New Brunswick — The Government of New Brunswick recently released their plan to replace French immersion with trying to have most New Brunswickers able to communicate in conversational French.
The plan, based apparently on data from someone’s ass, is to be accomplished by reducing exposure to practical French learning and replacing it with learning how to swear in French.
“I mean, even if you can’t speak one word of French, you can make both Acadians and Quebecois happy by just saying ‘Tabarnak!’ and ‘Estie!’ from time to time,” said Kris Austin.
The president of La Société des Acadiens, Manon Pahiggs, responded, “Quoi?! Hostie tabernacle!”
When Austin was told of Pahiggs’s comments, Austin replied, “Joyeux Noël and estie tabarnak to you too!”
