This article points out that there are apparently four races on the planet. One of which are the French, which means we are French.

This is a ****ing OUTRAGE of the highest order, please complain to OFCOM and relevant authorities.

I'm afraid it's true. The English are, after all, the only people ever conquered by the French. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

When did the concept of 'Frenchness' begin? I must admit to liking France and the French a lot.

Wait a minute. The English can't possibly be French. English cuisine and French genetics are utterly incompatible.

I propose that there is an as-of-yet undiscovered fifth branch that accounts for the English.

I've always found the reputation for french cuisine to be very amusing. I live about 30 miles from frogland, and have been over there more times than i can remember.

I have had some truly awful meals over there just as i have in blighty.

besides these are people who consider frogs and snails food.

Definately not French.....otherwise the Romans wouldn´t have needed to skirt around the Rhine to protect the Frenchies, from their eastern neighbores. Also French can not make decent beer.
Good they where a few times here with old Napi, but everytime they where kicked out. I know a bunch of Bavaians would be insulted if one called them Frenchies..... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Yes but so do others too! And it definately where no Frenchies that thumped the Romans in the Teotoburger Forest! Can it be that a Frenchy wrote that report?

What surrender monkies?
The 17th, 18th and 19th legion where no Frenchies, and the germanic tribes certainly had nothing in common with them either.

Have you maybe already been dipping in deeply into the christmas punch?

And the Germans also make good wine (better than the French, I'd argue.)
And good beer.
And good food.

Well Britain has wonderful landscapes that are always a visit worth!
@Low_Flyer_MkIX there is a region in northern Bavaria called Franken, where as Frankfurt in the province Hessen is. As to the name Frankfurt, it means a river crossing that the Franks used.
As to the merry fellows that visited you, there where two tribes the Angeln & the Saxons, although they got a fair beating 1066. So yes I would say there are some ties with Germany, although in all those centuries there was also a lot more mixed in, that Frenchies could bring up any serious claim of any sorts.
