Day thirtyfour....

Cheese eating surrender monkeys

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…"

Why can America and France not seem to get along? Even this off the cuff whip from a cartoon became a catchphrase frequently used by republican politicians and publications. There are many reasons that Le French and the US of Whatever don't get on, mainly starting from the ZYX Affair in which the French demanded a $12million loan and lead to a navy war called the Quasi war in which many American ships where seized. Also as seen on day 30, Le French aren't big fans of a certain American fast food outlet, and with the French not showing full support for the Iraq War there are endless lists of why they cant just get on. Maybe its an ego thing with both nations believing that the are "universal nations" and look down their noses at nations who don't live with either the American capitalist ways or the existentialistic French.

But is being a cheese eating surrender monkey such a bad thing? All i know is i would prefer this...

Than this..

A victory to cheese. I bid you adieu
