The origin of the phrase "Pardon my French" because of its odd sounding pronounciation. Phoque-prounced Fhawk, means seal in French. The pronounciation sounds like a similar word used by today's kids and therefore when asking for forgiveness after a bad word is said, the statement "Pardon my French" can be used to alleviate the tension.
