Bouraq - What's So Funny? (French)

Sun Feb 10, 2002 10:16 pm

I think this is not really related to aviation so I'm posting in this forum.

Remarks: I had to laugh at the name of this airline. Perhaps French-speakers among you will know what I mean.  Wink/being sarcastic

I don't get it. What's so funny about the name when it's spoken in French? I also speak French but I don't get the humor... anybody mind enlightening me?

Thanks in advance

In my mind, I kept thinking the french word "Bourrique" (which means an ass or donkey).

I thought it was obvious... Oh, well...
