No (French) comment … Who cares about football / soccer anymore, anyway ?

France Football Allemagne #CM2014

We (French) are not amused, but if and when you can’t avoid it …

Keep calmos … and Watch Football on TV #FIFA #Brazil

Calmos (1)

Unless you’re British, Spanish or Croatian (or Brazilian), keep calm, buy some French food, have some French wine, add some French sex if you can’t drink coffee, and you should survive until you can watch the next football match on TV in bed.

Don’t worry, this is just Hollande’s #France

Football France

Don’t worry, if you support another European political team, this is not the new French socialist government at Elysee Palace, only the ongoing (where ?) French “Président de la République”, his assistant (with ball) and some French football apparatchiks.

Don’t worry either if you support another country’s football team, these people and other politicians will be in Brazil at the beginning of the football World Cup, but they will just play and talk politics, eat and drink expensive foods, enjoy the beach and bitches, and come back as fast as possible for their summer holiday in France, when they realize it is winter in Brazil.

Don’t worry, it’s juste nowadays’ France.

Not everybody missed the opportunity to race downhill faster than anybody else under the snow this winter … And François Hollande didn’t go to the Russian Olympic Games, but he has managed to make France drop from Frenchonomics to Frankensteinomics

François Hollande

No comment … yet, but relax, be cool, there’s a press conference by current French President François Hollande Tuesday afternoon (16h30, Palais de l’Elysée, Paris, just in time for the famous French “5 à 7”).

Vive la France !

Let's Go

The Fall of France (according to a Yankee freelance journalist in Newsweek), so what ?

So, the French are falling, according to (an old Yankee lady writer selling papers to Newsweek now and then from her rest place in Paris, as reported in) facebook.

NEWSWEEK-facebook The Fall of France

The Fall … or the … Fool(s) of France ?

But what’s France ? It is about 1% of world’s population, mostly in Europe, many of them catholics, socialists and too fat, either because of too much food, not enough work, or both, most of them only interested in French football (soccer), French politics, usually both.

Vive la France d'Astérix et Obélix les Gaulois

But what’s the point for others ? France is a country with nuclear weapons and an inclination for economic depression, economic socialism, or both. Therefore its crisis, failures, elections, dreams and nightmares matter to countries and people of real world.

Frenchonomics

Their current Leader Maximo (maxi-mots in French) is a nobody, named Hollande (not France, surprisingly enough), but the country was named after an older Gaulois called “de Gaulle”, like the main Paris airport, and the French floating airport, then changed to “France”, nobody really remembers why. But who cares in the rest of the world ? Nobody, except the French.

So what ? Why waste time and energy bashing the French ? As a matter of fact, nobody knows, but it’s fun (if you’re not French), and  if you don’t know why, bash anyway, the French most surely know, as they know everything better than others (or so they trust, like they believe in French socialism, French Football, “Francophonie”,  Santa Claus and other fairy-tales). And as they can’t speak English, nobody will understand  if they happen to complain to somebody who is willing to listen to them.

So, the French (fries) are falling, but it doesn’t matter, nobody cares anymore about French “cuisine”, nowadays, even the French eat pizza, kebab and sushi with their coffee.

One French coffee ; kiss ; fry bashing a Day, keeps the doctor (and the French) away, especially if one drinks French Wine and eats French cheese and foie gras whilst bashing : the civilized Yankees and Brits call it the “French Paradox”.

2014 !

Renaud Favier – January, 6th, 2014 – Facebook Café du matin à Paris

Let's Go

Please don’t tell anybody about France and the French lost Paris … and don’t #LMAO at Hollande

Change in France ...

Yes, we can … make motorbikes in France. But please don’t tell anybody, that only 8 jobs will be created, whereas 800 or more French politicians, including Arnaud Montebourg of course, showed up at the “plant” to drink Champagne, smile and celebrate.
Yes he can !

Yes, French children can go to school sometimes, and they even meet teachers not on strike, sometimes. But please, don’t tell anybody the way we spell “two dwarves” (deux nains), now, after the last spelling reform by a couple of dull guys with big glasses.

Yes the can !

Yes, we can still eat Chabichou Poitou (Mrs Royal’s -the former Mrs Hollande-, homeplace when she is not politicing in Paris) Cheese in France, although we are not sure it’s not made in Germany with Italian milk, as the Germans have become world leaders in cheese too, and the French have now eaten their milk-cows after their white bread, the cakes and  the brioches. But please keep your mouth shut.

Yes he can !

And yes, Hollande can be as “normal”, careful and with a good sense of humour a French professionnal politician as they can be, a former student at French Graduate Business School HEC, and one of the best students of his generation at the ENA, where all future French civil servants, would be expensive TV experts  and ruinous #IRL gurus in Frenchonomics, and most future politicians who can’t speak English (otherwise, they would go study politics and economics at Oxford or Cambridge), neither German (otherwise they would go study democracy and competitiveness in Germany or Switzerland), and cannot count (otherwise, they would study at Polytechnique or in California) are educated (the well known ENA “Promotion Voltaire”, which doesn’t mean Canapé Voltaire, but best seats for leftists, is currently “at work“, if one may say).

Women, Children and careful French first ...

Please, don’t say a word, it might get even worse if the bad, French lawyers (remember Mitterrand and Sarkozy …) come back in the driver’s  seat of France.

Help !

Please, don’t laugh #LMAO either.

Please, help the French save France ! #IRL

Help save French speaking Democracy !

Or maybe better just never mind about Frenchonomics, Frenchvironment, Frenchlitics, French books, French Diplomacy, Frenchlections, French old or new lost wars,  Frenchbungabunga, French football, French food, competitivenesscorruption, and other French, remote, desperate, small Fukushimas, Munichs, and lost Paris of the France we love in spite of all …

frenchonomics

It’s just France and the French as usual, after all. Let’s have a coffee, read a decent eBook, let the crazy ones talk together about France in French, and go back to real business, serious issues, less insane countries and leaders, and more sustainable, decent causes.
