French Have to Fake Vacations

It turns out, even with 7 weeks of paid holidays, that the French can’t afford to go on vacation. Well Boo-Fricken-Hoo, Maybe if they tried working more than a few hours a week and get the unions to release the strangle hold they have on the country they could do better than %10 unemployment. My favorite quote from the news story is this,
“The vacation is a potent symbol in French society, a visible sign of a certain social standing,” well so is smelling bad and being rude. How weak is a country when they truck in sand to put next to a river to make the people, that can’t afford to go out of town on vacation, feel like they’ve gone out of town. You know if the French wouldn’t be so scared to work, they might be able to survive without taking advantage of U.N. humanitarian efforts.

I like our American way, where only the rich people get this treatment.

No really, I do.

I'm not being sarcastic.

I agree. With only the rich people smelling bad and being rude (Moore), it makes America far more pleasant than France.

You know it is hard work being sweaty, stinky and all those rude complaints about the U.S. just don't pop into their heads!
The only people more gay than the French are French-Canadians, who are just mini-me's anyways. OUT
