    Who cares about the food if the waiter is an obnoxious p*ick?

    And in Chirac's case, the chef as well.

    What is so ironic is The "french" people eats snail eww and frog legs ewwww and they judge other people on how they cook and how they eat,

    French frize has just been terminated in usa they dont serve french frize in usa any more because of french not supporting the war againts Iraq.

    Oh dear.

    Do they just call it chips now?

    Haha, reminds me of the Simpsons episode.

    Yes we do have French Fries, but here we call them 'chips'.

    I believe they were actually renamed 'Freedom Fries'.

    I'm kinda wondering if the story is going to end up at snopes.com as an urban legend at some stage, so my guess is "no". The whole idea of Schroeder, Putin and Chirac having such a cliched conversation seems way too contrived for me.

    Let's not let it get in the way of a good Brit/Gallic slanging match though. I loved the description of Tony Blair as "furious" after hearing of the comments - "Ooooh, that hurts!"

    Ouch! Hitting us right where it hurts: our culinary skills.

    It's true that our cuisine is basic and by "basic" I mean doesn't incorporate eating Brian, Kermit or Black Beauty; involve cruelty to geese or come smothered in garlic.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    That was in the Republican Party cafeteria on Captiol Hill. Freedom Fries and Freedom Toast. It's not a nation-wide thing.

    Anyway, as far as the topic is concerned, the food in france was the best I've ever had, especially the bread. How they manage to make bread so much better than everyone else I have no idea, but they do.

    I'm sure you can get good food in England, but bubble and squeak and so on is pretty awful. And come on, why do you have to boil everything? And what's the obsession with cabbage?

    Any nation whose main contribution to world cuisine involves chucking stuff on the barbie & warm cans of fizzy pi$$ is on pretty thin ice dissing ours!
