    I'm not really surprised the Germans like the French so much.

    French fries will ALWAYS be french fries. I've never met a French person, so I can't rightly say I hate them.

    They should get therapy for the self-hate thing, that's just not healthy.

    We offered kindly to donate them Calais
    And all they gave us back was the bidet
    They bottle water and call it Perrier
    That's why I hate the French, oh
    That's why I hate the French
    They all wear berets and they're all called Jaques
    They even steal from us the words they lack
    Le Weekend, Le camping and Cul-De-Sac
    That's why I hate the French, oh
    That's why I hate the French

    They claim their films were the best we've ever had
    Well I suppose Emannuel wasn't bad
    Charles Asnavour is always so depressed
    Wouldn't you be, if "oui oui" meant "yes"?

    Sacha Distel has raindrops falling on his head
    I wonder if Jean-Paul Satre knows he is dead?
    What I resent is that they're so good in bed
    That's why I hate the French, oh
    That's why I hate the French
    They bake their bread in such a naughty shape
    They brag about their wine and worship the grape
    They criticise out food, but then they eat crepe
    That's why I hate the French, oh
    That's why I hate the French

    And now they've started coming over here in droves
    French cigarrettes, Frenc letters, and french cloves
    I'm sick and tired of eating all this brie
    And I'll be buggered if I go to "gay" Paree...

    They're pretty cocky about their games in the dark
    They think with girls they light a special spark, but
    Look what the bastards did to Joan Of Arc
    That's why I hate the French, oh
    That's why I hate the French, mmmm
    That's why I hate the French.

    "Thursday's poll said 74 percent of Americans said whoever wins the second round of France's presidential election on May 6 should try to improve relations with the United States."

    Funny how Americans think improving relations with their country means blindly endorsing their politics.

    And what politics would those be exactly, when you can't get 74% of Americans to agree on much of anything...except maybe a dislike of our own president.

    The Germans would like the French, but in all honesty! Cant the French get along with themselves.

    I don't get the self-loathing. Still, I can't help but wonder if they feel like the glory days of the French are gone. I mean, hell, they're only on the UN Security Council 'cause Britain and America won the war--but if you had to pick new members today, I doubt they'd made the the cut geo-politically speaking.

    I also think that some of the global dislike for America (ONLY SOME) comes from our upstart attitude. Not even 300 years old, strutting around like we're something special.


    Improving relations =/= endorsing politics. See: Angela Merkel.

    Hey, are there many French TF fans are on this board?

    If the French don't like Le Transformers, they're definitely going on my national shitlist.

    I hope the French don't start cutting themselves. They cook a lot and have sharp knives.

    The existence of Daft Punk prevents me from speaking ill of France. You know, 'cause they're French. And they're awesome. So is Ubisoft, one of the best non-Japanese game developers I can think of. France also figured out that anime was cool a long time before the rest of the Western Hemisphere did. The French may be easy to poke fun at, but I can't really say anything too bad about them.

    Having been to France on several occassions, I can honestly say they are lovely people for the most part. I met as many rude french folk as I have rude americans on my extensive travels through the states.
