Like with the German word geil, I can't help but laugh every time I see the French talking about colère. For a Dutch speaker, both words are always going to be unavoidably funny.

(And yes, last Saturday, 11 days after the event, the Jean Quatremer was still angry about Commissioner Reading's Nazi comparison, his usual left-wing tendencies notwitstanding. To make matters worse, she said it in English! [Warning: that article also talks about colère.])
