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.

fat-cat-in-pot-attempt

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”).

Fat-Cat--30630

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).

Quon-en-parle-plus-sardou

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) ?

#FF @ Xi Jinping, who joined the G2 Club. Hopefully the World Managers will accept a G5 board

The quiet victory of Xi Jinping in China is not as twitted and buzzed as President Obama’s clean sweep of Mitt Romney between a storm and a snowfall, but the cook of the World’s Savers Club must prepare world food for two (or more) now. Fast.

But as we have (in most parts of the world) reached the XXIst century, full club membership should of course be authorized for ladies.

And as a matter of gender balance, a second Lady is advisable for dinner.

But of course, a Gang of Four may not be everybody’s cup of tea in the Club. Then, who else ?

Ladies first.

And why shouldn’t that be enough to do the job, folks ?

Provided the 5 don’t forget about nature, climate, biodiversity and all that stuff the ecolocrats discuss once a year on the beach with a daiquiri or Champagne.

Provided the 5 don’t forget about peace, economics, education, employment, security, food, health and all that stuff our local leaders should take care of but apparently can’t cope with (especially in a sustainable, win-win way).

Provided, that at least one of the 5 twits now and then in English about where we all are aiming at, now that e-world-democracy is here to stay.

Tea (green please), coffee (black of course) or wine (French if possible), whatever works as long as we can have Champagne (French of course) for Xmas and prepare for a Happy New Year 2013 …

Frenchonomics : Good News, We Know the French Paradox is a Fake ; Bad News, The French Don’t

French Ducks and Geese are happy : US ban on Foie Gras is good for their health and longevity. The bad news is, the French will eat enormous quantities of Foie for Christmas and New-Year even if they are bankrupt. Because this is the French “tradition”.

Frenchonomics “à la Sauce #Hollande” in Châlons en #Champagne

France is at crossroads between the Wine, or “ClubMed” Europe, with Portugal, Greece, Spain, Italy … and  Beer, or Serious Euroland, with Germany, Finland, the Netherlands … Now, President Hollande knows where to go, but he needs a scapegoat.

Everything is cool under the sun in #Paris #France

France may be the best place to live happily under the sun. Some people (with a red carpet) say, it may not last forever. Some say, it may not last for long. But as long as the French manage with Frenchonomics and borrow money for free, it’s cool.

Some say, there ‘s nothing like a free loan lunch, and one needs to borrow a lot to afford French retaurants. Anyway, it’s still holiday time in France, always look on the bright sun salt sight side of France life and enjoy Paris-Plage as long as it lasts.

Please, kindly click on the French cat to read more about it in French (but never awake the sleeping cat, especially the fat kind, of course), or just find a way to bypass it and follow the beach reading in English.
