Crazy Cheese Eaters

The French have long been disparaged with the nickname, “Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys.” This epithet probably stems from a combination of their projected arrogance and their having to be bailed out in WW1, WW2, and VietNam.

Times being what they are, I can’t vouch for the current state of of the French’s eagerness to surrender in the face of opposition but it’s plain as day that they’re still some crazy cheese eaters.

Regardez Sur La Puissance Du Fromage

This hilarious television commercial that Ruairi Robinson directed for France’s Centre National Interprofessionnel de lEconomie Laitire (CNIEL) more than makes that point clear.

Mon dieux! Even the – Mutant? Prehistoric? – river monsters in the Seine are hooked on cheese to the point of excluding people from their diet? That’s some seriously crazy cheese eating! 😆

    I love bashing the French as much as anyone, but I generally do it over their modern leftist tendencies or their anti American fears of our assault on French cultural dominance of Continental Europe.

    I am kinder when it comes to their military history because when they failed militarily it generally could be attributed to weak civilian leadership. We tend to have the same problem today in our country. You also must remember that with out the French bailing us out with their treasure and blood in the Revolutionary War we would still be speaking British instead of proper American English. The French King ultimately lost his head partly because of spending that money.

    Fair enough, Alan. Most don’t feel that way though. And a cheese-eating river monster?!?!?!

    I happen to like French cheese, but spitting out the young lady for the cheese. I don’t think the monster is really French. By his manners probably an American tourist from say, Chicago.

    That’d depend on what part of Chicago. Those from Obama’s old district would be unlikely to let a White woman go if they could get their paws on one. 😆
