Default French expressions.

This morning, I had coffee with my French neighbour - male. We discussed my recent visit to meet the new village mayor. I said he was not at all friendly towards me and had spoken to me in rocket speed French. I laughed saying i would not go out of my way to meet him again. My neighbour leaned back in his chair and said "Il a un visage comme une porte de prison" - that man he has the face of a prison door. I have to admit I have laughed all afternoon about it - a perfect description.

To date this is my favourite and I am sure you all have even better ones.
