GUEST,The O'Meara BS: Vive La France (107* d) RE: BS: Vive La France 06 Mar 03


(Sorry 'bout that, the Devil made me hit the wrong button.)

There's nothing wrong with humor pointed at a particular group so long as its not malicious, and you say "Bless their hearts" Examples:

1. For 200 years, the Canadians (Bless their hearts,) have been exposed to American technology, French culture and British politics. In that time they have managed to assimilate British technology, French politics and American culture.

2. The British Isles contain four major cultures, (Bless their hearts,) : the Welsh, who pray on their knees (and their neighbors,) The Scots, who keep the Sabbath, (and anything else they can get their hands on,) the Irish, who don't know what they want (but will fight to the death to get it) and the English, who claim to be a self-made people, (thus relieving the Diety of a terrible guilt).

OK now, the trouble is figuring out who, exactly, was slighted and if it was malicious or not.

A generally reliable source, (Willie, the Scottish groundskeeper on The Simpsons,) Refers to the French as "Cheese-eating surrender monkeys!" So there you have it.
