Pétard means firecracker
in French. In Québec
however, it may mean that or "stud
." I guess "hottie
" would be more appropriate as it relates to fire -- hot. It definitely has to be a guy though.
Patrice est un pétard.
Patrice is a hottie.
Note that pétard comes from "péter" which means "to explode", but it also means "to fart" in slang.
