England v France

Tim in California sent this. As Tim says, you need to know a few people from France and England to really appreciate it:

An Englishman is having breakfast one morning (coffee, croissants, bread, butter and jam) when a Frenchman, chewing bubble-gum, sits down next to him. The Englishman ignores the Frenchman who, nevertheless, starts a conversation.

Frenchman: “You English folk eat the whole bread??”

Englishman (in a bad mood): “Of course.”

Frenchman: (after blowing a huge bubble) “We don’t. In France, we only eat what’s inside. The crusts we collect in a container, recycle it, transform them into croissants and sell them to Britain.” The Frenchman has a smirk on his face.

The Englishman listens in silence.

The Frenchman persists: “Do you eat jam with the bread??”

Englishman: “Of Course.”

Frenchman: (cracking his bubble-gum between his teeth and chuckling). “We don’t. In France we eat fresh fruit for breakfast, then we put all the peels, seeds, and leftovers in containers, recycle them, transform them into jam and sell the jam to Britain.”

After a moment of silence, The Englishman then asks: “Do you make love in France?”

Frenchman: “Why of course we do”, he says with a big smirk.

Englishman: “And what do you do with the condoms once you’ve used them?”

Frenchman: “We throw them away, of course.”

Englishman: “We don’t. In Britain, we put them in a container, recycle them, melt them down into bubble-gum and sell them to France.”
