Oooh, je ne sais quoi. Loogit you, Miles Austin. Very good, you mental midget football functionary. Bob Costas must now know if you know the meaning of several other French idioms that New York Times writers are prone to drop in the middle of trend pieces.

Savoir Faire? You know that one? Huh? Do you? Do you? Stammer some more for me, why don’t you?

Joie de vivre? That means lust for life. You know you sang that song? That’s Iggy Pop, you goddamn simp. If it isn’t Iggy Koopa, you wouldn’t know, would you?

What about esprit de corps, huh? You wanna step into the Costas Chalet and throw down some French? You best be ready to rouler, mon ami.
