Angry Birds West of Ukraine … Hungry Bear East of Crimea


OK, Angela, let’s do it your way, if Vladimir is OK

Nobody knows what is happening in Ukraine, or Crimea, which are somewhere near Sochi, the last Russian Winter Olympic Games place, but frankly, who cares about what European language the local people speak there, or elsewhere in Europe ?


Angry Birds West, Hungry Bear East …

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.


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”.

Let's Go

Smarter Cats Wear Smarter Hats

Smart Cat

Sometimes, even same oldschool cats need to think different. They must wear different hats for that. But that hat has to remain smart.

Different hat, same cat

Sometimes, even brainy cats need to wear really silly hats. But why shouldn’t that hat be smart ?


Now and then, real cats must wear real men’s red hats, like that hat or not. But that hat has to worn a smart way.

Cat Cow-Boy Hat

And when weather gets real cold, better buy and wear an appropriate hat, that’s what smart cats say.

Christmas Cats Hats

Only unsmart cats, don’t know about hat.

Nice Hats

That’s all a real cool cat has to think-sing about hat today.

Cool Cat

Bonus : it pretty much looks like it, doen’t it ?


European Fat Cats Suck ? And, they Drink, into the Bargain !

Fat Cat speak fast, eat fast, drink too ... fast

European Fat cats eat too much without thinking about the future of their children. They drink what they should export instead of thinking about whatever paradox that doesn’t work. And they seem pretty serious about sinking with their privileges.

Professional politicians are still doing good, year after year.

Always Xmas for fat_cats doing politics

Ecologist and other social (democrat ?) activists have learnt fast (fast cats ?)

Fat-cat after overdose of chili con carne

Banksters have been among the best adapted to the Euro environment.

Money fatcat

Well known Euro artists are attempting good enough (though they are nothing compared to English singing or playing global stars, not to mention soccer players with German cars or tennis retirees with Swiss chalets and accounts) but they sometimes lack talent and/or don’t train and work enough.


Very watched (loved or hated, who cares as long as Paris talks ?) Depardieu is fat, too, but it is not the same Euro-Money Cat story. Not all people looking like fatcats, or even really being fatcats too some extent, are real Euro Fat Cats, the kind that kill their parents, f… their friends, never paid (more) taxes (than politicians), have been living in Ireland (like the unknown but screaming self-called writer Houellebecq), Patagonia (like maybe you know who, but I never remember the name of that other French screamer with a beard sometimes, sometimes not) or elsewhere like Gstaad (by the way, how is Johnny doing these days ?), Geneva (Montecarlo is not appopriate for French) or anywhere not too far, but not too close either,  from La Bastille (byzeway, where is Yannick these days ?) and have a nice Monday whatever end of other worlds (in French : “la faim dans le monde des autres”).


One should not listen to Sardou or other French screamers like old politicians doing show-business or real business when growing still older, neither young show-business or other social activists doing politics when growing old enough to drive a car, being appointed ministers of unserious issues nobody cares about in France like culture, women, justice, digital economy, housing or nature, or cook a chili con carne themselves,  when they sing or talk or scream about Frenchonomics (meaning in normal XXIst century globish “economics that may work sur un malentendu with a lot of so French sens de l’humour”) , “égalité” (meaning in English “what is yours should be mine”) or other Euro-issues (meaningless nowadays), if one is not a French masochist. But reading, and thinking, may held avoid sinking into the ridiculous like Titanic or France, as the French (even ministers and other politicians) say when they haven’t smoked too much cannabis, and think when they are sober (which happens more than Xmas, when normal years used to be normal).


But anyway, who cares today about what and where French European Fat Cats will eat  and drink tomorrow, if any (or for Xmas, if any) ?
