Cul-de-Sac



Today, as I was walking on rue Jeanne-Mance close to the Hospital Hotel-Dieu, I saw this sign. At first, you might say there is nothing strange with it. For a native french speaker, I find it funny the way the word "dead end" in English has been translated to French Canadien as Cul-de-Sac (meaning word for word in english "Ass-of-Bag"). Anyway, today is New Year's Eve, and I wish to all of you to spend a good time with friends and family. See you next year...
