A western european country. Also called "The Hexagone" by geometry-deficient journalists. 1000 km x 1000 km in its wider dimensions, but still a kick-ass country. Judge by yourself:

-35 hrs working hours a week, 5 weeks paid holidays a year, and still the 4th economy on the planet.

-main audience (hence funding source) for W. Hallen and D. Lynch movies, among others, thus supporting non-mainstream US movie industry

-full of people who still beleive that democracy mean that the government should be an emanation of People's will (unlike what happens in nowadays in most "democratic" countries,including the US.). But still managed to elect one of the craziest dictator-wanabees ever as president (N. Sarkozy). Crazy French people ;).

-Full of people who drink alcool and/or smoke like crazy, eat fat and tasty dishes, but still have a lower incidence of stroke, obesity, or even cancer, than in most of "civilized" countries.

-A country where oral sex is indeed considered as sex, but where sex is still not considered as a bad thing (this point may explain the upper one ;) )

-A country full of people who have an annoying accent when they speak english. A country full of people who have the sexiest accent ever when they speak english. (depending on the relative genders of the speaker and audience).

-The main reason why the US are now an autonomous country. And they did that only to annoy England. ;)

-The country which likes the most annoying the US (and other "superpower" countries, not to cite Russia), just for fun (and Principles, whatever this means to non-French people)

-The native country of Rousseau, Voltaire et al., who initiated the "siècle des lumières" and came up with the aforementioned Principles, now very useful when it comes to annoying other countries. Subsequently, a refuge for numerous free-thinkers (who said "just to annoy other countries"?). Famous examples are Leon Sedov (son of Leon Trotsky), just to annoy the USSR who was seeking to kill him, or Salman Rushdie, just to annoy the Ayatollas. The former was assassinated in Paris by a KGB agent whereas the second is still alive, which would tend to prove that the efficiency of French security services improved, or that the KGB was more efficient than islamist activists ;).

-The country the notion of "Human Rights" comes from (origin in the aforementioned "siècle des lumières"), but which is now one of the countries in Europe where they are the less observed in prisoners' treatment (just after Turkey). That's what "living on your reputation" means, folks! Still giving lessons around about human rights, just to annoy other countries (exactly the same as the US do about democracy).

-The country where the first touristic destination in the world is located (aka Paris). Note that people from Paris are considered as weird and unpleasant by most of the other people in France. You're not the only one ;). But some people say that they're that way just to annoy people from other countries!

-and so on... you can imagine the other sarcastic-but-friendly comments by yourself if you've been there! (And if you haven't, go and see before writing bullshit!)
-man, I tell ya, French people are jerks!
-Shut your shithole, you've only been to Paris, you don't know France!

Don't knock it until you've tried it. I have been there two times, and my brother now has lived there for over a year. All the negative stereotypes are untrue, the people there are clean and friendly. And the positive stereotypes are true, they have a great culture, wine, food, etc. You can't say that France is a bad country unless you have firsthand experience. So to all of you rednecks, please, sell your trailer and visit this beautiful country so you can realize that you're just jealous of the French, you don't hate them.
Redneck- France is full of a bunch of smelly assholes!!!

Me- How would you know? You live in a trailer and watch CMT all day... get a life.

A country whose soldiers marched row by row into German machine gun fire in the beginning of World War 1. 500, 000 French soldiers died this way in The Great War. This is the same country that is ridiculed today for having a 'cowardly' military history.
God bless the French.

Sexy, pretty, and often mischevious. Appears demure to those who don't know her well, Frances enjoys being naughty and makes those near to her want to kiss and lick every inch of her soft smooth skin. Funny and beautiful, many would never guess that she has a mouth like a trucker, and deviant sexual desires.

Very beautiful and nice country with a rich culture. I went to France and the stereotypes are untrue. The French are friendly and clean. Most are very chic and chill. A lot of ignorant Americans forget that the French gave us the of America: the Statue of Liberty (D'oh!). It's also a country that gave us troops in the revolution. Most French haters are also Bush supporters who haven't even been to France (most likely because they can't afford it)... why bash what you don't know?
Person 1: I hate France. It's full of smelly ugly pussys. F'ing traitors!

Person 2: You've never even been to France. How would you know? Why don't you step outside your trailer for some fresh air? Also, put down the Toby Keith CD!
