Is it true that the French call paper clips 'trombones'?
For example, Lyle, if you were to ask your wife if you had any trombones in the house... how would she know if you meant the instrument of the handy office equipment?
Or do you have a different word for trombones? Do you call them 'paper clips?
You crazy French. At least you're sexy.
