What do ya expect from a bunch of frogs?
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.
Euope is now a non sequitar...
i think i am enjoying this bandwagon...
The French hate us because we invented deodorant, they can't figure out how to make it and they refuse to import it.

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.
"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.
Here's one I enjoy very much
An interesting analysis of France's actions in The Economist... and <b>not</b> in a good light...
