Mahn deeyou - kay pooray dear Sartre?

Since digging into American vs. French cultural differences seems to please some of you, here is one funny take on French Etiquette from FrenchVillas.com. I'm quite happy to see that their comments on greetings and farewell back my owns up. Don't miss their other pages, notably dining and driving in France. Although I really appreciate the humor and style, their basic French phrases gave me a good laugh and will probably attract the same reaction on my fellow concitoyens. They're as funny and useful as this basic English lesson for French people: if you don't know what to say, say "ouate ze foq".
