I freely admit that I have never understood the French fascination with Jerry Lewis. I always found him to be awkward, very un-funny, not a little stupid and silly in a not-good way. The best thing about Jerry Lewis was his partner, Dean Martin.

Since I was about seven years old, I've felt the same way. Before that, I thought he was really funny.
