Blog #32 "En Douille" / "Socket to Me"

Published on 12/01/2021

"En Douille" / "Socket to Me"   (Google translate)
Wink using a pun between "andouille" and this photo having multiple sockets.
The word "andouille" in french, is often used without much malice to define or apostrophize a clumsy person who has committed an imbecility: it is, generally with a rather affectionate familiar side, the synonym of imbecile, puppet, idiot, fool, etc. . In 
English, it was often use on then famous commedy shows of the 60s "Laugh-In" ,it have a different meaning that i won't describe here.

This photo was taken in Florida on an outdoor table of a tool vendor at the largest flea market in the USA. The Fort Lauderdale Swap Shop. Almost a city by itself, a curiosity not to be missed, an American madness of disproportionate size.
