People are being told to stay indoors and air and water contamination are risks as the fire is burning some rather noxious chemicals. It is so easy to be blinded by our current situation in the United States to the point we barely see any international news of note at the top of news feeds. I hope for the people of Rouen and the surrounding area that they are able to stay safe and this chemical disaster is rapidly contained. September 30, 2019 Reply Jondoe Harris I love Silly Putty.

Is it because Chirac gave the finger to the US by not joining your irak war, or because that factory is owned by an american billionaire ?

October 23, 2019 Reply oliveavelo This is a real problem, going from 2 to 3 stars is a million euro investment for a restaurant, and losing the star is losing a lot of money.There's 127 3star restaurants in the world and 26 in France. The average cheapest menu start around 150€ in France. October 23, 2019 Reply Judic Perrot I'm French and i naively clicked, thinking you were gonna talk about police violence against peacefull protests. Or about the governement's scandalous orchestration of islamophobia (guess who will be the only possible bullwark against Le Pen come election time ?) to make the people forget they are destroying vital public services one by one for profit, and so on and so on.

First we don't have cheese with crackers, english people do and yes one of our chef is angry about something that may sound trivial but here in France it echoed in public opinion because unlike some other people we really care about food; what's inside and how it is made.

Period. October 24, 2019 Reply Sango jul Would be time to change those stupid old clichés !!Nice german accent by the way… October 24, 2019 Reply Léonie Mélodie It was funny, I didn't really laugh but I like this type of sketch. Just to clarify something: This isn't actually a good french accent.I'm French, and most of the time we will try our best to make our best American or English accent while speaking English (which will usually end up being pretty shitty).However, if an old monsieur is speaking in English (old french people are bad at English) he will usually pronounce the words as if it was French. It's not even near that "French accent" you guys are thinking of. The monsieur will read the word "knees" pronouncing the k and other words with a French phonetic. But we usually have the same words, just prononced or written a bit differently.But that doesn't matter. Someday you'll go to France and realise it's just completely different from what you thought of it. Or you'll just look for French videos on YouTube and hope for subtitles.

There are a lot of things for making fun of France but this joke doesn't work in my opinion when we know the real situation of the country. And the accent is very bad, nobody speaks like a german in France, except in the very northwest.
