The Brains Trust... any relation to Pinky and The Brain?
2002-05-03 04:47:55 PM  
It ain't no Onion folks...

Isn't Reich a German thing?

American expats will have to wear a mandatory mickey mouse hat.

The French suck at fighting wars. Remember we bailed them out of 2 world wars, and we covered their retreat from Vietnam. What are the going to attack with? Body odor?
2002-05-03 05:10:12 PM  
3horn gets the tool award for the Onion reference, Yes you know this is not the onion. Look at the title.

The French were actually quite good at fighting wars, until the Post-Napoleonic Period where it just kind of went downhill. But on the other hand, they did get rather good at fighting until they were pretty much bankrupt! And surrenders, boy lemme tell you...
2002-05-03 05:14:06 PM  
the only reason i checked the thread here was for some amusing "France Surrenders" type of positngs. a couple of you have not dissapointed me, but it seems this is a weiners and boobies thread. guess i'll have to eat my pickle elsewhere. or something.
2002-05-03 05:15:25 PM  
"they did get rather good at fighting"

once they got over the shock of discovering an english peasant with a long bow could pop off their lords in their fancy heavy armour from several hundred paces you mean
2002-05-03 05:16:11 PM  
lick my boobies you weener?

France sucks. I hope this nazi does get elected so we can stomp in there and kick some french ass.
2002-05-03 05:16:54 PM  
What a terrible attempt at satire.

I love the review quotes at the top of the page, though...

Apparently Independent thinks that the Brains Trust has "chutzpah." Whatever.

MayoBoy:Isn't Reich a German thing?

Yeah, Reich is a German word, that's part of the joke. You know, with this whole thing with Le Pen (who many people are calling the "French Hitler"), and the fact that France sucked it down hard in WWII despite having what was thought to be the best army around in those days. We've had quite a bit of fun with both of the Vichy government and Le Pen on Fark these last few weeks...

(including "France Surrenders" for Tecknopagan)

French Knight - "aha die you inglesh cowards"
English Peasant - "not as long as I have my trusty longbow"
Dying French Knight - "ARRGH, France Surrenders"
2002-05-03 05:25:56 PM  
Let's not forget that:

1) the French surrendered not once, but several times during the Hundred Years War.

2) The French surrendered to themselves during the French Revolution.

3) The French surrendered to Spanish and British at various times during the Napoleonic Wars.

4) The French surrendered during the war with Prussia.

5) The French surrendered to Hitler during World War II.
2002-05-03 05:27:58 PM  
France is the 4th Reich
The world trembles in fear
U.S. surrenders.
2002-05-03 05:28:13 PM  
6) The French surrendered to the British during the Seven Years War.

7) The French surrendered to the Americans during their spat after the American Revolution.
2002-05-03 05:29:43 PM  
Never surrender ! We will survive : Always someone dumbass to help us :-)
2002-05-03 05:29:44 PM  
How dare the French have a Nationalist Party! Don't they know that the unwashed masses can only be trusted to choose between two similar, overhyped, expensive, ineffective parties, like the randomly labeled, American "Democrat" and "Republican" partys? Who's the man behind the curtain in that country. Somebody is asleep at the wheel. Next thing you know, the will of the common people will determine the shape of the government. God forfend!!

I see you take your facts from The Onion. Don't feel bad, it's standard american education.
2002-05-03 05:36:36 PM  
I think it's good that France elects someone like LePen. We'll see how well he does and end the debate once and for all about Nationalist leaders. We voted our guy down (Buchanan), but the French might give it a try. All the flack we get in the US from European busybodies who tell us to nose out of what isn't our business, you'd think they would let the French decide who they want to lead them. What's more, if other countries are so concerned about the rights of foreigners in France, why don't THEY accept them?
2002-05-03 05:38:23 PM  
I guess the French had Hitler right where they wanted him, before the Americans came in and screwed it all up.
2002-05-03 05:38:47 PM  
"end the debate once and for all about Nationalist leaders" the 21st century as opposed to early/mid-20th century. Different world nowadays, the French suck at just about everything.
2002-05-03 05:38:48 PM  
France also surrendered, or got kicked out of Mexico. You know the Battle of Puebla and the whole cinco de mayo deal is just the mexicans kicking some french ass.
2002-05-03 05:39:58 PM  
I thought Cinco DeMayo was invented by the Jose Cuervo bad.
2002-05-03 05:42:12 PM  

I was talking about WW1.
2002-05-03 05:46:55 PM  
OK, what's the obsession of Fark with France, anyway? I mean, I know a lot of Americans don't like France, but what's the need to always talk about it?
2002-05-03 05:47:46 PM  

1st reich: roman empire
2nd reich: turkish empire (I think)
3rd reich: pipe dream of a german empire
2002-05-03 05:48:33 PM  
We can't talk about Canadians for a while because we bombed them. Someone has to be the punching bag.
2002-05-03 05:49:16 PM  

Beats me. I was never educated to be negatively obsessed with a foreign country, even the US. Different cultures, and all.
2002-05-03 05:49:25 PM  
Not to worry. When Le Pen is slaughtered in the final election, we'll all hear about how wonderful and enlightened the French are.
2002-05-03 05:49:43 PM  
Spookypocket: while I agree that the Democrats and Republicans both suck, you really can't be proposing that some xenophobic asshole bent on returning us to the days of slavery like Buchannan is better? Hey, at least with Bush or Gore, the only thing that separates them is how much we spend on nice new shiny nukes vs how much we spend on welfare. Yeah, it's all a waste of money, but at least those programs aren't necessarilly an evil waste of money.

: The First Reich: The Holy Roman Empire (800/962 - 1806)

2nd: The Second Reich: The German Empire (1871 - 1918)

3rd: Eva Braun's cooter
2002-05-03 05:52:30 PM  
Hoosier: I thought Frederich the Great uniting Germany into one nation and kicking French/Russian/Austrian ass was the Second Reich? I could be wrong about this though...
2002-05-03 05:53:10 PM  
Crotch...Absolutely not. I was simply suggesting that the French might give it a try since they have nothing to lose, really.
2002-05-03 05:53:52 PM  
When did Buchanan ever ask for a return to slavery? Typical whacko attacks from no nothing tools. What's wrong, can't accept a pollitician who has not changed his views on a single issue in the last 20 years? You must prefer the brainless puppets who change their minds every day like changing underwear. Tool.
2002-05-03 05:53:53 PM  
lol MayoBoy! I see my version of the Second Reich is a bit earlier than yours, I think I'll change my answer to what you have. Bismark, not Frederich...
