France has food that America dreams of and had the immense common sense to avoid stupid American foreign adventures unlike the UK.

We have their food. It's not protected intellectual property.

I doubt a self-respecting Frenchman would eat American-style "French" fries if that's what you're referring to.

That's because they're self-absorbed, arrogant jackasses. That much should be obvious by now

I have a policy of pointing out whenever a thread or post is bigoted and so I'm doing so now, but I refuse to believe this is serious.

"FREEDOM" fries, my friend, "FREEDOM" fries. We don't call them "French" fries anymore.

Besides, are you telling me that poutine is strictly a Canadian "delicacy", and that the French have nothing to do with that food abortion? It started in Quebec, which is nothing more than a holding cell for arrogant Frenchies stuck on the wrong side of the pond. If you can convince me that poutine isn't a French food, then maybe the rest of their cuisine can get a pass, but until then, that single dish makes the entire French cuisine worse than all Brittish food combined!

Because the people there take the worst attributes of anybody they see or hear about in another country and blow it up into a sweeping indictment of the entire country. Those fuckers.

That was because they hated the British. Self serving, cheese eating, bad porn making jackasses.

I have seen all cities of France and eaten in nearly all of them. I had to go to Calgary to eat poutine. Food abortion indeed.

Poutine is the only redeeming part of French cuisine.


Says the guy who lives entirely way too close to Canada.

(Of course, I can actually SEE Canada on a clear day from my office window, but that's not important right now...)

Poutine would be great if it weren't for the curds and gravy.

Yeah, but the original article really seems so. It's not very funny, but then the most popular article on the site is "The Twilight Of The Tortilla: What People Really Order At Chipotle" so I really don't know what to think.

Let's not be silly now.


You won't know it's silly until you try. Because I am sure you never did.

What in what you quote even remotely suggests that?

We repaid them by liberating them from Germany.

I'd rather have the two of them. But in between that will have to do.

Apparently it's not just the Anglo-Saxons who dislike the French- from what I've heard the Germans and Spanish are not enormously keen on our Gallic brethren either.

Although having said that they find Americans even more irritating.
