French Word of the Night : La Gueule de Bois


Salut WordPress!!

Don’t we all want to know a useful French word besides… Bonjour? :)

Well, that was a sarcastic comment, but I think knowing the French translation of ‘Hangover’ would perk your interest, and it wouldn’t be too much of a hassle to learn and memorize :)

What is pretty interesting about this translation is that, Gueule means long face, and Bois means Wood…

So .. Hangover= Wooden Face= LA GUEULE DE BOIS

Party safely!
