    French dialogue, as per Google Translate, 7-18-2011:
    Zonker: Or are you so provincial that you can’t even recognize a French name?
    Mark: Let me ask you something: why do you think we liberated France in 1945?
    Zonker: Be careful! We liberated France, for it is free! Free of foreign domination! Get it?
    Mark: But loyalty no longer seems to go in that direction! After 9/11, French headlines said “Today, we are all Americans”. If terrorists had destroyed the Eiffel Tower, would you cry “Today, we are all French”?
    Mark: Of course not! And do you know why?
    Zonker: Why, Mark?
    Mark: Because you are jingoistic, self-regarding conquer-monkeys!

    And the dialogue in the throw-away top-right panel.
    Mark: There! Zonker: Damn them!
