    Wink For Malahat and the other Canadians.

    An elderly gentleman of 83 arrived in Paris by plane. At the French Customs desk, the man took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry-on bag.

    "You have been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked, sarcastically.

    The elderly gentleman admitted he had been to France previously. "Then you should know enough to have your passport Ready."

    The Canadian said, "The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it."

    "Impossible. Canadians always have to show their passports on arrival in France!"

    The Canadian senior gave the Frenchman a long hard Look. Then he quietly explained.

    "Well, when I came ashore on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find any Frenchmen to show it to."

    Yeah,but we have actors with no previous experience making better quality wines and putting them in boxes for easy consumption.
    They're just hacked because their own people like Mickie D's and Coke better and we don't even try their cuisine.
    Though I do not question the courage of the French.After all,they discovered that snails were edible.Not as good as haggis,but edible.

    How many gears does a French tank have?

    5- 4 for reverse and 1 to go foreward (in case they are attacked from the rear)
