    An American is having breakfast, in Paris, one morning (coffee, croissants, bread, butter and jam) when a Frenchman, chewing bubble-gum, sits down next to him. The American ignores the Frenchman who, nevertheless, starts a conversation.

    Frenchman: "You American folk eat the whole bread??"

    American (in a bad mood): "Of course."

    Frenchman: (after blowing a huge bubble) "We don't. In France, we only eat what's inside. The crusts we collect in a container, recycle it, transform them into croissants and sell them to the states." The Frenchman has a smirk on his face.

    The American listens in silence.

    The Frenchman persists: "Do you eat jelly with the bread??"

    American: "Of Course."

    Frenchman: (cracking his bubble-gum between his teeth and chuckling) "We don't. In France we eat fresh fruit for breakfast, then we put all the peels, seeds, and leftovers in containers, recycle them, transform them into jam, and sell the jam to the states."

    After a moment of silence, The American then asks: "Do you have sex in France?"

    Frenchman: "Why of course we do", he says with a big smirk.

    American: "And what do you do with the condoms once you've used them?"

    Frenchman: "We throw them away, of course."

    American: "We don't. In America, we put them in a container, recycle them, melt them down into bubble-gum, and sell them to France."

    When I think of how everyone hates France I just think of this scene from The Simpsons....

    *sigh* So easy to pick on the French. Still, I always have that special place in my heart for them for the small but significant help they provided in America winning its independance.

    Now why can't the little bastards take a page from their own history and make something of themselves? (^_^)

    Yeah, but the latest is the French are blaming us for their expanding waist lines. Next they will be blaming Bush for it I'm sure. [roll] [lol]

    Why? Did we introduce them to decent food? They could've gotten that from the Germans, and would have, if the US hadn't bailed their butts out of the wringer TWICE.

    They're blaming us for the fast food joints, no one is twisting their arms to go in and eat it either.

    Sitting together on a train, traveling through the Swiss Alps, are a French guy an American guy, an old Greek lady and a young blonde Swiss girl. The train goes into a dark tunnel and a few seconds later there Is the sound of a loud slap. When the train emerges from the tunnel, the Frenchman has a bright red hand print on his cheek.

    No one speaks.
    The old lady thinks: The Frenchman must have groped the blonde in the dark, and she slapped his cheek.
    The blonde thinks: That Frenchman must have tried to grope me in the dark, but missed and fondled the old lady and she slapped his cheek
    The Frenchman thinks: The American must have groped the blonde in the dark. She tried to slap him but missed and got me instead.
    The American thinks: I can't wait for another tunnel, so I can smack that Frenchman again.
