Hi All,

Today 20th May, a few days after Le Pen's election as president in France, a brand new French football team has been chosen to go to the World Cup in June.

Zinedine Zidane has been prevented from coming back to France, and has been offered a Spanish passport, but he might go back to Algeria. Thuram, Desailly, Wiltord, Cisse, Trezeguet, Henry, Anelka, Makelele and Vieira do not correpond to the proper French look ( a bit too tanned!! ), what Le Pen calls the real French traditional look. Bixente Lizarazu has been offered to change his basque name to Benoit Lizaret, which Liza refused. Pires will spend holidays with his grand parents in Portugal, Djorkaeff in Armenia and Candela in Sicily. >From the original world champions in 1998 are left Fabien Barthez, Emmanuel Petit and Franck Leboeuf ( Leboeuf = the bull, now that's a traditional French name ). In order to assist them the following amateurs have been chosen:
Pierre Lapierre, Georges Ducon, Claude Labaffe, Ernest Galoche, Paul Moncul, Homere Dalors, Geoffroi-Firmin Peulafenetre and Thierry Ronron. Before the World Cup matches they will all sing the Marseillaise in jogging track suit with a beret on their heads and a baguette under the arm.

Allons Enfants de la Patriiiiieuuuuuh, le jour de gloire eeeeesssttt arriveeeeee...

Have a nice day
Alex

Especially for my pals Marko and Robert, lucky dads whose daughters are in their late teens:

A girl asks her boyfriend to come over Friday night and have dinner
with her parents. This being a big event, the girl tells her boyfriend that
after dinner, she would like to go out and "do it" for the first time.

Well, the boy is ecstatic, but he has never done it before, so he
takes a trip to the pharmacist to get some protection. The pharmacist helps
the boy for about an hour. He tells the boy everything there is to know about
protection and doing it. At the register, the pharmacist asks the boy
how many he'd like to buy; a 3-pack, a 10-pack, or a family pack. The boy
insists on the family pack because he thinks he will be very busy, it
being his first time and all.

That night, the boy shows up at the girl's parent's house and meets
his girlfriend at the door. "Oh I'm so excited for you to meet my parents,
come on in." The boy goes inside and is taken to the dinner table where the
girl's parents are seated. The boy quickly offers to say grace and
bows his head. A minute passes, and the boy still deep in prayer with
his head down. Ten minutes pass and still no movement from the boy.

Finally, after 20 minutes with his head down, the girlfriend leans over and
whispers to her boyfriend, "I had no idea you were so religious."

The boy turns and whispers back, "I had no idea your father was a
pharmacist."
