Sounds Like The Punchline to a Joke From About 2003

Remember when France was referred to as "quiche-eating surrender monkeys" because of their unwillingness to support the invasion of Iraq?  From the August 13, 2013 Daily Telegraph:
The raiders broke into Cafe@Marshalls in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, in the early hours to get their hands on some food.
But when police surrounded the premises, they armed themselves with knives and a five-hour siege ensued.
Angela Marshall, who runs the cafe with her husband, said: ''Apparently they were hungry and wanted some quiche.
''There was a little bit of money in the till, but I think they just wanted food and then it got out of hand.''

It's "cheese eating surrender monkeys". The line is from The Simpsons.
