Cognitive dissonance
I briefly wondered if Ford Prefect had slipped a fish in my ear...

I was watching the Le Mans 24 minutes (a show featuring stuff in the run-up to tomorrow's Le Mans 24 hour race) and there was a French woman interviewing a French driver, in France.

In English.

Eurosport FTW

They then showed a bit of Best Of Crash nicked from MotorsTV and then an interview with Nadia Comaneci, during which for some reason the interviewer taught her how to eat scones properly.

Remember Marc Almond and Muriel Grey making mince pies on The Tube?
Also there is this wonderful quote from "How I won the Yellow Jumper" of the "Flemish speaking Sporza commentators" who "had a flair for dipping into every major European language"...
"Ooh la la. Fabian Cancellara. Wat een man. History in the making!"

celestialweasel had some difficulty with watching the streamed SABC2 coverage of the Comrades marathon though because they were switching sentence by sentence between Afrikaans, English and Zulu.
