My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Paris. Only bad experience was getting duped into paying $12 for a "large coke with lots of ice"

For one day of the three weeks we were there, we took a train to Disneyland Paris so when our liberal friends asked about "what we did in Paris" we could answer, "We went to Disneyland"...just to watch them have seizures.

Well I thought they were referring to the other Paris. I need to be repatriated.

Somehow I knew that was coming.
With a weak stomach like that, you'll never get to enjoy Paris or French cuisine.

French Andouillette:
The chitterling sausage fashioned from the lower intestinal tract of some unfortunate beast and has about it - forgive me - an unmistakable smell of something's bum.

But the chitterling in its French incarnation, the Andouillette, remains a daily part of life all over France, served with mustard where you might think some kind of deodorant would be more appropriate.
The taste for body parts runs very deep. At one state dinner I was served a pig's ear, nestling weirdly on a pile of warm shredded red and green cabbage. It was the oddest thing I'd ever been given, with the possible exception of a shelled tortoise I once ate in China which looked amazingly like a translucent balloon stuffed with jelly. The ear was a much sterner test of character though, in the sense that it was all I could do not to lean down and start whispering into it confidentially.

Au contraire mon ami, I love French food and I will eat escargots all day long. Les pattes de grenouilles are like my favorite too.
