Thanks Line. I thought it was a gag that must have been done before... but apparently not. Glad you liked. Terry

I bet we can both know if we google it!! Aha, and thus the reason for your poem: "cannot be adequately described"

When checking my facts, I too found Google chucking up this erroneous meaning. Je ne sais quois actually translates as ‘I do not know’ or ‘I do not know what’ (depending on your choice of expert). ‘Cannot be adequately described’ is, more correctly, a reason for using the expression. Thanks for your visit, Andrea. Terry
