funny story

So, at the museum of nature in Ottawa, we were looking at the arctic exhibit – a display of a polar bear and her cub, and a seal poking its head through the ice. Most everyone else at the museum was speaking French. I kept wondering why I was hearing all these little kids around me swearing, and then I remembered that the French word for seal is “phoque.”
