    The surrender thing was a deliberate attempt to get the rest of the world to let its guard down.

    We used to call them “Gauls”. The only reason they didn’t take over the world is because they realized they might not be able to wield their Ministry of Culture effectively thus allowing phrases like “weekend” to enter the language.

    Now that they have the internet, we must not (I REPEAT *MUST* *NOT*) let our guard down.Report

    I have a very proper anglo nurtured hatred of the french but alas they have us whipped around the block in the field of nuclear power so I can muster very little scorn to heap upon them. Still in the spirit of the post, a few French jokes:

    Q: How many gears does a French tank have?
    A: 4. 3 for reverse and 1 for forward in case the enemy attacks from behind.

    Q: Why did the French plant trees along the Champs Elise?
    A: So the Germans could march in the shade.Report
