Nicholas Sarkozy-Carla Bruni

#1
I'm not sure if this shouldn't be in
Current Affairs, News and Analysis
but I think that we all have a more meaningful discussion here.
It seems that the French President has kicked The First Lady into touch Daily Telegraph CLICKY
and here is a more balanced view from the Daily Mash CLICKY
Seems a little minx - I can only find this so far

I don't know if you've seen the Luis de Funès "Gendarme" movies, but Sarkozy reminds me strongly of de Funès' character "maréchal des logis chef Ludovic Cruchot". Short, tyrannical, megalomaniac, marries an aristocratic widow "Madame la Colonel". Seeing Sarkozy win the election reminded me of the part where Cruchot is awarded (by mistake) the rank of adjudant-chef: "C'est moi Cruchot! C'est moi! C'est moi!", while gesticulating wildly with both hands pointing at his chest. Sarkozy went to Fouquets to celebrate his victory. For me, Sarkozy is Cruchot, and Carla Bruni is Madame la Colonel.

Whatever else you might say about the Crapauds, you've gotta admire their style.

Mr. Fawlty you think to much. Smart as Carrots, I wonder if you think at all.

Having said all that though, you still have to say "Fcuking good drills, Nico!". Be fair.

Sarkozy is a typical cu'nt struck dwarf with a Napoleon complex. It was Frenchmen like him that prompted us to dig the channel in the first place!

His bird would get it though!

If you're going to cheat on the wife you might as well aim high.

Just think, John Major had Edwina Curry and Nico gets her. There are some good things in France after all.

Whatever sort of cnut he may be - hat of for bagging that eminently shaggable minx. She's got me nailed to the underside of my desk, so she has!

The French leaders have always had mistresses, they can't run the country without them.
They can't fight wars very well either...see below


"France has neither winter nor summer nor morals. Apart from these drawbacks it is a fine country. France has usually been governed by prostitutes." —Mark Twain

"I would rather have a German division in front of me than a French one behind me." —General George S. Patton

"Going to war without France is like going deer hunting without your accordion." —Norman Schwartzkopf

"We can stand here like the French, or we can do something about it." —Marge Simpson

"As far as I'm concerned, war always means failure." —Jacques Chirac, President of France

"As far as France is concerned, you're right." —Rush Limbaugh

"The only time France wants us to go to war is when the German Army is sitting in Paris sipping coffee." —Regis Philbin

"The French are a smallish, monkey-looking bunch and not dressed any better, on average, than the citizens of Baltimore. True, you can sit outside in Paris and drink little cups of coffee, but why this is more stylish than sitting inside and drinking large glasses of whiskey I don't know." —P.J O'Rourke (1989)

"You know, the French remind me a little bit of an aging actress of the 1940s who was still trying to dine out on her looks but doesn't have the face for it." —John McCain, U.S. Senator from Arizona

"They've taken their own precautions against Al Qaeda. To prepare for an attack, each Frenchman is urged to keep duct tape, a white flag, and a three-day supply of mistresses in the house." —Argus Hamilton

"The only way the French are going in is if we tell them we found truffles in Iraq." —Dennis Miller

"I would call the French scumbags, but that, of course, would be a disservice to bags filled with scum. I say we invade Iraq, then invade Chirac." —Dennis Miller

"You know why the French don't want to bomb Saddam Hussein? Because he hates America, he loves mistresses and wears a beret. He IS French, people." —Conan O'Brien

"I don't know why people are surprised that France won't help us get Saddam out of Iraq. After all, France wouldn't help us get the Germans out of France!" —Jay Leno

"The last time the French asked for 'more proof,' it came marching into Paris under a German flag." —David Letterman

How many Frenchmen does it take to change a light bulb?
One. He holds the bulb and all of Europe revolves around him.

An old saying: Raise your right hand if you like the French.... Raise both hands if you are French.

Next time there's a war in Europe, the loser has to keep France.

"The trouble with the French is that they have no word for entrepreneur!" George W Bush jr.

"If you must place your trust in a Frenchman, trust in your sword and put the sword in the Frenchman!" traditional English wisdom.

That's an old picture of Carla Bruni. Today she looks like the Joker from Batman, as someone else has said in another thread. Those American jokes about the French and Iraq don't seem so funny anymore, don't they?

Agree, especially today when the Figaro announces that France is sending 500 troops plus helicopters to aid the refugee operation in Chad.

If its 500 of the Legion I doubt they could have STOPPED them going! Probably not Nico's idea. Can't hold them back.

Ever wondered why there is no 1er Battalion REP? (1st Foreign Legion Para Battalion) = 0 ) quick history test for any history buffs out there?
The putsch - my Froggy neighbour got banged up for it in 1963... :D

There's no regiment called 1er REP, since a REP is a Regiment Etranger Parachutiste.

During the night, the 1st Foreign Parachute Regiment (1e REP), composed of a thousand men (3% of the military present in Algeria) and headed by Hélie Denoix de Saint Marc took control of all of Algiers' strategic points in three hours.
