The BBC's website has a fact of the day section and I normally glance at in passing but never give it a second thought.
However, I thought today's facts might prove interesting to the goat enthusiasts on Club Lexus;
[The ancient Greek word tragomaskalos means 'with armpits smelling like a he-goat'.
- tremendous word and one which I'll be making efforts to drop into conversations this week. I'd like to think we could spread its popularity a bit - particularly with the summer months approaching.
By candlelight, a goat looks like a lady. FRENCH PROVERB
Don't know what to make of this one. Does this show French women in a bad light? Or is it a case that life as goat in France is quite good, with frequent opportunities for candlelit suppers with Frenchmen. Or are dating opportunites generally poor for Frenchmen and suitable alternatives have to be found?
Either way, I'm looking at both goats and the French in a new light (not
candlelight, I hasten to add!).
