RE: Great quotes
Speaking of France...

"France has neither winter nor summer nor morals. Apart from these drawbacks it is a fine country. France has usually been governed by prostitutes." —Mark Twain

"I would rather have a German division in front of me than a French one behind me." —General George S. Patton

"Going to war without France is like going deer hunting without your accordion." —Norman Schwartzkopf

"We can stand here like the French, or we can do something about it." —Marge Simpson

"The only time France wants us to go to war is when the German Army is sitting in Paris sipping coffee." —Regis Philbin

"The French are a smallish, monkey-looking bunch and not dressed any better, on average, than the citizens of Baltimore. True, you can sit outside in Paris and drink little cups of coffee, but why this is more stylish than sitting inside and drinking large glasses of whiskey I don't know." —P.J O'Rourke (1989)

"I feel as though the camera is almost a kind of voyeur in Mr. Beans life, and you just watch this bizarre man going about his life in the way that he wants to."

-Rowan Atkinson

The last thing I want is someone who's perfect. I like the rough edges, it makes things interesting Big Grin

Well, then, I'm perfect for you. Big Grin

Say what you like about the French -- but their military is about as good as any ever gets. I know a guy who was a photojournalist in Afghanistan - and I've seen pictures of the French troops over there... They look like some serious dudes that I wouldn't want to cross..............

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.
