Dear wannabes

If you want to use a French word in your English article to sound more educated, please make sure you spell it right.
It’s “voilà” not “walla”
Thank you.

  1. Ah là là .. these wannabes .. so many of them in such a small country 😀

  2. Not Lebanese. Americans.

  3. LOL! reminds me of a very important director where I worked a long time ago. MIT-graduate, pHd, etc. but he didn’t know a word of French. He asked me to translate a few sentences for him, and told me: what’s this “voyla”?
