Earlier today Sudoku was giving Rosebud her daily spelling lesson.

Sudoku:  Rosebud, spell "Des Moines".

Rosebud:  Awww, that's a hard one.

Me:  I think that's French.

Rosebud:  Aha! Thanks for telling me.  Now I know that it starts with something other than the letter "D".

 

"Des Moines" is French. It translates to "of the monks".
