Tokyo Mayor Shintaro Ishihara is the greatest man alive.
He’s not just the man who responds to North Korean aggression by daring them to attack. Now he insults the French.
A group of teachers and translators in Japan on Wednesday sued Tokyo’s outspoken nationalist governor for allegedly calling French a “failed international language,” a news report said.
Twenty-one people filed the lawsuit at the Tokyo District Court, demanding that Tokyo Gov. Shintaro Ishihara pay a total of 10.5 million yen (US$94,600) compensation for insulting the French language in remarks last October, national broadcaster NHK said. In their suit, the plaintiffs accused Ishihara of saying: “French is a failed international language because it cannot be used to count numbers.”
Shintaro Ishihara rocks. I’ve long criticized froglandish myself.
