I know I shouldn't...

But unfortunately it is now second nature for me to take the mickey out of the French….I just can’t help it….

From Dave Barry's 2005 round up....

In sports, Lance Armstrong rides down the Champs-Elysées, raising his arms in a triumphant gesture, which causes the French army to surrender instantly.
No, sorry; that was a cheap shot. One unit held out for nearly an hour.

Abroad, Western nations become increasingly suspicious that Iran is developing nuclear weapons when a giant mushroom cloud rises over the Iranian desert. The Iranian government quickly issues a statement explaining that the cloud was caused by, quote, ''mushrooms.'' As a precautionary measure, France surrenders anyway.

Dave Barry is a very funny writer...I just reviewed a few of the other months.

The French deserve ridicule plus it is fun to rubbish them... LOL

His review of 2004 was actually much better than 2005....worth reading if you can find it...

Couldn't agree more on the French issue!

It does my heart good to know, that no matter how much people hate us "Yanks"...The French are still hated more. :D
