I am in the process of testing Linux software in advance of the proposed changeover on 10th May.
I am testing a program that will allow me to post a blog direct from my Linux Desktop but as yet I haven’t tested it. Here is the test. I do apologise if there is nothing very interesting, but so as not to waste your time completely, I will tall a little joke:
An Englishman is having breakfast, in Paris , one morning (coffee, croissants, bread, butter and jam) when a Frenchman, chewing bubble-gum, sits down next to him The Englishman ignores the Frenchman who, nevertheless, starts a conversation.
Frenchman: ‘You English folk eat the whole bread??’
Englishman (in a bad mood): ‘Of course.’
Frenchman: (after blowing a huge bubble) ‘We don’t. In France , we only eat what’s inside. The crusts we collect in a container, rec ycle it, transform them into croissants and sell them to England ‘ The Frenchman has a smirk on his face.
The Englishman listens in silence.
The Frenchman persists: ‘Do you eat jam with the bread??’
Englishman: ‘Of Course.’
Frenchman: (cracking his bubble-gum between his teeth and chuckling).
‘We don’t. In France we eat fresh fruit for breakfast, then we put all the peels, seeds, and leftovers in containers, recycle them, transform them into jam, and sell the jam to England ‘
After a moment of silence, The Englishman then asks: ‘Do you have sex in France ?’
Frenchman: ‘Why of course we do’, he says with a big smirk.
Englishman: ‘And what do you do with the condoms once you’ve used them?’
Frenchman: ‘We throw them away, of course.’
Englishman: ‘We don’t. In England , we put them in a container, recycle them, melt them down into bubble-gum, and sell them to France ‘
