Just wondering, do the French have a sense of humor?

Jump to last reply

I am not trying to be a smart aleck. Honest. I love flying to new places and finding the mutual funny bone. One of the most humorous of people I have found, are the Japanese. They love to laugh. And seem to love silly stuff. It is such a special moment, IMO, to share a good laugh with a stranger...they are a stranger no more, IMO.

I don't hear much about the French having a funny bone. But, they must have, given all the talk about the French loving Jerry Lewis and all.

I ask because we are going on our first trip to Paris at the end of April. I love to laugh, as does my DH. Is there a funny side to the French that people just don't talk about because there are so many other qualities that they possess?

Hope I am not offending anyone by asking, but I am really curious. I appreciate the politeness and all, but do they like to have a good laugh now and then?
