I disagree with the "by stench" one, because the French have enough body odor to combat any conquerer, they just don't realize it yet.

Holly: Jean Paul Sartre said hell was being locked forever in a room with your friends.

Lister: Holly, all his mates were French.

Is this the source of the "France surrenders" joke? If not, could someone please enlighten me?

No, the source of the "France surrenders" joke is decades old at the least because they are well known for surrendering. The joke didn't start here.

hmmm, Roche : Do I detect a 'Red Dwarf' reference there?

So when is it appropriate to insist that France has once again surrendered?

The trues source of France Surrenders, methinks was when there was a day with two articles(i think it was february 2001 or something) that had france actually surrendering... one during british-french co-training and one dealt with bullfrogs...or something...i feel old

Groman: Perhaps that began it here on Fark, but the rest of the world has been making that joke for a long time, and is probably why it was even mentioned here in regards to the articles you refer to in the first place.

Well, for starts, when was the last time that France has won a war on its own, or hasn't needed bailing out. Even The Onion points this out so well in the "Our Dumb Century" book.
