Rude, lewd, and dangerous to utter, this alternative phrasebook shows how the French really talk, including their love of a good spoonerism and the body language that can get even the most clueless of tourists understood without them even opening their mouths. From such important personal slurs as "the bags under his eyes are more like suitcases," to those inevitable times when one finds that giving someone the finger is not enough and only the "bras d'honneur" will do, " Rude French" will help any weekend rubbernecker to either get by or get beaten up just like a native.
