A little help about stereotypes !

Hi everybody !
I don't know if I'm on the right forum to ask this question, so sorry in advance !
I'm doing kind of a poll that will illustrate a presentation about stereotypes and I have a question for you, my english speaker friends

When you think about France and French, what are the first things that come to your mind ?

Thanks in advance

Cigarettes. And girls that don't shave their armpits.

I think of Paris.

And then I think, "Man, I really want to go to Paris."

I think avant garde; arty films & books, music and clothes etc. And I think of Edith Piaf

Cowards that surrender at the slightest hint of danger.

Eating snails

And uh... a dude in a striped shirt and a beret, with a mustache, riding a bicycle with French bread in a basket on the front

And I think a lot of French people are snooty.


Personally, I've always been a little amused by the way people seem to hate the French. I used to want to make a parody of those "Kiss me, I'm Irish" shirts, by making one that said "Hate me, I'm French."
