Happy Bastille Day!

Today is Bastille Day, so here is some French humour for you. I delivered this joke at my Toastmasters meeting this morning.
Did you hear about the Frenchman who jumped into the river in Paris?  He was declared to be insane (in Seine).

Speaking of the Seine – the central landmark of Paris is the Louvre Museum located on the Right Bank of the Seine. It contains a magnificent collection of art works with over 35,000 objects and is the most visited museum in the world.

In one of the galleries of fine oil paintings there was a British man, a Frenchman and a Russian viewing a painting of Adam and Eve frolicking in the Garden of Eden.

The British man said:

“Look at their reserve, their calm. They must be British.”

“Nonsense!” the Frenchman disagrees.

“They’re naked, and so beautiful. Clearly, they are French.”

The Russian pondered the painting for a few more moments:

“No clothes, mo shelter, they only have one apple to eat, and they’re being told this is paradise. Clearly, They are Russian.”

And a few more one-liners.

What is the Guillotine?
A French chopping centre.

Which ghost was president of France?
Charles de Ghoul.

Charles de Gaulle once said “How can anyone govern a nation that has 240 different kinds of cheese?
