Or my version: laissez les bonnes têtes rouler

Come on guys and gals. That's not fair to those of us who don't speak German. <g> Would someone care to translate?


Tom [who neither top-posts nor bottom-posts but chooses instead to mid-post],

Lou's line is a Cajun French cliché, let the good times roll.

Lori's version is, minus a circonflex, let the good heads roll.

Peter responded by correcting the erroneous ending on roll (it was the second person you roll rather than the infinitive to roll; that's what he fixed). Then he added, in parens, "Here we speak [literally one speaks] franglais [French-English creole]. It's truly Friday and I'm feeling very certifiable."

Happy to help.
