Where would American comedy be without snooty French people to make fun of? It’d be a lot of stand-up jokes about the difference between men and women, that’s where.

And where would French comedy be without Jerry Lewis to help them make fun of goofy Americans? It’d be a lot of incomprehensible door-slamming stage plays with sexy maids, that’s where.

You see, it’s an uneasy relationship, but we do need one another. And that’s the short definition of Franco-American relations. (Insert your own Spaghetti-Os joke here.)
