Speaking of Paris, have you heard about this book, Bringing Up Bébé: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting? In the UK, it’s called French Children Don’t Throw Food. Presumably the US publishers paused for a minute and thought, “Wait a minute, didn’t we just publish a book called French Women Don’t Get Fat? We better call it something else, non, mon ami? Oui?” The Guardian’s John Crace is calling merde du taureau in another hilarious Digested Read. The French is especially atrocious. Like mine. The picture of the french kid with a cheesy mustache, baguettes, and an ashtray tied to his head is a nice touch as well.
