3. The French shun fast food
Because the French believe they make the greatest food in the world (a myth Eatwell deemed “partly true"), it stands to reason that they would turn their berets up at a McRoyal with cheese and derisively refer to Americans as a bunch of “hamburger eaters”, right? Or maybe, just maybe, they are actually McDonald's second largest market in the world. Yep, 7 out of 10 meals in France eaten outside of the home are consumed at fast food joints. Daaaamn. Although the French Mickey D’s do source all of their products from French farms, offer waiter service and macaroons, and even top their burgers with local cheese.
4. Every French bathroom has a bidet
The word bidet is actually French for “pony.” And, as you no doubt learned from listening to Ginuwine, before it was used for after-bathroom cleansing, the bidet was used as an after-doing-it wash for women. In fact, before the advent of the pill, the bidet was considered a de-facto form of birth control (which might also explain why the French have such large families -- another myth deemed true). Today, only 42 percent of French homes and 25 percent of hotel rooms have bidets.
