French Doomed?
 
Data calls French archaic. (The French captain has an English accent)
Professor Farnsworth calls it crazy gibberish. (in the pilot the French speak English)

What makes French more likely to disappear in the future in favor of British English? Is WWIII started by the Brits finally having enough? :p


Oh, and this is a light-hearted thread for those of you who don't understand humor. :rolleyes:

What kind of food is "doomed"? I know "toast" and "fries", which is a fairly dooming fate for the ingredients already.

They are not willing to let their language adapt, stagnation is just a less abrupt word for death. :p

What happened was that in the year 2065, the French-French speakers got into one of the most heated arguments about language with the Canadian-French speakers that the French-speaking world had ever known. They argued for about 5 years, almost non-stop until eventually, the two languages and debates simply cancelled each other out, thereby eliminating the language altogether.

This is a light-hearted discussion as to why every hollywood future relegates French to the annuls of history.

The comments in French are, honestly, expected and most of them are cliche anyway.
