Well, somebody had to say it
 
2004-01-22 09:41:46 AM
for that comment, the next time he's in Paris he's going to get more spit than usual in his onion soup.
 
2004-01-22 09:55:12 AM
Well, in all fairness he agrees he's annoying too. And don't you dare diss onion soup. Onion soup is your friend.

But are they more annoying than George W?
 
2004-01-22 11:03:31 AM
Maybe he could take them gifts as an apology....

Deoderant and Gillette Mach # Turbo's would be my suggestion
 
2004-01-22 11:29:22 AM
And did they surrender after such an insult?
 
2004-01-22 11:52:50 AM
Minoridiot, that are unpossible.
 
2004-01-22 12:18:20 PM
I say it all the time, nobody here cares.
 
2004-01-22 12:41:38 PM
Colin Powell is annoying for the mere fact that he pronounces his first name as Colon.
WTF???
 
2004-01-22 12:43:51 PM
the wife did the junior year in france thing. she said the frogs spent even more time smoking and drinking coffee in cafes that she did as a part-time college student.

so maybe they're just a nation suffering from nicotine and caffeine shakes. that would explain the annoying and the inability to hold things without dropping them, like rifles.

It's that delightful combination of body odor, excess hair and frogleg breath that make the French such an interesting people. Really, without them who would the third world countries have to look down on?
 
2004-01-22 01:52:24 PM
So do I.
 
2004-01-22 02:20:24 PM
maudit americain
 
2004-01-22 02:20:58 PM
French reply 'Colin Powell is a lying, warmongering prick who can't pronounce his name properly.'
 
2004-01-22 02:21:20 PM
I wish that honkey would keep his mouth shut!

2004-01-22 02:21:22 PM
By gosh, he's right!
 
2004-01-22 02:21:26 PM
I'm sure the feeling is mutual.

Can't...stop...giggling...

Opposing our plans for worlddomination huh?
Annoying french ppl!!
 
2004-01-22 02:22:21 PM
"There are two things I cant stand in this world. Intolerance of other peoples culture, and the French."

-said Powell or Nigel Powers.
 
2004-01-22 02:22:28 PM
Try livin' with them in your own country

 
2004-01-22 02:23:40 PM
Ribbit.
 
2004-01-22 02:24:07 PM
You don't need a permission slip to hate on the French!
 
2004-01-22 02:24:33 PM
You know, the French may be stinky, and they may be stuck up, and they may even be cowardly, but who wants to kiss any other way? ;)
 
2004-01-22 02:24:36 PM

Le Franais peut tre ennuyant, mais j'aime observer les films qu'ils eteignent, parce que le sexe est si graphique dans eux. J'aime en particulier Betty Bleu ; Beatrice Dalle est une femme chaude.


Je ne sais pas.

 
2004-01-22 02:24:51 PM
The french are annoying, but at least they are not the ones demanding bilingual everything. Can you imagine the reaction if the french did that?
 
2004-01-22 02:25:27 PM
Damn liberal media again...oh, wait...

This should have been a point-counterpoint piece, the counterpoint being "Johnny Depp: Nuh-Uh, The French Are Neat!". You know, just to make this absurdly pointless article to a further extreme.
 
2004-01-22 02:26:28 PM
The poor French, I think they just need to get laid. And by a woman this time.

/or is it just me?
 
2004-01-22 02:26:45 PM
Now all we got to do is, be sure bout WMD
 
2004-01-22 02:26:51 PM
Annoy a Colin?

Isn't that called irritable bowel syndrom?
 
2004-01-22 02:26:55 PM
Did anyone see John McCain on The Daily Show last night totally ripping on Bush?

That was awesome.

But it's so much easier to teach everyone 2 languages than to just teach the minority in question 1.

"Bastille". It's French for "Why are you stabbing me? I just released you from prison!"

/Daily Show

2004-01-22 02:29:05 PM
You know, now that he mentions it, They ARE annoying!.
hmmm. Go figure.

The man has a point.
 
2004-01-22 02:29:26 PM
Well, I think Colin Powell's annoying. So there.
 
2004-01-22 02:29:38 PM
I wonder where Colon went to diplomacy school? Nothing is said in confidence anymore, and certainly ANY negative comment from such a high administration person about a foreign country is going to make the rounds. How can a comment like this help? Especially when the U.S. is asking for the UN to help with elections in Iraq. Put the bravado in check, and if you can't say anything positive, STFU. Let the diplomats do the work they're trained for.
 
2004-01-22 02:29:41 PM
Colin: "Sometimes they annoy me, sometimes I annoy them."

Of course. Why is this "news?"
 
2004-01-22 02:29:45 PM
Wow, two references to The Daily Show in one thread. Awesome
 
2004-01-22 02:30:38 PM
Remember when the french tongue was the lingua franca?
 
2004-01-22 02:30:55 PM
I hope Brett Farve will be able to play this Sunday in spite of this...

Mon pays comprise Quebec.

American comments in this thread regarding Quebec and bilingualism only highlight the posters' ignorance on the subject.

I did and it made me weep. Smart, command of the English language, good sense of humor and a natural delivery. Is it too much to ask for a President that you can admire? Farking Karl Rove should burn in hell.

How so BWF?
 
2004-01-22 02:34:35 PM
Yeah, sweet diplomacy.
 
2004-01-22 02:35:02 PM
He forget to mention rude and stinky.
 
2004-01-22 02:35:18 PM
Good use of the obvious tag
 
2004-01-22 02:35:20 PM
How dare France put the good of their own nation above the good of the United States!
 
2004-01-22 02:35:35 PM
Damn, I wish I had seen McCain...I always mean to watch the Daily Show but usually manage to miss it for some reason.
 
2004-01-22 02:35:51 PM
Isn't that the black calling the kettle a pot?
