Ribs for London Olympics

Get ready people - PLENTY of time to get ready for the 2012 Olympics!!!! Rib patrols galore for the thames and all the sailing events!!!

About time Britain won a bid - one in the eye for the bloody French!!!

Teach Chirac to make comments about British food!!! He said the only people with food worse than ours were the Finns - wonder if it had anything to do with the way they voted???

Chirac went on to say American food was great!!! Bloody cheek considering he is at a big banquet with the Queen this week. I reckon they should serve him a McDonalds - imagine his face when they lift the silver platter!!!

I'll agree with all that.

Just remember, nature in its infinate wisdom put at least 22 miles of sea between us and them, and it did it for a reason.

France a great country, they have their heads screwed on over there, teach sailing in school,, great food, lovely countryside coastline, their own beautiful language, there are lots of Brits living there now, ex pats, I am sure as snails and horse meat are offensive to British people, French people are probably highly offended with Hp sauce on bread for breakfast for example.
Really you could think of the Uk and France being one country now , what with the channel tunnell in service, makes for easy access for migrant workers to reach the Uk now, which is good for the UK economy.

I do, but I have a British rib were was yours made then ?

Okay rediculous discussion, but Chirac's comments earlier this week seemed to have back fired.

mmm... i guess an ex pat is a person who used to be from Ireland who has moved to France... but then - what is a person who used to live in England but has moved to France ??

funny thing about all that French food - snails, frogs legs, maggoty cheese - have you ever actually tasted any of them ??? well the snails are like bits of rubber smeared in garlic, the frogs legs are like the bits that were left on the chicken three days later - and I wonder if French people actually eat them ??

Another thing - you know how many of the great restaurants sell them style themselves as 'French' restaurants - yet when you go to a restaurant in France it's never like that...

but in fairness to Chirac - I think you are quoting him selectively - didnt he say he was looking forward to a good steak in Scotland ?? - have you ever tried to find a good steak in France ;-)...

And as far as beer is concerned, when you grow up with Guinness it gives you perspective. (and a gut) - (reminds me of a funny incident last year - my 2 sons and I were going to a sailing school BBQ - as we walked in my eldest sons said to me - there's the other Rib guys over there Dad... I asked him how did he know ?? - they're the only 2 people other than you Dad that have a belly...)

yeah - Belgium... I've heard of that place - did I hear that they make chocolates and beer and keep getting the receipes mixed up ?? where exactly is it ??? Is it a part of the Nederlands ? (odd place... full of dykes...)

Nah, all in all - I just cant wait till August comes and I'm off with the Rib to lakes in France again...

That's because of the Cheap property, cheap food and milder climate
