The pros and cons of the French

French maids? Pro surely...
I'll admit some of the French ladies can be quite tasty. And the accent serves them well. However, the accent on the men and the sheer indignation I feel knowing that they are French greatly outways any attraction to the French females.

Remember, there are plenty of other countries out there with pretty ladies with silly accents. If France were to dissappear, would you even notice?
the Pros are the women.............. the Cons are the men.
Pro: A country to dislike not trust and take the piss out of.
Con: Those feckin breakfasts. I want a fry up, i get some bread cheese and ham ffs.
And their lager is always flat.

Pro: They are so disliked that they take some of the heat off us. Even the Septics can't stand the yellow backed, hairy, soap-dodging tossers.

Con: Where do I start. Oh, I know - the French, The French and, ummmmm - The French.
If anyone has the misfortune to go to France and gets involved in a dispute with one of the locals, could you test out the following phrase:

"Je croix que votre grand-pere n'etait pas vraiment dans la Resistance, si?
("I don't truly believe that your grandfather was a member of the Resistance, is that right?")

And let me know how you got on. :twisted:
We are colonizing vast portions of the place. Is that a pro or a con do you think?

And if the French are so sophisticated, why do they keep flogging us ripe-for-renovation gites for bugger-all and prefer to live in Gallic Bovis Homes?

Before you completely write off the French, look at this.
(takes a little time to load, but worth it)
As the owner of a rather elderly Renault, I can definitely say that we should reprise the Hundred year War, but with this time the atrocity knob turned up to 11.
I feel that we were a bit touchy-feely last ime...
Pro - Excellent road surfaces on the Autoroutes (even if you do have to pay for them)

Con - Everything else

Pro: That Alize bird from that video, cute, pretty, and i think only teens!

Con: The French Population, especially those who pretend not to speak English when they speak better English than the Chavs on the estate


Pros - the surf on the Atlantc coast especially Biarritz and Arcachon, people don't look at you funny if you drink all day long and think that wine is the perfect mid morning beverage. pate, cheese, french bread ( or just bread if you're french). I like France.

Cons- last time I was there, it was full of English people, making no attempt whatsoever to even try and speak French "Uh, dur beers please mate"
