My daughter, who is an NGO professional and fluent in French, sent me this link. We both laughed, and we both love France. (No, I have not tried to get anything accomplished in France in August.)
Cultural stereotypes exist for a reason. My own favorite is about the Frenchman who said "That's all very well in practice, but does it work in theory?" Consider the two most iconic French cars, the Citroen 2CV and DS 19. They began as clean-sheet design concepts, rooted in clear goals. They were executed with rigorous logic and creative engineering.
Or consider cultural stereotypes going the other way. Jeremy Clarkson observed on Top Gear, as he pounded down an Autoroute in Normandy, well above the speed limit in a Shelby Mustang, "There is nothing the French love so much as Englishman flouting their laws in a flashy American car."
