    Default The French don't hate us ... they hate themselves!

    French Snobbery Directed at ... the French
    We had it wrong all along. The French don't hate us ... they hate themselves!

    According to an opinion poll published Friday, the French dislike themselves even more than Americans dislike them, Reuters reported.

    The survey of six nations, carried out for the International Herald Tribune daily and France 24 TV station, said 44 percent of French people thought badly of themselves against 38 percent of U.S. respondents who had a negative view of the French.

    Only 14 percent of Germans, 25 percent of Italians, 29 percent of Spaniards and 33 percent of Britons had a negative view of the French, according to the Harris/Novatris poll, which questioned more than 1,000 people in each country.

    Looked at from another perspective, the Germans have the highest regard for their neighbors, with 73 percent saying they had a positive view of the French.

    By contrast, some 63 percent of Italians had a positive view of the French, 54 percent of Spaniards, 51 percent of French, 41 percent of Britons and just 35 percent of Americans.

    Relations between France and the United States plunged following Paris' fierce opposition to the U.S.-led war in Iraq.

    Thursday's poll said 74 percent of Americans said whoever wins the second round of France's presidential election on May 6 should try to improve relations with the United States.

    Some 41 percent of French agreed, but 20 percent believed Paris should be even more distant with Washington.

    Default That's really too damn bad...

    ... cause French woman are seriously hot.

    You cannot find a French fat chick. No kidding. They smoke too much and walk everywhere.

    And most of them are FREAKS. Very kinky.

    Which makes them perfect little hoo-wers.

    La vie longue les prostituées Francaises!

    Yeah, they're positive they almost owned that choice property back in '44.



    I'm kidding, I got no beef with entire nations anymore.
