Next time invade France:
(Historian Tony) Judt notes that France, a country with a population of some forty million, was administered by fifteen hundred Nazis, plus six thousand German policemen… Soon after Germany was defeated, a Myth of Resistance sprang up in the formerly occupied countries of Western Europe, and for many years it successfully obscured the truth about wartime life.
Plus, the weather’s nice, they serve wine (it’s verr nice) and you’re allowed to look at the ladies without fatally offending anyone’s over-wrought, highly attuned sense of proprietal honor. Which, based on my recollections from a long-lost, oft-lamented youth, is a significant plus.
The looking at the ladies part. Not the other.
So long as you don’t mind leg hair.
