I love France. I love their champagne and I love Paris. Like most Americans, however, I definitely chuckled when the Simpsons referred to the French as "cheese eating surrender monkeys." I enjoy jokes about the French battle flag being a white cross on a white background. I didn't expect the French to join in on the joke by showing up to the Olympics wearing chicken hats.
At all the venues, I've seen French fans wearing chicken hats like that one. Apparently it is supposed to be a french cockerel, the national symbol of France. I'm sticking with chicken hat.
