English to French translations [PRO] Poetry & Literature / theatre play
English term or phrase:wide...gone on a diet
(while watching a football match) Dan is English, Birgitta is German
Dan: Oh, Beardsley was wide. Beardsley was wide!
B: Beardsley was wide, but now he's gone on diet.
D: Birgitta. YOu are an exciting and sexy woman. Please don't spoil it by making feeble jokes.
play on words-wide=passed/threw the ball but missed the target(person). wide=broad=fat(less common but understood as a play on words). you need to find Fr. equivalent, not direct translation. bonne chance.
