    Nearly 1000 years of failing to conquer their country like they conquered ours.
    The Normans weren't French

    Edit: I see it's been said :p:

    I have always wondered why they hated them so much!!
    Their language raped our language, also the Hundred Years War.

    They are extremely French.

    We've got our revenge over language though since now they have to live with things like "le e-mail" etc.

    Because they are rude! "Paris Syndrome" is a medically recognised type of depression which afflicts foreign visitors, caused by the sustained rudeness of French people to outsiders.

    Millions of geese and ducks are force-fed in battery farms to make foie gras.

    No sense of humour! Gérard Depardieu announced he was leaving France because: "Only the British understand me… They have a great sense of humour. It is the French who are cretins".

    They can’t admit that their wine is not as popular as it once was. An infamous Paris Wine Tasting of 1976, when an English wine merchant organised a "blind" tasting before a jury of French experts. To their horror, they rated Californian wines as winners in both the red and white wine categories. The French press first denied any tasting had happened, then claimed the results were fixed.

    Q: What’s the difference between a Frenchman and a bucket of crap?
    A: The bucket! :yep:

    Famous quotes about the French: "I just love the French. They taste like chicken!" - Hannibal Lecter "

    "I would rather have a German division in front of me than a French one behind me." - General George S. Patton " :pierre:

    I don't think most do tbh. It's kind of like Oxford vs. Cambridge. Hardly anyone in either actually has any strong feelings about the other, but everyone outside thinks that there is some massive rivalry. Most people who make jokes about the French do so because it is expected and so jokes about the French are allowed rather than offensive.

    To be honest, it's non-existant in France (apart when playing rugby or football). English people are always going on about that rivalry, but the truth is no-one cares in France. Apart from English people.

    erm - "courriel"?

    The French don't hate us, but if you go to France with the preconception that you are going to have a hard time, then you will have exactly that. I've got many friends in France and love visiting there, you just have to make a little effort with the language and a lot with the culture, and you'll go far.

    They are terrible terrible drivers. Living here you get used to regular brushes with death in a car or other moving vehicle. Red lights and zebra crossings are often treated as optional, as are seatbelts and right of way signs. The English really are fabulous drivers by comparison.

    The same thing that American people have against Canadians - they're nearby, and an easy target for banter :p:

    No they're not :indiff:
    Crossing a road in England is far more dangerous than in France because no-one expects you to cross the road anytime, so they don't stop if you do, unlike France, or Canada, or Romania for that matters.
