  • Sind Sie ein Anhänger von Weltuntergangstheorien?
    Lernen Sie Französisch! Aber richtig!
    Nach 2012 wird es keine andere Sprache mehr geben.

    Wie ich den Kommentaren entnehme, sind die Aliens vermutlich keine Vegetarier, da ihnen der Sinn nach Gänseleberpastete, gepresster Ente und Froschschenkeln steht. Wie ich nicht müde werde zu bestätigen, ernähren Franzosen sich ganz überwiegend von Froschschenkeln, sogar die Grundschulkinder essen in der großen Pause schon ihr Baguette mit "cuisses de grenouille". So wie wir in Deutschland ja auch täglich Sauerkraut mit Schweinshaxe oder Weißwürsten essen. Es lebe das Klischee!
