(Not so) hot take: I don’t like it when people police this sort of thing, not everyone can pronounce stuff from other languages. as someone with a v foreign name to most people i understand when it’s mispronounced and just help them out. Similarly, my very anglicised (is this even a word) accent means my other languages are spoken badly but like, as long as its understandable its all good

Still pretty bitter about their performance at the flag World Cup.

It is a cool flag and they have a very nice map on Wikipedia.

I hate saying this so much. The Spanish version is much easier, but of they have a version why dont we? Didn’t someone on here say they were in France recently and discovered pain o chocolat isnt even called that in France? It’s called chocolatini or something infinitely easier. We’re being stitched up I tell ya.
