Regarding the initial subject, I had misread the comment at the onset. Two taps means that water, hot and cold, spew out water. What I mainly see here, other than the more modern outfit, is one tap with two handles to regulate the flow of hot and cold separately.


Canadian french sounds more flamboyant or something, while french french sounds like the stereotype, always pissed off.
