French Kissing

We here at Burro Hall - long-time proponents of the 28-hours work week - want to a send a Bonne Bastille Jour shout-out to our legions of French viewers! Okay, we're probably talking about the low single digits here, but then the Bastille only held seven prisoners when it was "liberated," and you're still beating your chests about it 230 years later. Try to take a compliment, you fucking French assholes.

Since the storming of the Bastille itself is a bit of a non-event (much like the Battle of Puebla, if we're being honest), lets us instead sing the praises of the nation's ex-groupie- turned-First-Lady, Carla Bruni. You have to love any nation where the First Lady, questioned about a recent weight gain, can attribute it to excessive beer-drinking, and everyone's, like, perfectly cool with it. Also, this is the First Lady of France naked. Must we even say the name Laura Bush here?

Sorry. We should have warned you that we'd be planting that image in your head. You can get rid of it watching this video of Paris as seen from a Ferrari at 150 mph.

That's the ONLY way to see Paris!

Coincidentally, those were Princess Diana's last words.

One of my favorite home videos. How many red lights does he go through? If I remember correctly, it was filmed at 5:00 a.m., so fortunately most of the Parisians were home (not necessarily their own) sleeping off there wine induced hang-overs. By the way, have to admire the new French PM!

Other than capitulating immediately to the Nazis, it's probably the most irresponsible thing a Parisian has ever done.

I'd like to see him try that in a Peugeot. Vive l'Italie!
