French President François Hollande was in Mexico !

Teotihuacan, Mexico, Avril 11th 2014 afp.com/Alain Jocard

French temporary President François Hollande was seen in Mexico, with a brunette, earlier this month. Some French (medias) wonder, whether he plans to come back at work in France this year, or if he will settle abroad like Charles de Gaulle when in exile in Ireland. But, in fact, nobody cares.

 

“Can he fix France ?”, asks Time magazine. “Yes, we can faster” says … French François Hollande. But who cares ?

Time François Hollande France

No comment. But who cares #IRL, anyway, about France after (or even during) Charles de Gaulle, about yet another French big mouth from Corrèze François Hollande, or about whatever French XXIst century‘s President‘s speeches, be they in English ?

France is a big, somewhat fat, but never big enough, thing, somewhere between Krueger Safari Park and Tivoli Holiday Park

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

Doubt in Hollande’s France ? No way !

Hollande’s France is not a country, where people waste time talking about “Sex of angels” or “chicken and egg”. The French don’t have time for that, because they are so very extremely busy arguing Frencholitics, Frenchonomics, and French “affaires.”

Frencholitics are not for wishi-washi people.

de-gaulle

Frenchonomics are not for half-hearted sissies.

frenchonomics

French “affaires” are not for romantic business people.

 

Hollande’s France is no country for oldschool doubting men.

Cogito ergo sum

Let Hollande’s France think

When it’s Tea Time in Europe, it may be Brunch Time East Coast, and Breakfast Time on Pacific Coast. But it’s Always “Café du Matin à Paris” Time

les-jardins-plein-ciel

Of course, not everybody everywhere wants to drinks tea, when it’s “tea time” in Paris, France … And of course, the people who love  “Café du matin à Paris” are not just “anybody”. But the good news is, it’s free to like it anywhere, everywhere, anytime.
