This is an alternative French phrasebook that takes an entertaining romp through the world of French slang. It contains slang words and phrases covering 15 different themes from shopping to sex and travel to the police; illustrations and explanations of typically French gestures such as the Gallic shrug and the bras d'honneur; a short history of "argot" (slang), and a look at argot in French literature; and French jokes and spoonerisms, from the corny to the crude.
