No One To Show It To...

I got this one in an email from a friend in Bosnia..

A group of Americans, retired teachers, recently went to France on a tour. Among them was Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83. When he arrived in Paris by plane and took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on at French Customs, the customs officer askedsarcastically, "You have been to France before, monsieur?" Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously. "Then you should know enough to have your passport ready." The American replied, "The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it." "Impossible. Americans always have to show your passports on arrival in France!" The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained.

"Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in '44 to help liberate
this country, I couldn't find any Frenchmen to show it to."

How quickly people forget.

Thanks Sarge and stay alert.

SlagleRock Out!

Only the French can afford to be arrogant and ignorant. They forget that the U.S. rescued them from two world wars and financed their Indo-China war, which they lost due to their stubborn arrogance.

Yikes! That had to leave a welt, if the asshat customs agent had any soul to begin with. Great post!
