frogs, google and French stereotypes

Being curious, I've typed the other day "french woman" then "french man" in google. And that's what I've got in first place :



lol, well... now I think of it I don't know any French man among my friends having a moustache (only Germans can do that :P), or a beret.
As for women, our French women reputation is safe with such pretty one I reckon :-)

The other day I was talking about my "candy froggie" handle referring to the frog legs eaters that we are (well, I doubt any of us even eat frog legs once a year!)
Stereotypes are funny, sometimes surprising, but you always learn from them. Do you know or are you aware of the stereotypes of your own country? Do they make you uncomfortable or angry?

Besides what's listed on the link above, we French are also often said to be arrogant, are we? I think I'm always right, but not because I'm French, just because **shrugging**, I'm right!

If I remember French people are said to stink because (of the English spreading terrible ideas! lol), because centuries ago, people, aristocrats did not bath for fear of, I don't remember. Centuries ago. lol
I swear we're supa clean and smell wonderfully, well, I do at least lol

French women have the reputation to not shave and at the same time to be sophisticated?? I have no idea lol. I do shave and don't know if I'm sophisticated.

Do you think of other stereotypes about the French?

(oh and while looking for stuff about frogs, I've found that lil jewel! lol
Frogs can be scary too -hoping my devilish frown can work here-
