Vive La France! Happy Bastille Day, Mes Amis!

Some Americans like to take potshots at France. And while I find the phrase "Surrender Monkey" totally hilarious, it totally ignores how bad ass the French Resistance was during WWII.

It's Bastille Day, which... you know, the French had an odd time of it deciding how things would run after they figured out how to get out from under the boot heel of their oppressors, but today we're celebrating a day in the move toward freedom for a people.

And the French were never more awesome than when played by Hollywood actors sticking it to the Nazis. In song.

Thanks to Bully for the inspiration.
