The French have been irrelevent since Dien Bien Phu. The have been obnoxious far longer than that.

SavageT, BigBill and 45Colt - Right on. 45, your comment about the French being irrelevant since Dien Bien Phu is just so incredibly accurate. I recall all those French expatriates sipping their coffee or liquers in the Saigon hotels and pizzin' all over us whenever we would get hit hard. The truth is though and you are so right, that they are irrelevant. What else do they have to do.

Their water is no good. Their wine is bitter. They can't cook chickuns to save their bass, even in Brest. They can't design an effective defensive perimeter, they can't shoot, they don't speak English, they don't bathe, their womens smell like a Sasquatch, they make funny lookin' guns in weird calibers, their cars are funny looking and they are like perpetual little brothers. If they didn't do it themselves the first time they always either pizz all over you or want what you've got. I think we've been too kind to them. Let's taunt their ancestry. This be Mikey.
