French Cheater, Moi?
( published 21st February 2002 )
In politics I have already briefly explained how just days before Jacques Chirac confirmed his participation to France's presidential elections next May, a certain Mr Schuller, disappeared in the Carribean since 1995, came back to France to "make some revelations" about corruption in Mr Chirac's party. Funnily we haven't heard from him in the papers for more than 3 weeks.
And, what a coincidence, a Mr Teulade has been involved in corruption stories, this time in the socialist party, just days before Mr Lionel Jospin announced his candidacy to president.
And finally, the launch of Metro in Paris ( a newspaper distributed for free in some capitals of Europe ) has been postponed because members of the French union of newspapers refused to print it in France. When it was printed and distributed from nearby Luxembourg, several newspaper stands were destroyed by those union members.Nono this was not in the 30's, this was yesterday!!! Meantime a rival FRENCH paper was distributed in Marseille's centre...Nobody arrested until now,...and nobody will be...
Welcome to France, symbol of free democracy! If anyone of you wants more details on the above call me... it's my hobby to read those articles!
Have a nice day
A guy is sitting quietly reading his paper when his wife sneaks up behind him and whacks him on the head with a frying pan. "What was that for?" he says. "That was for the piece of paper in your trouser pocket with the name Marylou written on it," she replies. "Two weeks ago when I went to the races, Marylou was the name of one of the horses I bet on," he explains. She looks satisfied and apologises. Three days later he's again sitting in his chair reading when she nails him with an even bigger frying pan, knocking him out cold. When he comes to, he says, "What the hell was that for?" "Your horse phoned."
