I take it that most of the "jokes" in this article are being added by proponents of the war in Iraq? humanbe in 13:14, 25 July 2007 (CDT)
Naar! In my case it's just plain dislike of the French. The others are others'. Keepthe faith 13:20, 25 July 2007 (CDT)
I ask because almost all of them are tool-of-Bush crap that floated up in the run up to the Iraq war. And very few are "funny". Now, DeGaulle's "200 cheeses" quote, that be funny. humanbe in 13:25, 25 July 2007 (CDT)
Human I am very disappointed in you. In your haste to point out the "tool-of-Bush crap" you lumped in Cheese eating surrender monkeys. This beautiful line was first said in 1995 by the Simpsons. Jrssr5 14:00, 25 July 2007 (CDT)
But it gained popular use in the run-up to the post 9/11 Iraq war. Of course you are right about the "invention" of the phrase. humanbe in 14:55, 25 July 2007 (CDT)
I must have lived under a rock because I didn't know that until you pointed it out and the evil wikipedia confirmed that. I kinda liked my ignorant bliss thinking it was never bastardized post-9/11. Jrssr5 15:05, 25 July 2007 (CDT)

Did you check for links to "French" and change them? Is it ready for deletion? humanbe in 14:52, 25 July 2007 (CDT)

German words[edit]

Out of curiosity, why is the French army's motto written in German?Stilldeciding (talk) 17:25, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Maybe because they often surrender to germans (or at last are perceveid to be often doing this). Jean 5 5 (talk) 15:28, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

Maybe I'm touchy[edit]

Cause I'm 1 year away from my citizenship, but for heaven's sake, are we done with teh "french suck" jokes around here yet? I mean, based on one war (where by the way, they had just been pummled less than a generation before, by the majority of the war being fought ON their land), we have decided they are "surrender monkeys". which was cute at first, but we have several jokes on that. I get that i'm being touchy in the AM, but for heaven's sake, if it wasn't for the French-English war going on at the time of our own revolution, we'd still be canada. --Pink mowse.pngGodotTue pour toujours, et tu veux vivre aussi. 14:16, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Edgy humor, or puerile wankery?[edit]

What elle qui attend Godot said. I yawn in the general direction of the "humor" on this page, which amounts to hammering a single trope into the ground. Blunt instruments are for smashing rocks, not making people laugh... Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 14:37, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
