Merovingian likes French!

Deductive Reasoning- Cause and Effect

The Merovingian, also known as the Frenchman is a fictional character in The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, portrayed by Lambert Wilson in both films.

Here’s is a quote from The Merovingian:

The Matrix Reloaded (2003)

Merovingian: Something to eat? Drink? Of course these things are contrivances, like so much here, for the sake of appearances.
Neo: No thankyou.
Merovingian: Yes, of course. Who has time? Who has time? But then if we never *take* time, how can we have time?

Merovingian: I love French wine, like I love the French language. I have sampled every language, French is my favorite. Fantastic language. Especially to curse with. Nom de dieu de putain de bordel de merde de saloperie de connard d’enculé de ta mère. It’s like wiping your ass with silk. I love it.

At work the atmosphere within the team is cool and special! Special, one aspect of it is because the French Managers (including mine)  are not less funny than Gad Elmaleh. Just as the Merovingian love the french expressions for cursing, the managers do the same. Consequently, within their company, we got to hear in their jokes  very frequently terms as:

mettre/foutre le bordel

On s’fait chier!

Putain…….

du connerie

bull shit – in french accent

on aura gallérer à faire…

merde…

The point is that despite the work pressure on each team member, we keep time to crack jokes and share fun moments.
