The French

Mr Rude (Left)

This story really says all you need to know about the French. The Mr Men are back with an addition, Mr Rude who speaks with a French accent. It seems that he will encourage children to pull his finger which will make him break wind. The French embassy don't think it will help Anglo-French relations. But then again the fact that France exists doesn't help Anglo-French relations.

Which reminds me of this schoolboy howler:

Q. Why did de Gaulle have Greek letters on his cap?
A. Because he would have looked stupid with French letters on it.

to quote Edmund Blackadder; "We hate the French! We fight wars against the French! Did all those men die in vain on the fields of Agincourt? Was the man who burned Joan of Arc just wasting good matches?"

And another one:

Q. How many Frenchmen does it take to change a lightbulb?
A. One-he just holds the bulb and the world revolves around him.

I love the Blackadder quote.
