CasketWhat?  It must be hard to run with that on his head!

Translation:  « Il porte un cercueil quand il joue au baseball. »

Why wrong:  Casket is a false friend. It doesn’t mean casquette. 

What are “false friends?”  False friends are words from different languages which look similar but have different meanings. There are over 1,700 false friends between English Checklistand French.

Correct it:  What is meant here is cap as in “He wears a cap when he plays baseball.”
