The French Are Too Good for Ridiculous American Words Like 'Hashtag'Madeleine Davies1/25/13 4:20pmFiled to: hashtagFranceLanguage185EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkYo, France, don't you think it's time that we put aside our differences and got along? I know we failed to help you out with the French Revolution, but, then again, you made some pretty stupid alterations to the Big Mac. Then there was that whole freedom fries debacle, but you'd think, seeing as we also gave you Jerry Lewis, that you could let bygones be bygones. And do you know how many of us saw Les Mis this past month? So many, so why do you now have to get all uppity about the word "hashtag"?
