Well, they're not at war. They have plenty of time to contemplate such trivialities...

Most important paragraphs in the article:

"The 7-year-old commission has links to the Academie Francaise, the prestigious institution that has been one of the top opponents of allowing English terms to seep into French.

Some Internet industry experts say the decision is artificial and doesn't reflect reality."

Not much left to add to that....

Other than the Manag au twas (too busy trying to make it happen than figure out how to spell it)
French Kissing
French Tickler
French Dressing
and French Bread what other good ideas have they come up with?
Not Armpit hair on girls
Not the "One shower per month"rule.
Not the food (It takes forever to get full on that stuff and then you sh*^t it out 2 minutes after your done)
Not the pompus holyer than thou attitude.
Hell, the French cut bathingsuit was even taken over by the G-string.
So why do we keep them around?
