It has come to my understanding that the word 'Orange' was introduced into the English language by means of the French in effort to destroy the beauty of English.
How exactly?
Well, look at its effect it poetry or lack therefore of. Orange does not rhyme with any other word in English therefore cannot be used in poetry. Just imagine not being able to describe a sweet fruit or an ugly color.

Even the sound of Orange is not 'anglacized' it doesn't sound like an English word at all. Sounds very alien
Pronounced: Oh - renj and not reinj as in 'range'

I suggest renaming the fruit to 'Firefruit
and the color to 'Fiery'

In retaliation, we need to force the French to adopt words that will sound horrible in their language such as 'Car, computer, and red'
The French language has reign supreme in the beauty of their sounds. It is time another language takes the top

English people always thinking they are the centre of the world. In German we have the same thing. "Orange" doesnt rhyme with anything. Did the French corrupt us as well?

The German language itself has not contributed to the the modern terms of today.
In better description, in the past 500 years, Spanish, French, and English words have found their terms across foreign languages.

(Colonial)Spanish: Chocolate, Tornado, Plaza, Armada, cafeteria, (And many foods and animals)
(PostColonial)French: Veal, Beef, Action, Connection, (And many foods)
(Modern)English: Computer, Internet, Fastfood, Weekend, jeans, Cellphone, (Technology related words)

As you can see the words that these languages introduced can be divided by
Spanish: Food and new world animals
French: Food and infrastructure
English: Technology

Germany has never affected languages in the modern world, the German language itself is aesthetically ugly.
versuchen
uns
wieder
Tier
Punkt
Mutter
Welt

This gives rise to the thought that German should not be written using a roman scripit, as it was not really one, thus, the Germanic people's appropriated our culture.
The German language has been a cultural stain on European

Almost all of your examples have German words to replace them. We havent been affected by foreign languages that much. So I dont see your point.

Chocolate doesn't come from Spanish but from native American 'xocolatl'. You'd think that someone called Emperor Cacao would know.

PS: English is ugly af, French is second in line.

Chocolate did come from Indigenous languages, but it was Spanish that made it a global term.

Ah, but it was the English-speakers that chose to accept "orange" as an English word, so the French aren't really to blame. That, and this language has incredibly inconsistent rules, as well as homophones and synonyms and such, which get annoying when not used for joking.

Saying the English accepted the word orange is like saying the Jews accepted the holocaust.
That is disgusting language and you should apologize for making a mockery of the holocaust.

The words "fruit", "color", "suggest" and the prefix "re-" also came from French.
"range" also does.

Germany has never affected languages in the modern world


Demonstrably false.

You seem to imply that the French speakers had some control of the English language. Normally I wouldn't say this, but how stupid are you?! If French-speakers could choose what words are English, then this whole language would be French. Also, French-speakers have no more control of what is English then I have over what my brother says (none).
