Hi, uhm, Guest!

Product of his blind shoe salesman's envy of a better life I guess, but I don't know for sure. Logics rarely has anything to justify in MWC, you know.. Keep cool anyway, Daniel find this thread and you'll even have the number and title of the episode. :wink:

So you're from US, I guess?

Maybe it's also because it's said that french don't like to speek english - only french.

His disliking(hatred?) goes even deeper. Well, remember trip to England, and the museum of wax figures? One family came by some four hideous monsters, and walked away without expressing emotion. So did the other, and the other family. Then Bundys came in and when the serial family turned around and saw Bundys they screamed in fear. Then Peg asked 'Why are they so scared about?' and Al replied, 'They're probably french, they're afraid of anything'. Well?..

That was no justification, but the contradiction to Daniel's opinion on french people not willing to speak english. I just said there's more, that's it. Can you not remember an episode where Al explains his feelings about them, Dan?

Hi,

I have to admit it... I'm French :wink:

So why Al hates french ? As you know all people have prejudices about other countries. In many countries, they believe that french people are dirty and stink. So in USA it's common to think that french are cowards, stink, drink always wine, etc... It all comes from rumors and part of history. In the past maybe something happens during a war and it ended up like this: french are cowards. Then nowaday french don't want to make a war ;) and finally many will think that the rumor was true: they are cowards !
They think french stink and meet one who is B.O. and they keep on feeding the rumor.

For some people it's a preconceived knowledge, and others know it's wrong. But whatever they think, french is a good 'material' to make joke in USA.

So making Al Bundy a French hater is a thing very funny for americans. Some people can think it's racism because it will make laugh real french hater for the bad reasons. But let's be smart, it's only joke based on a cultural background rumor and it would be too bad to not laugh about that because of racist people. It's only JOKE ! ;) And in the french dubbing version, there's no adaptation, Al Bundy still hates french and it makes me laugh ;)

By the way, sorry about my bad english, I told you I'm French ;)

Hi RedH!

My first question is already answered (if the dubbing changed anything with the french-jokes).

I have never heard this prejustice that frensh are dirty and stink.

But I think the jokes about the frensh people or country are not so hard.
If that would be jokes about my country I could laugh about it.

Keep cool, my French friend, your english is not so bad. It's not bad at all. Dan, you haven't heard about French people being dirty and stink?Well, neither have I. I'm pretty suprised. Maybe it's only a local tendence :)

Talking about looking for the enemies in The Outer World, when they're your neighbours or living in the same city!..

This is one unsolved riddle, no? Why does Al make hoaxes about French.

'Got a question, eating ya like cancer?
Reach out and ask, my friend, for Marcy knows the answer.' <-- which episode was that?

Thanx ;)

I agree, I like those jokes as long as it's humor.


By the way, you never heard about those prejudices about French ? Maybe it's not an European thing. I bet you all know the english expression: 'to take the french leave'. But as I said it comes probably from old conflicts because we have the same in french: 'filer à l'anglaise' which means 'to take the english leave' :)

About the french who are dirty and stink, it's maybe an American stuff. I mean, do you know the animated cartoon Pepé Le Pew ? it's a french skunk !? lol

And here's a good american joke:
Why do the French Smell ?
So blind people can hate them too !


That's maybe why Al hates french, just some kind of cultural jokes. There's no prob about that...

Otherwise there's a good page about french and MWC on http://www.bundyology.com
