Hillarious! Thanks for sharing. More French jokes, please.
PeteBoom. Good for the History lesson. But when you mentioned French acheivements of the FIW you neglected to mention the victories over the colonial villages, the thousand or so civilian non-combatant casualties; farmers, children, babies; which they tortured, killed and kidnapped along with their Indian allies. Emma Coleman's book on the subject gives the butcher's bill which is two volumes long.
And Rick, the Normans whick produced Bill the Bastard (aka the Conqueror) were not Frankish in origin, rather they were the result of Scandinavian invaders.
