Subj: Elderly Man Arrives At DeGaulle Airport (S451, DU)
From: rickydwyman on 9/2/2005
An elderly gentleman of 83 arrived
in Paris by plane. At
the French customs desk, the man took a few minutes to
locate his passport in his carry-on bag.
"You have been to France before,
monsieur?" the customs
officer asked, sarcastically.
The elderly gentleman admitted
he had been to France previously.
"Then you should know enough to have your passport ready".
The American said, "The last
time I was here, I didn't have
to show it".
"Impossible. Americans always
have to show your passports on
arrival in France!"
The American senior gave the
Frenchman a long hard look. Then
he quietly explained, "Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach
on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't
find any Frenchmen to show it to".

French: (after blowing a huge

The Frenchman persists: "Do you

When Charles deGaulle decided

wife was talking with Madame deGaulle.
"Your husband has been such a

comparison. What are you most looking forward to in

"A penis," replied Madame deGaulle.
A huge hush fell over the table.

Subj: Arab Riots In France (S462b, DU)
From: LABLaughsAdult on 11/28/2005
We turn to France, whose decision
to stay out of the Iraq
war is starting to make more sense. After all, why go all
the way to the Mideast when you can fight Muslims in your
very own suburbs? JON STEWART
The streets of the suburb of
Clichy-sous-Bois have been
filled with angry, mostly unemployed Arab and African
immigrants setting fire to hundreds of cars. Their
message: We're mad as hell, and we're not going to let
you park here anymore. JON STEWART
Night after night of rioting
and looting and burning cars,
but don't worry because the French government is working
around the clock to figure out a way to blame it on us.
The riots in France have been
through their second week.
No signs of slowing. Now first of all, let me
congratulate the French on whatever sporting event they
apparently won. STEPHEN COLBERT

Subj: Who Stands Alone... Poem (DU)
by Michael Marks
From: JBCARY1 on 4/22/2003
Eleven thousand soldiers lay
beneath the dirt and stone,
all buried on a distant land so far away from home.
For just a strip of dismal beach they paid a hero's price,
to save a foreign nation they all made the sacrifice.
And now the shores of Normandy
are lined with blocks of
white, Americans who didn't turn from someone else's plight.
Eleven thousand reasons for the French to take our side, but
in the moment of our need, they chose to run and hide.
Chirac said every war means loss,
perhaps for France that's
true, for they've lost every battle since the days of Waterloo.
Without a soldier worth a damn to be found in the region, the
French became the only land to need a Foreign Legion.
You French all say we're arrogant.
Well hell, we've earned
the right-- We saved your sorry nation when you lacked the
guts to fight. But now you've made a big mistake, and one
that you'll regret; you took sides with our enemies, and that
we won't forget.
It wasn't just our citizens you
spit on when you turned,
but every one of ours who fell the day the towers burned.
You spit upon our soldiers, on our pilots and Marines,
and now you'll get a little sense of just what payback means.
So keep your Paris fashions and
your wine and your champagne,
and find some other market that will buy your aeroplanes. And
try to find somebody else to wear your French cologne, for
you're about to find out what it means to stand alone.
You see, you need us far more
than we ever needed you.
America has better friends who know how to be true.
I'd rather stand with warriors who have the will and might,
than huddle in the dark with those whose only flag is white.
I'll take the Brits, the Aussies,
the Israelis and the rest,
for when it comes to valor we have seen that they're the
best. We'll count on one another as we face a moment dire,
while you sit on the sideline with a sign "friendship for
We'll win this war without you
and we'll total up the cost,
and take it from your foreign aid, and then you'll feel the
loss. And when your nation starts to fall, well Frenchie,
you can spare us, just call the Germans for a hand, they
know the way to Paris.

Subj: History Of The French Military (S318b)
From: JBCARY1 on 2/13/2003
Gallic Wars - Lost. In a war
whose ending foreshadows the
next 2000 years of French history, France is conquered by
of all things, an Italian.
Hundred Years War - Mostly lost,
saved at last by female
schizophrenic who inadvertently creates The First Rule of
French Warfare; "France's armies are victorious only when
not led by a Frenchman."
Italian Wars - Lost. France becomes
the first and only
country to ever lose two wars when fighting Italians.
Wars of Religion - France goes 0-5-4 against the Huguenots.
Thirty Years War - France is
technically not a participant,
but manages to get invaded anyway. Claims a tie on the basis
that eventually the other participants started ignoring her.
War of Devolution - Tied. Frenchmen
take to wearing red
flowerpots as chapeaux.
The Dutch War - Tied War of the Augsburg League/
King William's War/French and
Indian War - Lost, but claimed
as a tie. Three ties in a row induces deluded Frogophiles
the world over to label the period as the height of French
War of the Spanish Succession
- Lost. The War also gave the
French their first taste of a Marlborough, which they have
loved every since.
American Revolution - In a move
that will become quite
familiar to future Americans, France claims a win even
though the English colonists saw far more action. This is
later known as "de Gaulle Syndrome", and leads to the
Second Rule of French Warfare; "France only wins when
America does most of the fighting."
French Revolution - Won, primarily
due the fact that the
opponent was also French.
The Napoleonic Wars - Lost. Temporary
the First Rule!) due to leadership of a Corsican, who
ended up being no match for a British footwear designer.
The Franco-Prussian War - Lost.
Germany first plays the
role of drunk Frat boy to France's ugly girl home alone
on a Saturday night.
World War I - Tied and on the
way to losing, France is
saved by the United States. Thousands of French women
find out what it's like to not only sleep with a winner,
but one who doesn't call her "Fraulein." Sadly, widespread
use of condoms by American forces forestalls any improvement
in the French bloodline.
World War II - Lost. Conquered
French liberated by the
United States and Britain just as they finish learning
the Horst Wessel Song.
War in Indochina - Lost. French
forces plead sickness, take
to bed with the Dien Bien Flu.
Algerian Rebellion - Lost. Loss
marks the first defeat of a
western army by a Non-Turkic Muslim force since the Crusades,
and produces the First Rule of Muslim Warfare; "We can always
beat the French." This rule is identical to the First Rules
of the Italians, Russians, Germans, English, Dutch, Spanish,
Vietnamese and Esquimaux.
War on Terrorism - France, keeping
in mind its recent history,
surrenders to Germans and Muslims just to be safe. Attempts
to surrender to Vietnamese ambassador fail after he takes
refuge in a McDonald's. Let's face it. When it comes to
war, France gets rolled more often than a Parisian prostitute
with a visible mustache. They've been beaten so many times
there's no fight left in them.

that we can leave behind." -- Jed Babbin (former deputy
undersecretary of defense) on Fox News.
