Viva La Difference

John Phillips ’02 offers his thoughts, such as they are, on the differences between French and American women.

American women cannot dress properly. Do not contest it, just accept it. Colors, perfumes, make up. It’s not a date, it’s hanging out with a flower vending clown.

Courting a French woman is like boolean algebra. You have to say enough double entendres to progressively eliminate all possible alternate meanings.

There is a reason Phillips walked out of Williams single, and it isn’t his political leanings.

listening to john on women is like listening to g.w. bush on reading material.

Perhaps I am a slow learner or haven’t been paying attention all these years, but as far as I am concerned, what Churchill said about Russia applies to females – and I don’t find that quality charming, endearing or challenging except as it currently appears in my granddaughters.

Actually, he didn’t leave Williams single.

But if he did, it would be because he’s a smelly Frenchman.

there are, after all, only so many places you can go if you don’t value personal hygeine and like hairy pits…

females will be an overwhelming preponderant power in Europe after the war and France should be built up as the main European defence against a potentially dangerous female species?

Ronit: The Churchill quote I was thinking about was the one to the effect that Russia is a riddle wrapped in an enigma inside a mystery. As to France, it has shown in my lifetime that it is incapable of defending against anything anytime anywhere even BO.

Frank, when I put up the quotes page again, that one about France defending itself will be on there.

To paraphrase GBS, “ratholes are where all the interesting people are found”.
