I swiped this from another message board:

I suppose the French have decided that the success of the U.S. Army's video game is worth emulating so they have released a video game for their own citizenry.



Excerpt from the game description:

"Zees is a great tool to inspire ze patriotism in ze youths, n?est ce pas?" said General Jean-Jacques Loseur, Commander-in-Chief of the French Army, during his weekly press conference. "Since ze end of ze Cold War we French have not had many opportunities to surrender or to show great cowardice in the face of much weaker opponents."

    I think it's a very good thing that powerdoc is on vacation right now.

    He's stuck on the Second level, he went on vacation to pay full attention to surrendering with all due speed.

    good stuff. I like to make fun of the French, especially their seeming lack of drive.



    The inital reports to Rome about the Gallic tribes translates into something like the following: "In Gaul lie an agreeable and artistic people with little will to fight or rise up."



    I'm dead serious. I've read it in Latin and english. (several years ago.) Old traditions die hard.



    And yes, the French culture has good attributes too.

    Gotta say one thing about the French...



    They may not win a lot of wars, but they sure as hell know how to put on a parade...!

    That sounds like a bad German interpretation not French.

    And this one time, when I was at Vacation Bible Camp, there was this girl, and she challenged this guy to an arm-wrestling match, and then the guy, cuz he was all skinny, he ran away, and so the girl, she won without there even being a match.



    And then this one time...at band camp...
