Adept hosts, the French are unpopular abroad:
French people are the world's worst tourists according to a study of the global hotel industry.
Knew it, didn't you?

Abu, your comment is singularly weird.

It's just more anti-French racism from the retarded right. If somebody made the same statement about American tourists, Becky would be beside himself with impotent rage.

For as long as I can remember American tourists have had a well-deserved reputation for being obnoxious and loud. The linked survey uses other criteria. This doesn't change the obnoxious loudness of American tourists. Idiot.

You can get away with a whole lot of racism against the French that you'd never get away with against other races.

Well that's because other races tend not to eat as much cheese or surrender as often...

Every race can be irritating, but there's a lot more to be admired in French culture and civilisation
You tend to hear that about a lot of European capitals.

Personally, every time I hear an Australian saying "Why can't we be more like Europe" my first thought is "have they ever actually been there?" Nothing works!

The best bits of Europe are hundreds of years old. So much since is dysfunctional. It's a bit like the Muslim world carrying on about the great contribution they've made to society (albeit briefly hundreds and hundreds of years ago).

The cultural cringe lives on...

It's ok to be racist against the French, because underlying it all you really wouldn't mind being one of them. And there's no way you'd ever turn down a roll in the hay with a hairy-pitted mademoiselle...
