Well, in general, many jokes were made at the expense of their highnesses King George V and King Louis XIV. Apparently, neither of them appreciated soap and warm water too much.

I suppose Anglos and Gallics share it equally.

Playing tennis after midnight is obscene.

Yes, but I'll bet some Presidents have been lax bathers as well, we just don't hear about it.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

It's a ridiculous accusation, especially when made by Americans many of whom live in trailers.

Of course when it comes to the French attitudes - most would agree that what stinks is their minds.

Is Monday a Bank Holiday in England? Why are so many of the Brits up so late? The USO must kill you like the AO kills me (and others in the US, I'm sure).

Is this where this thread becomes prescient and after the result, I get to say something like "never in doubt"?

Not a Bank Holiday, no (that was last week)

I'm just up and suffering for my tennis.

It has to be done

I'm a post-grad student, I get to stay up late pretty much all the time. This will change.

In the course of condemning the use of one stereotype, you managed to insult two other cultures via more stereotypes - all in one concise post.

Congrats.

I didn't know Robredo and Gulbis both went on court drunk.
