    People hate the French because their language sounds like someone with a ball gag in their mouth and the women don't wash their private parts. Besides that they're OK.

    That sums up my opinion of them. However I would use a capitol 'N' as this is their greatest fame. Actually gutless they are famous for too so go ahead and put a 'G' there. They are anti American because for those two reasons so lets go ahead and capitolize AA (hmm). I agree and that is the best I can say about them.

    now you are on to why people did not like Nazi Germany.

    It was just the sound of the language. :cool:

    well...the worth is that it can be not humour, and you can really think that...

    Do you read sometimes my answers in the thread about "French hate USA" ? it seems like you don't.


    i will take only one things, the rest, about us, sucks, you generalize to a whole population... well, the language :

    personly, I love french, the fact i'm French does a lot for it, sure ;)

    But if it's a such ugly language, why was it the 1st language and the elite's language, during the XVIIIth c. ? why was it the diplomacy language ? (and still now) ? Why does the Vatican write its official papers in French ?


    I think you've nothing against french language, but you have to bash something.

    Anyway, thank Kathianne, interesting article.



    (Can you explain one thing to me ? i've heard about the "French tuesday" in NYC, but i don't really know what is it, I heard it's a party)

    I don't hate the french. I dont think they are worth the effort it takes to hate.

    But honestly I dont know how they can claim they are surprised that people dont like them. I mean the attitudes and the stubborness to oppose everything good for the world isn't exactly condusive to being well liked. I think people just get tired of whining.
