L'Autre Jacques

Cécilia Sarkozy will attend the funeral of TV entertainer Jacques Martin, to whom she was once married. Martin was an entertainer of the old school. Not everyone liked his work. But this bit on the imperfect of the subjunctive should bring a smile to the lips of any student who has slogged his way through to the end of French grammar 101.

oh well, if giscard AND jacques martin spoke like that (i didn't use the subjunctive for at least my first 2 or 3 years in france) -- i guess i don't feel so bad. that video is hilarious but it's a leetle unintelligible.

and who knew that cecilia was married to JM? dang.
