Bob l’éponge

Thanks to Elise for pointing out that SpongeBob Square Pants is called Bob l’éponge in France (full name Bob l’Eponge au Pantalon Carré).  I love the fact that this translates as Bob the Sponge, but the phrase Bob l’éponge is equally amusing.  I also remember fondly the fact that in French, trousers are singular.

There remain to be questions about his sexual orientation (orientation sexuelle).
