All'interno del suo programma più recente, 19th Nervous Hoedown, l'encomiabile Radio Free Song Club accoglie su consiglio di Peter Blegvad una garbata annotazione di Karen Mantler a margine dello studio dei verbi irregolari in francese: "My mother and I have been studying French for 20 years and still can’t speak it. We decided to give up on learning common phrases and concentrate on irregular verbs. I wrote this song because memorizing them by rote didn’t seem to be helping. I jumbled them all up so you would really have to think about each one. But it didn’t really work because now the only way I can remember them is by singing through the song to find the one I want!". Speak French, mais oui!
