There is a (snopes-confirmed) apocryphal story that former US President George W. Bush commented to then British Prime Minister Tony Blair that the problem with the French “… is that they don’t have a word for entrepreneur”. As much as I would like to think it’s true, it happens not to be.
However, that’s doesn’t stop us from having fun with a bit of word-play. I would like to come up with as many of these as possible, and I am looking for donations: How many “The X can’t Y: they have no word for Z” are there out there? I’d say there’re thousands. I’m going to kick it off here, and anyone who wants to leave a sample or a few, please do so as comments, and I’ll add them to the post.
