#1 ``It is not well brought-up behavior,'' Chirac said of the declarations. ``They missed a good opportunity to keep quiet.''

They missed a good opportunity to keep quiet is a gem of a phrase. It will be the inscription on Chirac's political tombstone. Thanks, Jacques, for the great quote!

#2 It's looking more and more like Chiraq is a bigger threat to world peace than Saddam.

#3 Jacques, appears the "peasants" are revolting. Pity they don't know their place, isn't it?

#4 My, what long teeth you have Mr. Chirac...

I hope the East Euros left a trail of breadcrumbs...

#5 After Iraq, could we bomb France, too?

#6 On second thought, could we bomb France first?

#7 Bomb France? Wouldnt we achieve the same result by sneaking up behind Chirac and blowing up a g a paper sack with air and popping it?

I heard a good one today from my Dutch friends:
The English say "cheers", Americans say "good bye", germans say "auf weidersein" and the french say "we surrender"
