The truth about pâté de foie gras being in poor taste

Before you complain about the inhumane practice of force feeding geese to harvest their liver as a culinary delicacy, then consider what the poor French have to suffer especially if you believe that French lovers are not fighters. 

If so then you will find these “in poor taste” quotes quite funny. I did..

    • Somebody was telling me about the French Army rifle that was being advertised on eBay the other day – the description was, 'Never shot.  Dropped once.'' 

    • 'It is important to remember that the French have always been there when they needed us.'  Alan Kent

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

    • "The last time the French asked for 'more proof' it came marching into Paris under a German flag." -- David Letterman

    • 'France has neither winter nor summer nor morals.  Apart from these drawbacks it is a fine country.

    All these unkind quotes are from people who should have better manners. But then again if we can poke fun at the Irish. Poles Aussies, Kiwis Brits, & Newfoundlanders why not the French?
