>Quebec

I was thinking that they are French but evolved to a higher life form. Then I remembered Celine Dion!

Never mind bel, anything is better than the Spice Girls!

Boy, you go away for five minutes and your whole province is beseiged.

The states would never be able to win a war on moving day...all the streets are jammed up, they'd get stuck at the border .

>And the lousy pop music - oh wait a second - Celine Dion!
Ooo quel jab about Céline Dion. Actually, I regret to say that I find her English singing voice to be quite annoying. Her French voice is so much nicer – like a bell, clear and fresh. But that woman has got to eat more, now, she eats a cracker and looks like a thermometer.

>What I want to know is, if they'r really French, then how come I don't hear about their wine
We don`t make wine. We make love . If you had a choice which would you prefer?

An exclusive choice? For all time? oooh, now let me think, who's got the prettiest dimple in the bottom....

Well, I don't have a dimple in the bottom, but I do have one on my visage when I smile, will that do?







You see Mav, now would you go to war with someone who flirts so outrageously. Americans love the ladies from Québec . We are French, WITHOUT the snootiness. The French Québecois are as close to the French from France as the Brits are to the U.S. We seem to get under their skin for some reason. Usually, they keep correcting our pronunciation and look down on us as the dirty unwashed. It can be quite tedious. Can we have the Americans, oops, new Brits start a war with them instead ?

Being a dirty old man, I am wondering if there are any "dirty unwashed" women in Quebec who would permit me to give them a bath? Which brings up a word query: Why do we US of Americans - oops - New Brits change the meaning of "douche" from its French meaning to a cleansing of a more specific nature? The few French whom I know here just assume that we Anglos are a bunch of perverts. ;-)

Perhaps the person who forwarded it to tsuwm perceived that modifying its content in such a manner would increase its impact. Or perhaps I'm a gibbering loon.

Are these two options mutually exclusive?

Well spotted. You are first to credit this semi-evolved simian with the possibilty of getting something right despite being a gibbering loon.

Dear s-e simian,

Hey--you've been right before, and I've known for a long time that you're a gibbering loon!

P.S.--are you related to e.e. cummings?

I wish! or, rather, i wish. why would anyone attempt to sully a fine author's reputation by suggesting a kinship with yours truly?

like the rest of us, fine authors can only choose their friends, not their families
