Junk(ies) in #Paris #France ? No comment …

Never mind the French … garbage in the streets.

Its smell is actually better than the stinking cigares on café terrasses, the toxic diesel particles in the streets (especially for kids and dogs and dwarves with their nose lower, and possibly better, than ours), and the dirty hands of too many French (politicians, but not only).

Besides, after a few decades of French style socialism “à la Saint-Germain des Prés”, many French, especially Parisians without subsidized housing and a job in the administration, football or the glamour business, have no better choice for food than picking up rotten cherries, disposed caviar and other junk food left by the richer tourists and more famous sociali(s)tes.

Vive la France (de gauche caviar de maintenant) !

No comment, indeed.

Lol #TTIPLeaks #TaftaLeaks by #GreenPeace

I usually don’t give a damn when 40 year-old students or so called engaged citizens working with ONGs protest against this or that, because democracy and civilisation are not noisy ungrownups and subsidized tax free activists, but I’m all the more happy about the TTIPLeaks, since this may help save good food and decent European civilization for a little while more.

Don’t spit in (neither at) #Paris, neither (at) Beaujolais Nouveau !

Some dislike Paris (and/or France, and/or the so called “French Way of Life), others just cannot stand wine (and/or friendship, happiness, love …) and some spit (or worse) as a matter of principle when they see beauty or drink Beaujolais Nouveau …

giphy-8

Let them spit (but elsewhere, if possible) at all they (dis)like !
