My Laugh O' the Day: The Way the French Prez Pronounces the Russian Leader's Last Name

If you heard Macron's remarks today, you know that he pronounces it "poutine."

That's right: to the Frenchman in question (whose name, the ever helpful NatPo informs us, is pronounced "eh-mahn-yoo-EHL’ mah-KROHN’), the Russian's name is synonymous with a Quebecois concoction made of French fries, cheese curds and gravy.

And much like the comestible, Putin is greasy, indigestible and trés bad for you.
