Funny French Bashing Quote, Anyone have more to add? :)

" . . . you know frankly, going to war without France
is like going deer hunting without an accordion. You
just leave a lot of useless noisy baggage behind."

These words were spoken by Jed Babbin, a former deputy
undersecretary of defense in the first Bush
administration, during a 30 January 2003 appearance on
the political talk show Hardball.

My Car WOO HOO...... Now SOLD
New car.... 2001 Jaguar XJR!!!!

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.
Thomas Jefferson

I still like Homer Simpson's epithet: "Cheese-eating surrender-monkeys"

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

An old saying about the cheese-eating surrender monkeys: Raise your right hand if you like the French.... Raise both hands if you are French.

France tops developed world corruption league
22 June 2006

France is the most corrupt country in the developed world, according to a new study published by the Institute of Economic Affairs.

The study of corruption in the developed world by economist Ian Senior awards Olympic-style medals for corruption at different levels of government and society, so that corruption by Presidents and Prime Ministers results in a gold medal and corruption by lesser politicians and officials leads to the award of silver or bronze medals.

According to this method, at the head of the medal table France receives four gold medals, Japan three gold medals and Italy two.

Is anyone surprised.....

1766 and all that ,
The forces of Revolutionary France invaded Britain but decided to advance no further than the French Embassy. We also learned that the Guillotine, terrifying agent of revolutionary justice, was named after a hideous crone called Mme La Guillotine, who bore a marked resemblance to Neil from the Young Ones.

Are you sure? I thought the agent of death was invented by a flame-haired, Irish descended Geordie executioner called Gill O'Tyne. She was quick to take off the head of anyone with a small brain but a big mouth. However, although she was indeed expert of dispatching many such cretin with one blow from her mighty axe, the splashes of blood on her shoes deeply troubled her, due to her particular penchant for elegant footwear. Accordingly, refusing to be seen in public in anything less than immaculate feminine pumps, and Jimmy Choo designer Wellingtons as yet an unimaginable dream, the only option was to develop a device capable of efficient multiple decapitations, whilst allowing the operator to enjoy the spectacle from a safe and sanitary distance. The rest, as they say, is history.

Footnote (pun intended)-Her progeny are rumoured to reside in the USA, from where the genes still assert their influence albeit via the more civilised 'Court of Reason' sometimes seen to sit on interweb fora.
