A very shaky command of French, gained primarily from reading bilingual product labels in Canada. Comes from the common experience of reading cereal boxes during breakfast.
1. I would love to visit Quebec, but like most Albertans, I only know cereal box French.

2. Aaron: How did you know that "gratuit" meant "free"?

Barbara: Must be my cereal box French.

3. Edmonton hasn't won a championship in such a long time that someone vandalized their "City of Champions" sign to read "City of Champignons" ("City of Mushrooms") Even Edmontonians understand cereal box French.
