Newsweeque

interesting things on the Simpsons episode "The Crepes of Wrath" from http://www.snpp.com/episodes/7G13.html

French, as viewed by a Frenchman
Jean-Marc Vezien @{jmv} volunteered to study the episode from a French
point of view, and here's the result of his analysis:
Although ``Bart's Dog Gets an F'' remains my favorite, ``The Crepes
of Wrath'' is certainly a very good episode, especially for a French
native.
...
Cesar and Huguolin are two very famous characters of French
litterature, from the novel ``Manon des sources'' (Manon of the
Springs), two corrupted, bad-manered peasants of the 30's. They don't
happen to make wine, but steal the water from another guy's land by
obstructing his spring. ... But Cesar and Huguolin
represent the archetype of the typical narrow-minded, twisted farmer
of France at the beginning of the century, ready to commit any abuse
for a little money.
...
all the French speaking characters have a
American accent

:O
A few Austrian winemakers wanting to comete with the more highly-rated Germanic
wines, so they started adding diethylene glycol, a close cousin to antifreeze
(and may be a component of some antifreezes), which causes the wine to be
sweeter and more viscous.

I thought "Newsweeque" was hilarious. Here's a screen capture! woo!

et ils ont donn\'e mon chapeau rouge \`a l'\^ane
