See, that's what I like about the French--so willing to ask questions!

Ok--a Korean style kiss is...spicy

Who said that all Americans hated the French? I think the French are a bit goofy and snooty, but do I hate them? Not at all...hell, I'm part French.

I think the cheesesteak thing also shows it...the French like crappy food. ;-)

Thanks, elti69, for reinforcing the stereotype. SIGH.
Look, we all know the French eat plenty of disgusting shit so come off it. At least be honest. And saying all American food is fried or tasteless seems a bit prejudicial to say the least. What about Krispy Kreme's, hmmmmm? Ever hear of those?*

(*this is sarcasm, elti. sarcasm--I'm making a joke you snooty, contrary twit.)

Now see, there you go with your broad generalizations again. And you wonder why a lot of Americans dislike the French?

well It might be disgusting for your eyes but I HIGLY doubt you guys have ever tasted Snails, or even frog legs... Which I might say are DELICIOUS if well prepared... it sounds pretty disgusting I admit but it is really good... Now don't tak this the wrong way... we do not eat snails or frog legs every day... it's a celebration meal...
as far as the regular food goes we have got some pretty nice things you'd love... Saucisson,croissant, pain au chocolat, Baguette, all kinds of cheese (not tasteless like the BRIE or Cheddar you guys know about) etc...
when I said tasteless I mean everything in the USA has to be purified, aspetisied, etc... You cant make good cheese with pasturized milk...

As far as Krispy Kreme's go... I have never tasted them... they're donuts rights?

Frog legs and snails are not that freaky a food here, we do eat them--at least, some American's eat them (American's who aren't afraid of eating monster parts, anyway.) All my cousins on the East Coast eat all that shit and more. If it's slimey and gross, they're into it. Of course croissants and baguettes and all that is delicious. I can't say I've ever had French made cheese, but I have had Irish Cheddar and some other very good cheeses. Just because we have more McDonalds than any other land does not mean we all eat there.

And, besides. We saved your butt from the Germans. So there.

Oh, yeah, Krispy Kreme's are indeed but I think they are uber-gross. I like a I can dunk in my Krispy Kreme's just melt into goo.

Major General Marquis De Lafayette? No, I hadn't heard of him--I just Google'd him now. Thanks for the history lesson!

Never had French-made cheese? That's just ridiculous, and I refuse to believe it.
