French workers (pardon the oxymoron) are in full-blown tantrum again. In an attempt to recapture the lusty allure of murdering their king and queen and any rich person they could find during The French Revulsion more than 200 years ago, workers at 5 companies have kidnapped their bosses and issued the following demand: (Warning, to feel the full effect of being a Frenchman, the following sentence is to be read aloud in your best whiny voice while kicking your feet wildly and shaking your arms to the side and thinking of those greedy, selfish capitalists) "We want more money and we want it NOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW!"
Yes, they are UNION personnel (Ha, didn't catch me saying "workers" again, did ya?). They won't let the bosses leave the facilities until the union thugs get what they want: A Rousseau hardback, a bottle of red, a lump of cheese, a loaf of bread, and a lifetime supply of nothingness and complaining and elan.
In case you think I'm being too harsh on the Gauls (shame on you), almost half of the French public approve of this hostage-taking. It's the same half that would gladly take it up the rear for Obama Dead Eyes -- and then proudly put it on YouTube. The French do love their ejaculations.
