A New Word, A French Lesson

ga-vage [guhvahzh; Fr. gavazh] – noun, forced feeding, as by a flexible tube and a force pump.

(Many thanks dictionary.com!)

[Ferret and Wilder are talking as Wilder writes down his phone number in Ferret‘s book. Ferret suddenly interjects.]

Ferret

Oh, there’s a new word I learned today. I think it’s French.

[Ferret points to the word “gavage” written in his book. Wilder‘s eyes bulge and he snickers.]

Wilder

Oh yes, that’s French.

Ferret

Yeah.

WIlder

Oh, you know what it means, right?

Ferret

Well, yeah.

[Ferret ponders the meaning of Wilder‘s smile.]

Ferret

I mean it can be used sexually, right?

Wilder

[incredulous]

What?

Ferret

Well, you know. I thought it could be used sexually as well.

Wilder

Well, not unless you’re doing it with a duck! Or one of those… what’s it called in English? The thing you use to make foie gras?

Ferret

A goose.

Wilder

Yeah. A goose.

Ferret

Oh, I just thought there’d be some dirty saying with it.

Wilder

Look, not everything in French has to do with sex.

Ferret

Haha, okay.
