1. A reasonably entertaining epithet used in the Simpsons to describe the french.
2. Used by a plagiarist, a bore, an asshat, a neoconservative, a douchebag and/or a dickwad, as a weak attempt to appear smart; and an unoriginal way to describe the french.
Hi. I'm an asshat neoconservative dickwad bore. Those french over there are cheese-eating surrender monkeys. Aren't I smart?

A perjorative term for any French citizen. Only used by idiots who couldn't find France on a labelled world map.
