There was a Frenchman, an Englishman and beautiful young woman sitting
together in a carriage in a train going through a French Provence.
Suddenly the train went through a tunnel and, as it was an old style
train, there were no lights in the carriages and it went completely
dark. Suddenly there was a kissing noise and the sound of a really
loud slap. When the train came out of the tunnel the woman and the
Englisman were sitting as if nothing had happened and the Frenchman
had his hand against his face where he had been slapped. The Frenchman
was thinking: \'The English fella must have kissed her and she missed
him and slapped me instead.'The woman was thinking: \'The French fella
must have tried to kiss me and actually kissed the Englishman and got
slapped for it.'And the Englishman was thinking: \'This is great. The
next time the train goes through a tunnel I\'ll make another kissing
noise and slap that French ******* again.\'
Next time there\'s a war in Europe, the loser has to keep France.
An old saying:
Raise your right hand if you like the French....
Raise both hands if you are French.
\"You know why the French don\'t want to bomb Saddam Hussein?
Because he hates America, he loves mistresses and wears a beret.
He is French, people.\"
\"I don\'t know why people are surprised that France won\'t help us
get Saddam out of Iraq. After all, France wouldn\'t help us
get the Germans out of France!\"
\"The last time the French asked for \'more proof'it came
marching into Paris under a German flag.\"

How many Frenchmen does it take to change a light bulb?
One. He holds the bulb and all of Europe revolves around him.
Still, it\'s essential for them to join us in the war against Iraq.
They can teach the Iraqis how to surrender.
How many Frenchmen does it take to defend Paris? No one knows. It\'s
never been tried.
What do you call 100,000 Frenchmen with their hands up?
-The French Army.
How many gears does a French tank have? Five, four in reverse and one

Dennis Miller specializes in anti-French humor. \"The only way the
French are going in is if we tell them we found truffles in Iraq,\"
\"The French are always reticent to surrender to the wishes of their
friends and always more than willing to surrender to the wishes of
That last one is more than a joke. It\'s shrewd commentary. It captures
why the French make such poor allies. When they pulled out of NATO 40
years ago and declared Americans must close down their bases in
France, Secretary of State Dean Rusk had a bitterly caustic response.
Should we dig up the graves of American soldiers in Normandy, too, and
take them home? No French answer was recorded.
They have recently answered the question, however. They said \"dig them
up and take them out. We need room for golf courses !\"
\"You can always count on the French to be there when they need us!
