17 year old french lass named Gisele and is not hot? How can that be?

There's a picture of her with the article. I'd have farked her until she gave up Ann Frank.

Arthur Jumbles: Did Gisele also introduce Doug to her son who is also his half-brother, Philip?

Yeah, that's what I was thinking: "I think your dad thanked her plenty"

A French family did the same thing for my grandfather. We are still in touch with them, as well. They would have been executed or sent to the concentration camps if they had been caught helping an Allied airman. I think of that whenever some redneck know-nothing makes a joke about the French being cowards.

Oh, and I made a movie about it.
