Some people have funny laughs, don't they? Some people have funnier little idioms. The only person I've ever actually heard describe someone's face as being "like thunder" is probably my mum, yet it's such an evocative phrase that its scarcity actually surprises me. I've also met people who haven't recognised certain phrases I thought were quite commonplace. On a completely unrelated note, I thought up the title for Towser's new exhibit after reading the names of Auguste Rodin's La Porte de l'Enfer and Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux's L'Amour à la folie. The French language has a strange, natural elegance to it, even if it turns out the bloke on the train station platform isn't reciting poetry, but turning the air blue because he doesn't like your shoes.
