Mr Miller, William, Bill - we are friends, yes? So better from a friend than otherwise.

Vat is dis 'rear facade'? Facade is French for 'frontage' or 'face'.

Huh?

According to Wikipedia:

A facade or façade (pronounced /fəˈsɑːd/) is generally one side of the exterior of a building, especially the front, but also sometimes the sides and rear. The word comes from the French language, literally meaning "frontage" or "face".

So the rear facade means the rear face. What's the matter with that?
