Pa, pa, pa, pa, pa, pa, pa, pa, pa PAH.




It is most reassuring to learn that the froggies are to lead the UN task force in Lebanon. Hezbollah are no doubt quaking in their boots at the prospect of having their asses wupped by the garlic eaters.

The French generally hold their noses when the Americans or British send troops overseas. They noise off about vile Anglo Saxons tramping over downtrodden peoples in far flung corners of the globe.

This really is the rankest hypocrisy given the French predilection for stomping all over their former colonies given the slightest excuse. Their pursuit of ‘la gloire’ is far more indicative of a former imperial power fantasising about its world status than anything the British do.

No doubt they will send the Foreign Legion. The poor sods always get dispatched to futile wars in which they receive a thorough kicking (Algeria, Vietnam). Only the French could come up with the idea of having an elite regiment composed almost entirely of foreigners. If lots of them get killed the French don’t really give a toss as they can always recruit more.

It’s genius really.

I believe my husband's favorite phrase for the French is "Cheese-eating surrender monkeys."

What subject do I teach? French.

My favourite topical joke of the year was

"What did the French do when they heard the Hemel Hempstead oil refinery explosion?"

"Surendered"

It's brilliance.

I bet that the Jihadists are quaking in their boots at the first sign of the French SurrenderFlag.
