French Bashing is Good, but bad American Coffee comes more often

The good news is, French Coffee (and delicious French bashing) is available in most decent luncheonettes in America.

The bad news is,  American Coffee is much more widespread (and well deserved) in most globenglish speaking places.

The real bad news is, for coffee lovers in the Americas, the French do it better (and deserve it more) in Paris (not only coffee, among other things, but French bashing).

Let’s bash !

Should the Tour de #France be seeking a red carpet elsewhere like other French businesses ?

Bicycle Race

Depardieu from Paris to Russia ; French soldiers from Afghanistan to Tchad ;  French car and other industries to Morocco ; Paris-Dakar raid from “French” Africa to Patagonia and Tour de France in Corsica : so what, now, if Armstrong talks ?

England seems attractive, all the more since most French sportspeople already live there if they can speak English, but it is not an option for real summer bicycle races, due to weather conditions, and because the British advertisers are busy with the Wimbledon tennis tournament in July.

Oldshool Bicycling

One needs a glamorous country with a high tolerance for drugs habits of outdoors professional politicians sportspeople (otherwise, real performers may not join), cheap wireless internet and a respect for environment (otherwise, real advertisers could withdraw).

Clean Bike

Too bad if Paris is no longer an option due to that drug thing : they are 100% glamour, 100%  professional and 100% ready for the 100th bicycle Tour de France, there. Besides, many hotels propose cheaper rates for early checkout.

Pro-Cycling Paris Style

Corsica could be an option : it’s green, beautiful, and French ; the roads are euro-subsidized and the water is drinkable in most places ; and people don’t seem to be as drug-friendly there as in continental Europe. But it may take some time for the people there to learn French, not to mention English ; the local gangsters should refrain from shooting (no, not shouting, this would be considered offensive, not polite, in Corsica) at each other during the competition (and not shoot at business people’s German cars when the French media is not busy with a war or football elsewhere), and it should be confirmed they can find a decent floating hotel for the international media and French politicians, now that they have crashed their flagship Napoleon Bonaparte in the harbour or Marseille.

After all, as roads in Africa are too hectic, the drinking water is not reliable in Chinindia, and Brazil is busy with football and the Olympics, let it be simple and let’s deal with Qatar, another proud leader of global “Francophonie”, as usual in France these days.
