LeDomduVin: Proverbe du jour

Proverbe du jour 

"Le soutien gorge rembourré. Le vin aussi."😂

To fully grasp this "play-on-words" and its metaphorical meaning, one must either be French or possess a thorough understanding and mastery of the subtleties of the French language.

Literally, it translates as "The padded bra. The wine too.", which does not mean much, just as is. 

Yet, in French, the word "rembourré" (meaning "padded" or "stuffed" in English) sounds and is pronounced like "rend bourré" (meaning "makes you drunk" in English), which completely changes the sense of the sentence that now could be translated as: "The bra makes you stuffed (meaning "drunk"). The wine too." ... 

Funny, isn't it? Well, maybe not in English... but it is really funny in French. 😁👍🍷 

Cheers! Santé!
