Kinda like shooting fish in a barrel though is it not?
Hell I am a New Zealander by birth and still hold some residual grudges for an act of French Terrorism on NZ soil (yeah ok in a harbour - they bombed a ship). Not that support the people whose boat they blew up, but I object to their methods.

The fark.com forums are a festering shithole and anyone who posts there voluntarily is a worthless human being.


Hoo boy. More French-bashing. How utterly original.

Just the fora?

…and their damn fries make me fat.

Hmmm…now why would someone end their post with “Flame away?” Just baffling.

When come back, bring pie.

OK, what is with all of the damn French-bashing on the Internet? I’ve never heard anything remotely like it in real life, despite having known plenty of right-wing froot loops in my time. Are there huge numbers of closet Francophobes who only indulge in their proclivities while online, or do I just lead a much more sheltered life than I thought?

I’m no Francophobe.

I know lots of guys named Frank, and I’m not scared of any of them.

Except the one who’s always mumbling to himself and named his knives.

You’ve just been lucky - if you come to my office any given day, you’ll hear my co-worker, the self-appointed political aficionado, spewing all kinds of anti-France venom.

how long would this thread remain civilized if those jokes were about black people or gays?

It does seem a like a fair few Americans were sitting around waiting for the French to do something even vaguely anti-american.

“At Last” they cry “Now we can break out our extremely poor, xenophobic jokes and display our pitiful knowledge of european History. And All in the name of the U.S.A.! GO USA! GO USA!”

At least that’s how I picture it.

I dunno. Let’s find out.

What color is the American flag? Red, White, and Blue.
What color is the British flag? Red, White, and Blue.
What color is the Gay flag? Pink.

Q: Why don’t they have fireworks in Bedford-Stuyvesant?
A: Because every time they shoot them off, the Black people dance really cool.

Neeps and tatties must be low in vitamin A.

Ukelele Ike, your espousal of festering stereotypes does you no credit, sir, and in fact inspires universal revulsion.

I think he was being satirical, but I don’t think it worked.

I’d say it worked just fine.

sorry Jack, but a “relating example”, regardless of sarcasm, is a perfectly cromulent of displaying the fault of a statement.

Try again in fucking English.
