This is usually a french term of endearment, like honey, or sweetie. In french it is "mon chou"

u/jetpack324 Jun 28 '22 edited Jun 29 '22

I learned it as ‘mon petit chou’ which literally translates to ’my small cabbage’

Edit: I have been corrected by several people that while chou does mean ‘cabbage’, in this case it is short for a French pastry. Also ‘little’ is probably a better translation for‘petit’. Thank y’all for expanding my French vocabulary a bit.

Is endive/escarole related? Or are they closer to the lettuce family? I'm kind of fascinated by this. Because like escarole/flat leaf endive is kind of like kale, but some endive is more like arugula, and Belgian endive is kind of closer to bok choy.

We had a Belgian exchange student in our American French class, and she took pains to explain to the teacher "Do NOT teach your students that 'baiser' means 'to kiss.' I mean, it does mean it literally, but that's NOT how we use it on the streets."

u/BookQueen13 Jun 29 '22 edited Jun 29 '22

So how do you say "to kiss" in modern french slang?

25

u/Arbre_gentil Jun 29 '22

Depends. "Faire un bisou" works in some cases, "embrasser" is the most generic.

Also depends because in Belgium, Switzerland or some regions of France it might be different.

11

u/Foxkilt Jun 29 '22

Embrasser (not slang, just regular language)

Which used to mean to hug, but doesn't anymore

4

u/FrenchCorrection Jun 29 '22

The most common slang among teenagers would be "pécho", which translates to "to catch" but with inverted syllabes (in some parts of France it means to fuck so be careful). A slightly older slang would be "rouler une pelle", to roll a shovel, but it’s not widely used. Another one is "faire des bails", there isn’t any way to translate it (it would literally means "sign a contract for a home"), but it is really hard to use properly bc it can mean anything, from kissing to having sex to dealing with a hardship

If you meant to say "I want to kiss your dog" it would be like you were saying it in a play from the 1600s. Baiser is now exclusively "to fuck." I have seen non-native French speakers make that mistake, usually to the great amusement of the French.

It is, and both Phillip and Elizabeth are fluent in French, but this is not actually where it comes from.

English cuisine is, in the modern age, less bland than it is made out to be, but in the early days of Queen Elizabeth, due to war rationing and a bigoted fear of "foreign" spices, English meals consisted of mostly porridge. Compared to this, the cabbage, like radishes, were actually considered the height of hot spiciness at the time. Essentially, Phillip was calling Elizabeth "hot af" - a second piece of context: young Elizabeth is what was considered hot at the time.

The French actually started saying it ironically after, on a royal trip to France to meet President Jacques Chirac, Prince Philip (putting on his best sexy voice) called Elizabeth a cabbage in a moment when they didn't realise they were filmed (back then in England it was customary for the press to give the Royal Family privacy when asked, but French journalists were famous for their aggressive paparazzi tactics - a tradition kept until at least 1997)

My friend's affectionately nicknamed "fudge", which her entire family calls her. Even me. IMHO, she earned it.

During an ultrasound, her baby was always in a bad position for measurements. She heard sugar makes the baby move, so she ate AN ENTIRE BOX of fudge pops before the appointment. Then proceeded to puke them all up into the garbage in the office, making the entire place smell like vomit and chocolate.

Thus, even her kids will occasionally call her fudge, or fudgey. She hates it.

u/HotTakes4HotCakes Jun 29 '22 edited Jun 29 '22

Nutcracker was an adaptation of a German novel, though I have no idea if the sugar plum fairy is in it.

Sugarplums are old candy that were often associated with Christmas long before the Nutcracker was first written. In fact Twas the Night Before Christmas predates the Nutcracker by 60 years, with sugar plums dancing through kids heads and all that. That poem was written by an American, but that's not really relevant. It's pretty clear in the early 1800s, the sugarplum candy/treats were a well known staple of Christmas traditions and it's not unreasonable to assume that extended into Europe.

It's just something so old we don't ever talk about anymore and barely anyone remembers, but the word itself has stuck around because of its connotation with "sweet", and occasional references in old Christmas traditions.
