You learn so much through the blogosphere, don't you. My minimal French is coming on in leaps and bound thanks to French spanko bloggers, like Olivier at excellent Desseins Coquins.
All those years ago when my teacher was droning on about la plume de ma tante. my uncle's bureau and the rest it didn't really capture my imagination. But the challenge of trying to get to grips with Desseins Coquins is really expanding my horizons.Of course, I also have Google Translate - which helps. Olivier drops in with a nice comment and I can instantly translate it. So, I think I know that le vent fripon means to cheat the wind.
Or it does if you run the phrase through Google Translate. If you run it through Google Image it seems to mean something like this.
