My company is multi-national and i find it quite ironic that we're in partnership with the
Frogs, Yammys comments sum them all up, Eyeties, well there history of surrendering is second to none and the Germans, who've we've beaten over two World Wars in the last 100 years !

It is well known that the British army marches on its stomach,but I dont think we will get very far on frogs legs and snails, but the wine is not bad

Agree with all thats been said except for the one about the Germans. Dont get me wrong I am no rabid German lover, except for the women, but!!!
If you think dispassionately about it, We never beat the Germans unless we out- manned, them, out-gunned them, or had far superior equipment and more of it. And they were also great allies at Waterloo.

Night of the English win in 1966, I was in Hamburg walking up and down Hermann Strasse, off the Reeperbahn.
I was in a group of four and we didn't dare open our mouths in case we let them know we we Pommies. Although they were in a jubilant mood and shouting 'Uwe Seeler(?)' it could have turned ugly if they had a target, so we didnt give them one.
Oh! Happy days.

Incidentally, the ladies occupying the windows weren't soccer fans. So there was no clash of ideology.

We should never have stopped at Agincourt, should have carried right on. Think of all that wine which we would be making instead of them, and all those little frogs that would be enjoying hopping about. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
As it is, so mote it be.
