Comic #1984

1 {scene: Dagobah}
1 Luke: Master, moving stones around is one thing. This is totally different.
2 Yoda: No! No different! Only different in your mind.
3 Yoda: You must unlearn what you have learned.
4 Luke: Well I've already forgotten my high school algebra and French, does that help?

I did French for half a year in high school. I don't think I remembered any of it beyond how to count to ten, and, "Je m'appelle Pmf."

Pmf was some sort of French-speaking, vaguely Dalek-like robot character in our French textbook. It was kind of freaky learning French from a robot, now I think back on it.

Algebra I haven't unlearned yet.

2019-08-03 Rerun commentary: Just to prove I wasn't imagining the Pmf thing, I did a search for "pmf french robot" and "je m'appelle pmf" - both of which brought up this comic as one of the top two hits.

However, there is at least one person who shares this memory with me!

It turns out that I wasn't making this up - there was indeed a school textbook for learning French, apparently published under the series title of "Eclair".

Either that, or I have the same implanted memories as some random editor in the UK.

(By the way, searching for "pmf french" without further qualifiers was singularly unhelpful.)
