You know what? I never once noticed a single Frenchman complain during German occupation. Nope, not a one. They were all happy, sipping fine wines and singing cabaret. They never sang the blues, nor did I hear even a single "le sigh." Yessir, that was before socialism and redistribution of wealth. The good old days.

this might be hard to believe but Russians also can be sarcastic.
i think you might have missed it on this one.
French soccer player. Then French fan and high profile NBA player Tony Parker do the arm gesture.
Sarcastic part was about the French enjoying the occupation but then it ends with idiots. Not idiots for enjoying the occupation because let's be serious, who enjoys being occupied? Except save for a hotel room or for a commercial real estate company who makes money when a building or unit et al are occupied.
Idiots for them doing the gesture.
But I do appreciate the effort. Hopefully this was off the cuff and you didn't have this response saved somewhere and when someone just happened to mention the French being happy about being occupied you just cut and pasted it. Which doesn't seem like you.
So in summary. Arsen is actually on your side about this.
