shower irony

In the shower this morning (just let it lie), I got to thinking about the "French military victories" thread over on Flutterby (direct link to the thread elided, to avoid pouring any more Google juice on that fire), and I realized something. All the things that Americans stereotypically hate about the French -- their disdain for other cultures, their need to have things their own way -- their essential Gallic arrogance -- these are the French peoples' most American qualities.

Make of that what you will.
