Why I Love and Hate France

October 3rd, 2003, 10:40 am

This space will be reserved for a pending essay on...well...you know...exactly.Basically, I philosophically agree with Chirac. Fuk the U.S. Let's have a world in which the U.S. has to compete for attention, money, power, and influence with several other viable foes. Of course, the second most powerful foe would be the Franco-centric Euro world in which money doesn't mean squat compared with extended-feather dignity and (wink-wink) highly developed mores. The outline, not presented in order of importance, of the pending drivel will be as follows:1. Why France has a Latin-centric inferiority complex vis-a-vis the northern, Protestant, capitalism-orientated alliance.2. The allegories of Monte Python's Holy Grail ("I'll blow a fart in your general direction") with the unbalanced Anglophone hatred for the French.3. France is like a misunderstood Wilmott board member.4. French taxi drivers don't care about money, and other oddities....or, "It is a privilege to start a business in France".5. Ok, so I can drink at 7AM and nobody will care, but, really.....6. Why won't this biatch go to bed with me? She think her sheah don't stink or what?7. Fat content in French food and the conundrum of the archetypically lithe French body.8. The Germans are their real enemy, they know this, the Germans know this, BUT, why, in the name of GOD, don't the British know this?9. Let me precise you a question, let's take a decision, and other peculiarities of the French language.10. We saved your ass in WWII, and other bagatelles that piss the living Fois Gras out of them.Now, having given an elliptical outline of the pending essay, I must say that I am too tired to fill in the details. Would you mind contributing?
