The Spanish anthem is even more patriotic...

(Oh Lord, I can't resist an easy/bad joke)

Well, I guess it wouldn't have been so noisy...

badaude

That's ok! Just drop me a line to talk about it.

hi there!

Le patron allégé plus sain:

(Try our) more wholesome fat-free boss.

(As for le sang impur, the common deconstruction of this quite unpolitically correct line in the national anthem is that "impure blood" is actually french blood: La Marseillaise, written during the Revolution for the first contingent of conscripts in french history, glorified the fact that common men, peasants, could at last bear arms to defend la patrie when it had been la noblesse's raison d'être for centuries. Le sang impur would be then the blood of peasants, as opposed to the allegedly "pure" blood of nobles, which would after their death on the battlefield fertilize their own lands ("abreuve no sillons"): these wars were fought on french soil after all. It was a way of saying: by defending your lands, you're just doing what you always did and what your sons will do: cultivating.)

...certainly less offensive, though possibly a little pessimistic?
Like the healthy fat-free boss. We should all have one.
