A friend of mine is an officer in the naval reserve.
A few weeks ago, He was attending a conference that included admirals in both the US and the French navies.
At a cocktail reception, my friend found himself in a small group that included an admiral from each of the two navies.
The French admiral started complaining that whereas Europeans learned many languages, Americans only learned English.
He then asked. “Why is it that we have to speak English in these conferences rather than you having to speak French?”
Without even hesitating, the American admiral replied.
“Maybe it is because we arranged it so that you did not have to learn to speak German.”
The group became silent.
The makers of French’s Mustard made the following recent statement:

The only thing we have in common is that we are both yellow.

French to Send Surrender Advisors to Iraq
In a stunning reversal of policy, French President Jacques Chirac announced today that the French government will be supporting the War on Terror after all. Five hundred soldiers from the elite L’Abandonnement du Field d’Honneur Battalion de Francais (French Surrender Battalion) of the Stranger Legion (Foreign Legion) are in the process of shipping out to Iraq where they will assist the elite Iraqi Republican Guards in their inevitable surrender to the overwhelming might of the American and British Armed Forces.
“Eet ees important to be haughty and insufferable when surrendering,” said General Philippe de Peepee, the Commanding Officer of the Surrender Battalion, who has personally surrendered in more than 200 battles going back to Dien Bien Phu in 1954.
“We French are ze world masters at surrendering, n’est ce pas, not like you arrogant Americans who never surrender. Ha, I spit on your filthy American victories.”
President Chirac also announced that his government will be sending 3,000 advisors from the elite Force du Collaborateur Francais (French Collaboration Force) to assist the Iraqis in collaborating with the Americans while pretending to be part of a non-existent resistance movement.
When Saddam Hussein asked Chirac to advise him as to how many troops would be needed to defend his capital city, Chirac replied, “I do not know. France has no experience in defending its capital city.”

“The French are a smallish, monkey-looking bunch and not dressed any better, on average, than the citizens of Baltimore.

If attacks continue on the continent they may be forced to further increase the alert to “Surrender”, or even as high as “Collaborate”.
“The French will only agree to go to war when we’ve proven we’ve found truffles in Iraq.” — Dennis Miller “What do you expect from a culture and a nation that exerted more of its national will fighting against DisneyWorld and Big Macs than the Nazis?” — Dennis Miller The French have only one actual fighting war hero, Joan of Arc, and they turned her over to the enemy!

I am a crack dealer in New Jersey who has recently been diagnosed as a carrier of the HIV virus. My parents live in a suburb of Philadelphia and one of my sisters, who lives in Bensenville, is married to a transvestite.
My father and mother have recently been arrested for growing and selling marijuana and are currently dependent on my other two sisters, who are prostitutes in Jersey City.
I have two brothers. One is currently serving a non-parole life sentence in Attica for murder of a teenage boy in 1994.The other brother is currently being held in the Wellington Remand Center on charges of sexual misconduct with his three children.
I have recently become engaged to marry a former Thai prostitute who lives in the Bronx and is still a part time “working girl” in a brothel.
All things considered, my main problem is this. I love my fiance and look forward to bringing her into the family and I certainly want to be totally honest with her. Should I tell her about my distant cousin who is French?
The recent tremors felt throughout France have been attributed to the fifty six thousand+ WWI & WWII U.S. soldiers spinning in their graves.
