I've heard that gripe about Parisians from numerous French persons. I just smile and comfort them by telling them we Americans know exactly what they mean and we have those sorts of people here, too. In New York City.

So, it's still cool to remind them about saving their ass in the War?

Being an American will piss them off to no end , that and going into a 5star french restaraunt , ordering flawlessly in their langauge, demonstrating an astute culinary knowledge thus impressing the hell out of the maitrede , sommelier. and head chef. When your meal arrives to much fanfare and graciousness of your amazed host , smother everything in ketchup. Then ask for a side of beenieweenies

Acknowledge their invaluable assistance in our Revolutionary War,  tell them proudly, "You made us what we are!" and thank them for their service.

The best way to insult the French is to ask them to say something Belgian to you.

Another option is to spend time in any airport or train station outside of France and to share an eyeroll with a local when you both realize that whiny, complaining person in front of you in the ticket line is, mon dieu, French. Disliking the French seems pretty universal. Parisians do it the best.

That said, I recently spent a week in a tourist-abandoned Brittany. It's charmingly depopulated, and, as the name suggests, not as French as the rest of France. And it's nice to see a European capital unbombed since 1870.

Dahnkster: How many people does it take to defend Paris?
Nobody knows, its never been tried.

What do you call 100,000 Frenchmen with their hands up?
The Army.

What's the difference between Frenchmen and toast?
You can make soldiers out of toast.


Q: Why are all the streets in Paris lined with trees?

A: Because Germans like marching in the shade.

Thank you. I'll be here all week. Don't forget to tip be insulted by your waiter. Try the snails.


Could not resist. France is awesome. Provence is beautiful. French food is the BEST in the world. Paris is magic. No one bakes like the French. It burns when I pee.

timujin: jylcat: Well that was terrible.

Seriously.  Apparently not only are the French easy to piss off, they're not especially engaging writers either.


Cette. Victor Hugo, Dumas Pere, Hell, Dumas Fils, are shaking their heads at the sad state of this article.
