In late August 1939, a man brings his shoes at the shoemaker.
Three days later, war is declared. Mobilized, he moved to the front, and he was taken prisoner. Liberated by the Russians in 45, he fought with an officer, which earned him ten years of Gulag. Traded by the Americans, he finds himself in the United States and settled there.
And now forty years later, he returned to France as a tourist. Of course, this man will see his street. It has changed much, except that the shoe repair store is still there. So out of curiosity, he enters and asks the old man behind the counter:
– How long have you been here for?
– Oh, my dear sir, since before the war!
– So is it to you that I gave my shoes to repair! It was late August 1939. Three days later I was mobilized …
He tells his whole story. And he adds:
– In fact, you may still have my shoes? It would be funny …
– Wait … I’ll see says the old man.
He lifts his door and down the basement. From below he shouts:
– What color are your shoes?
– Are they square with brown laces?
– They’ll be ready on Thursday …November 28, 2010 5:14 am at 5:14 am #1118848Fast ForwardMember

if this were a French cofferoom, and such jokes and false rumors were being told about Jews, we would be here complaining about the darn antisemites, telling demeaning stories about Jews.November 28, 2010 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #1118855
Ron, we wouldn’t care what they saidc about us.November 28, 2010 9:22 pm at 9:22 pm #1118856
These jokes wouldn’t make sense about Jews. Now, if the jokes were about us having long noses and ripping people off, we might get insulted. Especially about the ripping people off.November 29, 2010 2:49 am at 2:49 am #1118857
ronrsr, I agree. Some people here should take a visit to the Rue des Rosiers in Paris and tell these jokes there.November 29, 2010 3:09 am at 3:09 am #1118858☕️coffee addictParticipant

cshapiro, huh? Who is “preaching to the choir?” Or do you not know what that phrase means? If I were preaching to the choir, then everyone would agree with me which is certainly not the case.
Take a tip from someone who already went to college. You do not need a “French joke” to make your presentation. For all you know, your professor will not like it and then you’ve lost him. You never know the complete background of those listening.November 29, 2010 10:27 pm at 10:27 pm #1118868

mbachur, why is it OK to make fun of a nationality and not OK to make fun of religion? Both are composed of people with feelings.November 30, 2010 5:38 pm at 5:38 pm #1118872
“mbachur, why is it OK to make fun of a nationality…”
It is OK to make fun of the French because they have no concept of Hakaras HaTov. Tens of thousands of American boys died fighting to liberate france. If not for the U.S. the frenchies (who survived) would be speaking german. – and yet, the french not only have no hakaras hatov, they are anti-American.
Additionally, after the Six Day War, when they got pressure from the yishmaelim, they cut off arms supplies to Eretz Yisrael.November 30, 2010 7:47 pm at 7:47 pm #1118873
AinOhdMilvado, Have you ever visited France other than changing planes at CDG?November 30, 2010 7:54 pm at 7:54 pm #1118874
It is ok to make fun of the french because they are rotten horrible people, who do not have a good midda among them.
Yet, they are human and tzelem elokim. We should use them as an example of where humanity can fall. Indeed, that is the essence of our greatness, that we have the opportunity to sink, but we rise.November 30, 2010 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #1118875so rightMember

These jokes are almost as funny as Jew-jokes. And why did anyone want to revive a 5-year old disgraceful thread so soon after a terrorist attack on Paris?December 2, 2015 10:07 pm at 10:07 pm #1118884

“If this were a French coffee room, and such jokes and false rumors

To scared driver delight: Pay attention to your davening. In my nusach, after putting on tefillin, we read that we should treat others as we want to be treated. That applies even to the French.December 27, 2015 1:26 pm at 1:26 pm #1118889JosephParticipant
nfgo, no it does not apply to them. It only applies to Acheinu Bnei Yisroel.December 27, 2015 1:45 pm at 1:45 pm #1118890
I await your apology nfgo i explained why i revived this thread (it was my very first post and i revived it on my 5 year anniversary) and as you can see i defended the french 5 years ago and did not join in the stereotyping.
