This makes it unanimous

I hate me!

Even the French hate the French

UPDATE:  a joke, not from Jeremy Kaye, but from reader Pierre:

Monsieur LaFontange,
Please stop with the French jokes. Yesterday, someone asked me, “Why do the French never perform “the wave” at a soccer game?” Je ne said pas, I responded. “Because,” he said, “that’s a gesture reserved for use only in time of war.”

  2. You can't handle the truth

    The whole (of the soccer) world knew they had qualified for the World Cup by cheating the Irish team (google Hand of Henry).

    That, coupled with several of the players caught paying a 16yr old hooker…..

    The national sense of shame must be embarrassing.

    Honestly, the French people deserved better.

    Karma’s a beaatttccchhhh !!!!

    Exactly! The French team weasled their way into the World Cup by admittedly cheating Ireland out of their rightful place in the tournament. France got what it deserved, good riddance.

    This could start a fun series of comments:

    Why is the Champs-Élysées lined with trees?

    So the Germans can march in the shade!

    The French wave, used only in a time of war, was and is only used when French troops are in full retreat from the usual suspects: the vaunted Wehrmacht and other assorted Goths.

    Where is Charlemagne when you need him?

    The French are there when they need you.

  7. The Word

    Recently saw this on Craigslist:

    FOR SALE: French Army Rifle. Clean, never fired. Dropped once.

    The French, they are a funny race.

    They fight with their feet, and f*#k with their face!
