Hillarious!

French insults have always been and always will be welcome here Sith (as long as Ramses isn't around of course!)

Ramses is Canadian. He probably loves the French as much as the Aussies love the Brits.

Although the hatred for the French is completely irrational, still some of the jokes said at their expense can be pretty damm funny.

Re: Cannes Film Festival

So, are the French people rifle droppers, or is it just the French government? Or does the government reflect the people? I guess if they have a long history or running from a fight, the government probably does reflect the people. I actually want to like the French. Just for the medieval history, which is interesting for some reason. Also, revolutionary France and the 19th century revolts are interesting, as well as Napoleon, though he wasn't French.

Re: Cannes Film Festival

Iwata,

Ramses is French-Canadian and speaks fluent French and has a rather heavy French accent.

Which is why I made that little comment.
