    I expect them to croak "Ree-BEET, ree-BEET" and leave it at that. This is apparently a game for grownups, not for strutting little peacocks who haven't figured out they're a former world power...and that American cuisine is kicking the French variant all over the map.

    The French hate us because we invented deodorant, they can't figure out how to make it and they refuse to import it.

    You guys are looking for complicated and rational reasons for a simple and irrational thing.

    The answer is basically that they hate us because they are so French.

    I can't understand it, from what I heard most of the 'Frenchmen and women' of the age 58 yrs of age are half American anyway.


    John.


    PS

    And the ones 62 to 58 are half German.

    Mike,


    " just might, I say might, make me change my opinion on rugby."


    Actually, I am NOT a Rugby fan. I just use the comparison to stir up the Yank Grid-Iron Pansy fans.

    I am a totally committed supporter of my beloved ESSENDON 'Bombers' Australian Rules Football team.

    biker,


    "Of course, some people think Foster's is real beer, too."


    Given that the north American 'Fosters' (lager) is brewed by the Canadian brewer Molsens, one cannot compare this with the 'Real thing'.

    Anyway, I drink 'Bitter Ale', usually in the form of 'Tooheys Red'.

    **chuckle** Very familiar with the "Australian" brand.

    Bitter, huh? I do miss that from my days in the UK. Unfortunately, the heathens here in North America truly do not appreciate a good brew.

    Biker,


    "the heathens here in North America truly do not appreciate a good brew."


    North Americans have not yet figured out that the trick is to drink the stuff BEFORE it has passed through the digestive system, not as a recycled product.
