An Old Canadian In Paris

By aircraft, an 83-year-old Canadian gentleman landed in Paris. The man waited a few minutes at the French customs station to locate his passport in his carry-on luggage.

“You’ve been to France before, monsieur?” sarcastically said the customs officer.

The old guy acknowledged that he had previously visited France. “Then you should be prepared to present your passport.”

The previous time I went here, I didn’t have to display it,” the Canadian explained. “It’s impossible; Canadians must always display their passports while entering France!”

The elder Canadian gave the Frenchman a stern look before softly explaining, “Well, I couldn’t locate any Frenchmen to present it to when I stepped ashore at Juno Beach on D Day in 1944 to help liberate this country.”
