Interesting - when someone insults Americans - someome else gets upset. - when someone insults Canadians - someome else gets upset. - when someone insults Brits - someome else gets upset.

Yet when someone insults the French . . .

Begs the question: What came first the annoying French or jokes about how annoying the French are?

Ah the French - every Englishman's natural enemy!
You have to feel sorry for the poor buggers, though. With only two per cent of the world's web-sites in French, they're all having to learn English in a hurry, which is causing the language police all kinds of conniptions.
No wonder that among the wonderful things they've given the rest of civilisation (letters, kisses, polish...) is the word chauvinism.

If you say Je parler, you won't need the rest, they'll know it. It's "Je parle..." An online dictionary says vache is feminine. I think we have it now as: "Je parle francais comme une vache espanole." Maybe it's funnier to the French if the grammar is all wrong.

Very funny Margo! I enjoyed that. Maybe after the first time your cat learned that he enjoyed the enema and held it in, but when you tried to do it yourself it wasn't as much fun so he stopped holding it. ???? ;-)

I like the sick mule idea. When I go to Paris, I'll try it.

I have absolutely no interest in the Florida incidents. I hate degredation of humanity.

Q: How many Florida voters does it take to change a light bulb?

A. In a split decision, the United States Supreme Court has directed that all counting of the number of persons involved in such activity be halted at once. At issue were the lack of standards to strictly define what constituted help, as well as a minority opinion as to the problems of identifying who was a valid voter. The point was ruled as moot as the bulb had already been screwed. Repeatedly.

Blackcatter, I was kind of hoping other people would have ideas about how many FL voters it takes to change a light bulb. It could be "One...no, wait - 17. No, it's 3..." Or "3, but 2 of them didn't screw it in all the way, so we're only counting the one that did." There's gotta be more. (Although I realize people may be sick of this subject.)

Regarding your first paragraph - no argument. Florida was the one caught in the spotlight, but the situation has sure made me wonder about what sort of things happen elsewhere that we haven't heard about because they weren't big enough stories for TV.

You want to know the sad thing about the whole voting issues in Florida - it all came to light for just two reasons - We have a lot of electoral votes and we just happened to be very, very close in the vote. I'd be willing to bet that it could have happened to a bunch of other states as well. The good news is that Florida will probably lead the way in modernizing the voting process - at least in the counties that are not run by mindless rednecks.

By the way, we love Canadians down here - they encourage us to look closely at our change when it is given to us at a store - we don't want to be stuck with the worthless stuff from north of the border (that's Canada, not Georgia).

We love the Brits too - though we wish they'd learn about sunscreen BEFORE they turn into silly looking lobsters.

The Irish - Love em! but why do they seem to gravitate to the few Irish pubs and want to drink bottled Michelob?

But then there's all the other nationalities we've dealt with in Tourism Central. I could go on - but that isn't what the tread is all about . . .

I would never insult my Canadian friends and add to their misery. They already have to live there. Canada is nowhere near as fun-filled as the US...

It doesn't make them insane, but by God it makes some of them pretty darn stupid! Doug & Bob McKenzie were the prototypical dumb young Canadian men (remember the "Great White North"?), with their toques, their 26-word vocabulary, and their beer. Nothing has changed much, except that instead of toques, they now wear baseball caps backwards! Yuck!

As for Detroit, the reasons why we did not keep it are so obvious that I don't really think I need to list them. Detroit is hell on Earth.

Little Hawk, from what I understand, the west coast of Canada is already owned by the Japanese and Chinese so maybe your prediction is accurate at that!
Annamill, I've been told that the places to go in France are Normandy, Brittany, and the South of France. If you can speak a little French they are friendly. The people of Paris have MAJOR attitude.
The "I speak French like a sick mule" idea sounds a winner tho.

Actually, WE had Patton in 1812...he was a redcoat commander called General Isaac Brock then!!! And he kicked Yankee ass at the battle of Queenston Heights, I believe it was (near Niagara Falls, Canadian side)...and unfortunately got killed in the process, while repelling an American invasion of our beloved Canada. He liked war so much that he just had to come back again as George Patton and work his way up to General, serving in no less than 2 world wars, this time for the USA, which gave him more scope for fighting than would a small power like Canada. That time he managed to live past the 2nd war's end...just barely...and died from injuries sustained in a traffic accident. He is now reincarnated as...are you ready???...a Chinese general!!! So watch it, you imperialist running dog suckers! You ain't seen nothin' yet... You're all gonna be talkin' Mandarin and Cantonese in another generation from now.

Ha! Windsor wouldn't even exist if it weren't Detroit's suburb.

And 2 wrongs don't make a right. Victoria, BC dumps RAW sewage into the Strait of Juan de Fuca, which drifts down and causes shellfish poisoning in Puget Sound. We may have acres of clams, but you're licking a Canadian's ass if you eat one.

Yeah, just buy your cows from England instead of from us. Don't blame us if you all die of BSV though.
