A Salute To The French

Recommended Posts

An American in Paris

At a French airport...A group of American retired

teachers recently  went to France on a tour. Robert

Whiting, an elderly gentleman of  83, was part of the

tour group. 

At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his

passport  in his carry-on. 

"You have been to France before, monsieur?" the

customs officer  asked sarcastically. 

Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France

previously. "Then you should know enough to have your

passport ready." 

The American said, "The last time I was here, I didn't

have to  show it." 

"Impossible!" barked the officer. "Americans always

have to  show your passports on arrival in France." 

The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard

look.  Then he quietly explained, "Well, when I came

ashore at Omaha  Beach on D-Day in '44 to help

liberate this country, I couldn't find  any Frenchmen

to show it to."

:o:D:D

How soon they forget...

Why Surgeons Love Operating on Frenchmen

Five surgeons are discussing who makes the best patients to operate on.

The first surgeon says, "I like to see accountants on my operating table, because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered,"

The second responds, "Yeah, but you should try electricians.

Everything inside them is color-coded,"

The third surgeon says, "No, I really think librarians are the best; everything inside them is in alphabetical order."

The fourth surgeon chimes in: "You know, I like construction workers.

They always understand when you have a few parts left over at the end and when the job takes longer than you said it would."

But the fifth surgeon, Dr. Morris Fishbein, shuts them all up when he observes: "The French are the easiest to operate on. There's no guts, no heart, no balls and no spine. Plus the head and ass are interchangeable."

Probably should start a new thread -- but since jokes about the French are always semi-serious.........

What's the deal on today's front page of the Bangkok Post about Koh Chang, where 64 Thai sailors were killed in Jan 1941 by a French warship!!?? Obviously Vichy, but had never heard anything about Vichy activity against the Thais -- and wasn't Thailand neutral in Jan '41 (the Jap invasion later forced them to take sides)?

A history lesson would be appreciated (although maybe the joke column isn't appropriate).

here´s the story... I used to live on Koh Chang.

The Battle of Koh Chang

Well, as with any story, it´s ONE re-telling.

"If you are European, put your hand up."

"If you are French, put both hands up."

Why did it take the Germans three days to conquer France? Because it was raining.

It is a fact that the French killed more Germans in Concorde than they did in the whole of WWII.

Dunno. But that one deserves it. :D How many fingers does it take to comprise a French salute ? :D

I've always loved the line in Blackadder III when Steven Fry as Wellington, announces that a certain regiment's insignia is "two crossed dead Frenchmen over a mound of dead Frenchmen".
