Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 93, arrived in Paris by plane. At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on.

"You have been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked sarcastically.

Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.

"Then you should know enough to have your passport ready."

The Englishman said, 'The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it."

"Impossible. You English always have to show your passports on arrival in France !"

The English senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained,

''Well, when I came ashore at Gold Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find a single Frenchmen to show a passport to."

Is that along the lines of the brit being asked at Australian immigration if he had any criminal convictions. To which the reply was I didn't think that was a requirement anymore. C- must try harder :rolleyes:
Strange how this obvious poke at the French hasn't been removed and hasn't been contested by dropclanger. :rolleyes:
