Every once in a while I plug a random phrase into Google to see what it comes up with.

Today it was "J'ai le cafard".

In order:

J'ai le cafard = I have the blues
Tu as le cafard = You have the blues
Il a le cafard = He has the blues
(Nous, vous, ils, elles were also correct)

Then inexplicably...

Elle a le cafard = It has the blues!

Objectification in MT lol?
Isn't it ironic this should happen so close to International Women's Day
