French is not an international language
Amid all the awfulness of the London terror, the reactions of wetheaded lefties with their blame laid at Blair and Bush et al instead of at the actual murderous fanatics, this has made me about as happy as a clam.
God Bless the DrinkSoakedTrotsForWar and God Bless Mister Shintaro for telling it like it is.
The French cannot count.
And this too that came by email:
The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from Run to Hide. The only two higher levels in France are Surrender and Collaborate.
The rise was precipitated by a recent fire which destroyed France's white flag factory, effectively paralyzing their military.
Ha ha ha. Aaah. Less than 50 words, absolutely perfect.
Narure is balanced when the French are mocked.
And before you send me any Italian jokes I know 'em I know 'em:
Q: How many gears has an Italian tank got?
A: 1 to go forward and 11 to go back.
Q: Is there any point trying to bomb Italy?
A: Nope. It'll just slide right off.
Get it? We're vain and don't like to be hurt and we're greasy too.
Pretty awful, huh? And yet....yet...somehow, the French stuff is objectively funnier.
Now, tapping of short wordage, I am liking Les Nessman very much.
Hope you did your one minute's silence for London. And then hope you felt some cheer cos the world is a shitful place when you ponder on the violent jackasses, but it is a lovely place when you think about how funny it is to mock the French for the fact that they cannot count properly.
Ottanta. See how much better we are?
