I'm not big on chain letters, but one I remember fondly turned up in 1995 when the French Government began atomic tests in Mouaroa Atoll. I don't know who wrote it, bu it is in perfect Franglaise.

lonita's gerglish post reminded me of it.


This was a letter to the editor in an Australian newspaper:

An open letter to M. Jacques Chirac:

Mon cher Jack

Je suis a bit fromaged off avec votre decision to blow up La
Pacifique avec le Frog bombes nuclears. Je reckon vous must
have un spot in La Belle France itself pour les explosions.
Le Massive Central? Le Quay d'Orsay? Le Champs Elysees?
Votre own back yard, peut etre?

Frappez le crows avec stones, Sport! La guerre cold est
fini! Votres forces militaire need la bombe atomique about
as beacoup as poisson need les bicyclettes.

Un autre point, cobber. Votre histoire militaire isn't tres
flash, consisting, n'est-ce pas, of battailles the likes of
Crecy, Agincourt, Poitiers, Trafalgar, Borodino, Waterloo,
Sedan et Dien Bien Phu. Un bombe won't change le tradition.
Je/mon pere/mon grand pere/le cousin third avec ma
grandmere/ la plume de ma tante fought avec votre soldats
against Le Boche in WWI (le Big One). Have vous forgotten?

Reconsider, mon ami, otherwise in le hotels et estaminets de
l'Australie le curse anciens d'Angleterre - "Damnation to
the French" - will be heard un autre temps.

Votre chums don't want that.
