Patrick, this thread is meant to be amusing, the posters are poking fun at themselves not at the French.
Pips on upper left hand corner, in non-English decks
Yes. And after the French Revolution, someone proposed that the lowliest peon, the 1, was worth more than a king. That is why the Ace became the highest card in many games.
Pips on upper left hand corner, in non-English decks
Perhaps this explains why Belgium has not been nearly as successful as its neighbours, at the world championship level.
