Well...I have not been to France but I have eaten escargot and frog legs...I liked them both...although I wouldn't eat snails and frog legs on a regular basis they are fine to have once in a blue moon...


I have been to France and eaten both these dishes while there and also in other places: lets just say leave it to the french to cook their food best - it was very nice.

What was far more funny (perhaps due to me being 12 at the time) once when i was having dinner on the Seine river; was watching my mothers face as her "head of veal" arrived. It was a brain on a steak. Oh how me and my father laughed as she recoiled in horror. We ate her dinner that night and it was nice, tho i didnt go for any the brain myself, snails and frogs legs are one thing but a squishy steamed calfs brain - that i 'wussed' out on

Which city/town did you go to and i will "try" and explain why you had such a crap time?

McDonalds .. in France ... Near Basel. Fanciest McDonalds I've ever seen.
It was like a museum. Here, they are greasy fast food dumps. Over there?? It was fancy.

We were in East part of France. Around the city of Basel (where the three countries come together). It wasn't a 'crappy time'. It was fine. It was just noticeable that Switzerland and Germany were much nicer than France. Cleaner. Better kept up. And Lichtenstein was even nicer than Switzerland and Germany. I swear those people must actually sweep the forest floors or something. It was like a cartoon ... not even a leaf on the ground.

France left me cold.
Switzerland was nice and it was FUN. The people were cheery.
Germany had good food. Although I admit seeing those iron eagles on the border were intimidating.
Lichtenstein had great beer and fantastic strudel and was spotless.
The people in Lichtenstein were amazingly nice.

The only reason snails taste good is because they are drenched in garlic butter. Put enough of that on anything and it would taste nice, even a slug or any other garden pest.

The French have never won a war! Everything else rumored about them is too cover up this weakness.

As for the rest and in answer to the OP. I can joke about stereotypical traits but I have never met a stereotypical anyone. I take everyone as a person first, the rest just follows along like a baggage train.

Well i would definately give the snails and frogs legs a go. I want mine a bit more cooked though lol. The french who i have met did tend to be a bit pongy!!. But if i was over there im sure i would be to. I just love garlic, Those snails look quite good actually, I have never tried them but i would have a slerp with ya!..And wine is great. It always messes with my head the day after . But i will help polish off a few bottles. And me being an international style guru (cough cough) Im sure i would fit in society quite easily


...Also i salute france for the following....
Brigitte Bardot...

Laetitia Casta
Virginie Ledoyen
Zinedine Zidane

But of course the greatest thing ever to come out of france
....Renee Allo Allo

What did the French do to piddle you off Butch?

Not too much. I didn't appreciate their attitude. I can speak some French and thought that might make things a bit easier, but they seem to look down their nose at all tourists.

I have never tried either of them, but they don't really sound bad.

I'll eat anything once, maybe twice if I like it.


And if I really liked it I would be out chasing the little buggers around all day...

Or should I say regugitated
You may keep them.

I should have known when Mrs R and R junior politely refused them


Frogs legs now that's another matter

I will agree that the French can be brave and fight very well. Perhaps they are led poorly!

But why should this be a trait. Perhaps they select Generals based on perceived sexual performance rather than military performance. Or as an author once put it, 'The French are always fighting the current war with tactics learned in the last war.' I think that just about sums it up pretty well.

Hmmm. It would appear that she has developed a wrinkle.

I am having trouble figuring out where it begins and ends though.

From the last time i was watching the news and where i am living, the French were not led my generals???... They might be lead poorly... depend on which political person each and every French person votes for i guess?

Hehe, this is why i asked for stereotypical comments...(your comment is pertinent, well respected and of much appreciated...!) Have you ever been to France and lived as the French do??


I have never lived in the USA (spent a couple of weeks there and the only thing i had (have) to say, is... Wow, would i like to know this (their) culture better!? (Only spent 3 weeks in San Diego as a tourist) so will, and cannot comment out of respect and pure common sense...)

Kindest respects
