In reality, frenchies are rather macho, cocky and rude, yet they bathe regularly and their women do shave their armpits and all the rest (in my experience).
They are heavy weed smokers (n°1 in Europe) and road killers (also n°1 on alcohol-related crashes in Europe)
Also, despite common belief, they don't hate the US (lots of em are yankee wanabees), they gave up wearing "kepi" since 1930 or so, and eating frogs or snails isn't "cool" to them.
From what i've seen they ain't especially lightweight and they won't take shit from anywone without responding.
At last, they are rather warm toward foreigners and they won't mind treating you to a bottle of good wine or a big friendly buzz if you come over.
Overall frenchies are cool and yet misunderstood
Me : Fuck off you fuckin muppet.
