Vulgar French

When we picture them, some expressions or popular (in the sense of ‘of the people’) sayings are quite disgusting. But we use them (or not) because they convey a strong feeling. In English we say ‘to have one’s head up one’s…’ ? Well, in French it works pretty much the same way.

It could be more or less useful to know certain of these slang expressions and sayings, so check out these pictures and see if you can match them with the polite definitions bellow.

  • To be tired
