Parlay voo fronsay?

La premyay minister a prond fronsay:
Premier Danny Williams went back to elementary school recently so he could say, en francais, “Quebec is giving Newfoundland and Labrador the shaft.”

He also learned how to say a couple of other choice phrases in French: “Miss, miss,” the Premier says, waving his hand impatiently while his seatmate, a little boy, looks quizzically at him. “I’ve got a question. How, how do you say, ‘Quebec is getting away with highway robbery’ in French?”
The laudable efforts at bilingualism on the part of Son premierosité will of course already be well-known to regular readers.
