    one liner.

    Whats the difference between an American tourist and a hippopotamus? 10 kg.

    I think Hippos are much more than 10kg lighter than American Tourists...

    I have to admit, the absolute worst place in the world to be for the "observation" of overly large people who are inappropriately dressed, (read spandex, shorts, skimpy tops), is Disneyworld on a hot summers day... all that dangling flab and no place to hide... It's enough to make a man poke out his eyes...

    Another one liner I just made up:

    What does a Frenchman do better than anyone else? Say I surrender in over 30 languages. (Mexico would like that joke, even they kicked France's ass, bet you guys love Cinco De Mayo).

    I've always liked this variation of an old joke:

    "A Frenchwoman walks into a bar carrying a duck under her arm.
    The bartender says "HEY! You can't bring that pig in here."
    The Frenchwoman says "Excuse me...but that's a duck."
    The bartender says back, "Excuse ME, but I was talking to the duck."

    Or:

    What do you call a Frenchman with a sheep under one arm and a goat under the other?

    A bisexual.

And we\'re very, very pissed off.\" - Tyler (Brad Pitt) Fight Club.

    After spending almost every summer of my life in Florida, and the last 10 years here year-round, I can assure you it's not just Disneyworld.

    The really great thing is that most of the time, the spandex, shorts and skimpy tops are in eye-shattering shades of lime green, neon yellow, and hot pink. With large flowers.

    The hippo has a better chance of knowing how much 10kg is as well.

    Historicaly, the R on renault gear boxes was for 'reculer' (Retreat).

    Noia, not sure how that's funny, since "reculer" is exactly as valid as "reverse" is.

    Unless the joke is in your poor translation attempt?
