@Massive Liar, my high school French helped middle my way through this.

@I shjt you not, you took one for the team for the name of comedy I supported you
@I shjt you not, waiving a white flag, eh? How French of you.
@I shjt you not, never took French in high school but I do know English and I took Spanish, which I know very very very little of even after 3 years of takin it. I used the words structure and context clues to figure out what it was saying.
@BunnyGruff, I got the English part of the joke and understand the French portion was a retort. Just trying to be humorous. I try
@I shjt you not, in German potato is either Erdapfel or Kartoffel

Someone translate all of this and proceed to get top comment
@BIessthefaII, I love how pineapple is said pineapple in English which literally means "apple of pine," what kind English man saw it and said "Oh this strange fruit resembles a big, how do you say POMME/APPLE hmmm ... but rather an apple that grows in... hu hu hu PINES! OH YES, IT'S A PINEAPPLE!"
(you see, we can do it too... hon hon hon!)
@Amethyst Sky, What's funny is... it's sweet like an apple and prickly like a pine cone... So...
This is the only time I have ever used the French I was forced to learn, still don't understand half
This one took some context clues.
But potatoes aren't a legume... They are in the nightshade family.
@Puffcific Northwest, Legumes is a cooking classification of some ingredients, it has no bearing on the biological classification of said ingredients.
@Scientia estPotentia, no, legumes are things in the Fabaceae family, whether you are cooking them or classifying them. Lègumes on the other hand is French for vegetable.
The French part makes fun of the English for seeing a l'anana (pineapple in french) and saying oh its an apple with pins let's call it a pineapple. It's a comeback for the English making fun of pommel de terre
Im from quebec soooooo
It's because back in the Middle Ages most new fruits and vegetables were called apples. It was only later we started naming them bananas or such.
@Marky Mark Wahlberg, Bonus fun fact - some scholars argue that this is where the misconception that Eve ate an apple came from.
@BigGoodWolf, its believed she actually ate a pommegranate
"Apple and pin!"
Hey we won the war France! You speak American!
@butthole bread, but we didn't fight them...
@Massive Liar, but it's France so you could say that they just surrendered to fight us.
@butthole bread, We were on their side! The whole time!
@Massive Liar, something tells me that you are lying to me...
@Massive Liar, you mean they were on our side!
@butthole bread, Only if you believe in revisionist history.
@Massive Liar, i would like to stop you right there and thank you for teaching me a new word. I hadn't heard of revisonist history before. I tip my fidora to you good sir.
@butthole bread, Not a problem m'commenter. *tips fedora*
This is dumb. Can I get a translated copy of this?
cuz muricans named it pineapple rather than ananas like every other language. doesnt even resemble an apple
I'm just surprised that the French retaliated instead of surrendered...
So happy I took french right now
Most people say patate in french instead of pomme de terre
So glad I took French in elementary and middle school haha go Canada
