Chickens kill Fox in farm

Even though it's free range live in a coop basically drives chickens insane which ramps up their aggressiveness.

One might or might now need B-category divisions to mop up the remnants after the A-category duck divisions made the initial push.
Uh huh. This is just symbolic revenge against Rommel, the Desert Fox, who smeared the ducks into foie gras.

Or does the rewriting of French history into proud and noble warriors forget that incident of cheese-eating surrender monkeying (hey, the trope came from somewhere, and it was not entirely unearned), where half of Rommel's division pushing forward resulted in the surrender of more than 30,000 French troops, many of them after encountering a lone Rommel in an armored car after his escort panzer suffered mechanical failure?

Using a tiny fox as an effigy, while placing it up against radicalized war-chickens, is just a sad way of trying to take back the inner French shame. The fowl are strong, really! :rolleyes:

Nah, we avenged THAT one quite soon enough, in Bir-Hakeim, showing Rommel that a 10 to 1 numerical superiority wasn't enough to fight sailors in the desert. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Bir_Hakeim

  • Failure 1: did not attempt to pun into Bird-Hakeim
  • Failure 2: French needed help from the Ottomans, whose aged fortifications were far superior to the French-designed Maginot line
  • Failure 3: it was primarily 13 DBLE, a force comprised of foreigners, not a native French force (and not sailors), which took the day
  • Failure 4: a battle ending with a retreat instead of surrender is not so great a step up, especially when you have two years to prepare your "quite soon enough) comeback tour
...and you still needed the Russians to put enough pressure on Germany that they were forced to pull out of the theater. Fox still has you whipped decades later, even with revisionism on your side.

Bah, Russia could only manage to not collapse like a rotten house thank to Normandie-Niemen and that one US character on the Eastern Front in one of the Call of Duty games, as we all know. You commies should thank us for not speaking German now!

Sounds about right, at least as far as history is told these days.

Those of us who have been around the block a few times, we know that Gandhi is a bloodthirsty bastard that will kill everyone if he gets his hands on nukes.

Good, I see you're back on the track of doubleplusgoodthink.
