    Question about the French Rooster

    What is up with the Rooster? When my wife and I were in France we noticed that there were a lot of Rooster pictures and statues. And on my wife's soccer jersey it also has a little French Rooster. Just curious on why everything, that I've come accross in the States, that is French has a rooster on it?

    There was no immunity to cuckoo ideas on Earth.
    Here was the reason human beings could not reject ideas because they were bad: "Ideas on Earth were badges of friendship or enmity.
    Their content didn't matter. Friends agreed with friends, in order to express friendliness. Enemies disagreed with enemies, in order to express enmity.

    Wiki : Its origin appears to be from the play on words between the Latin name for the bird (Gallus gallus) and Gaul (Gallia), the Roman name for most of what is now France.

    Voila, voili, voilou...Toujours sur Wikipedia, il y avait une historique plus complète dans le temps et l'Histoire du Coq Français, mais pas de traduction en Anglais, donc je n'ai pas posté le lien, seulement le basique avec traduc'.
