What's French for "Ew"?

Spring break arrives, and that means it’s time for Emily to brush up on her sadly lacking French language skills. Emily, however, has much more important plans for her time—she is determined to keep the interest of her boyfriend Devon, and what better place to storm his Bastille than Paris?

Unfortunately her attempts to conquer strange French cuisine, Devon—and oh, yes, there’s that little thing about learning the language—end up in …well, let’s just call it The French Revolution II and leave it at that.
