Is this for real, and if it is, are we allowed the cheat that is Wikipedia? 'Cause you'll understand I need to know, and they have all the answers. All of them.

No Cheating!

Seriously - Anne, you should know this, you live in the largest French-speaking City on the planet . . . just think which one is the 2nd largest.

Rollin - that is not corr . . .arghhhhhh.

Seriously, I'd be tempted to say Montreal, but I'm afraid this is a trick question and the answer is some city in French Indochina that still uses French...

I'll go with Montreal, though, since I can't actually think of any cities in Asia that I think would actually speak French, unlike those silly Canadians...

Rollin wins . . .

I would say "A big heaping basket of absolutely nothing" in French, but I don't know how.

Anyone?

Anne?

But like Rollin, I'm thinking this is a trick question and the answer is actually Paris, France.

Nope, it's Montreal.

Thanks Anne - you were most helpful.

I don't know why I keep competing in these contests here at PS, I keep getting imaginary gifts and French expressions that are as empty as, well, French expressions...

Next time I should read the fine print before entering...

Alas Rollin, we have no budget to mail you the trophies that keep stacking up here in the sub-basement . . . next to all the leftover cheese-dip.

I guess telling all your friends that you have an imaginary trophy isn't quite as cool as showing them the cheap, plastic item in all it's real glory . . . huh?

Sorry about that - Ben O.
