I got a good laugh out of this! Remember, it is a joke. I love France & the French. (Sorry for the long URL--you have to cut and paste.)

Thanks, QM,

I didn't know that March 1 was

" National Guillotine Day (November 12).."

It's my favorite French holiday. I especially like it when the crowd sings the chorus to "I Ain't Got No Body."

Thanks for the great post and clever web site article! It was hilarious - so tongue in cheek! I laughed so hard - I sent it on to friends for their laughs too. Merci beaucoup!

Thanks for the chuckle, QueenMab!

I'd say there is a grain of truth to a lot of this, except for the French novels, which I think are among the best I've ever read. After all, how can anyone call "The Three Musketeers" or "Madame Bovary" boring? C'est impossible!
