Oeuf for God's sake, let the egg puns begin!

I hope the police were scrambled and the egg-stremist was beaten.

And I'll just get this one out of the way:

They only have one egg for breakfast in France.

The motivation behind the incident remains unclear.

Maybe someone thought he was Lyon.

How did the chicken feel after a long day on the farm?

Eggs-hausted!

His bodyguards scrambled into action, and whisked him away.

Since he got out, Hinkley is really losing his edge.

"With France's presidential elections less than a year away, Macron is on a charm offensive with voters. In June, his party performed poorly in regional elections, which were being closely watched ahead the presidential vote next April."

Quick, blame more things on AUKUS!

Gordon Bennett: They only have one egg for breakfast in France.


Guy gets a new job - in some bean-counter's office, so he fancies himself a smart guy. First day, his boss asks him how many eggs he can eat on an empty stomach. Our guy thinks a sec, says "I could probably eat 5 eggs."

"No", his boss says, "you can only eat one. After that, you're not on an empty stomach anymore."

Our guy chuckles to himself - now he's got a bona fide smartguy joke to tell at home. He gets home takes his jacket off, and asks his partner "How many eggs could you eat on an empty stomach?"

His partner thinks for a sec. "I think I could do 4?" they say.

Our guy is crestfallen. "Rats," sez he, "if you'd said 5, I had a great joke for you!"

I'd be Lyon if I said this wasn't kinda' funny...

Wasting food like that isn't very Nice.

The Canadian serial egger went to France and could not resist!

Justin Bieber person of interest?

Weird French fact:  in the singular "oeuf" the F is pronounced, but in the plural "oeufs," neither the F nor the S are pronounced, making it just a vowel sound.

Un oeuf?! Qui vette un oeuf?!

Quick, what's a term that's now ten times as horrifying in the COVID era?

"Macron, like his predecessors, enjoys spending time in meet-and-greets with members of the public. Called 'crowd baths' in French, they have long been a staple of French politics."

All of those were better than subby's headline.

People who laugh at the "France surrenders" joke are grade A morons.

Correct. Because one is un oeuf.

Headline: French President Emmanuel Macron hit by egg thrown from crowd in Lyon

It's not as impressive as it sounds because Macron was also in Lyon.  Now, if he had been in Paris...

I agree.  Stereotypes are too often a symptom of bigotry, and in the case of France, a particularly poor taste joke to boot.  Particularly coming from a country that has a history of abandoning its allies when the going gets tough or simply politically expedient.  Ask the Kurds in Iraq about that...or the Kurds in Syria.  Or the various mountain tribes of Indochina.  France surrendered in WW 2 in the face of the destruction of Paris. Everyone else  had already surrendered  or escaped.  Contrast that to Cameron, Verdun, or dozens and dozens of other  actions.  There will be those that say, well, that's the joke!  Trouble is most of your countrymen now believe the stereotype.  Some joke.  Sorry about the rant, but that one isn't funny in the face of millions of dead French soldiers and military from both World Wars.

Oeuf, le humanité!

Vietnam, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan...
When was the last time the US actually won something instead of just running away? But sure, "France surrenders" smh

My guess is that the headline mocking France for surrendering 80 years ago was written by a citizen of a country that surrendered just last month.
