happy bastille day

"Going to war without France is like going deer hunting without your accordion." --Norman Schwartzkopf

Today, in honor of the French, I intend to: take a two-and-a-half hour lunch break, get a French pedi, and surrender [my workday] early. Perhaps I'll even sample some Roquefort cheese on al baguette and mix a gin martini with a hint of le vermouth? The frogs may be misguided socialist braggarts, but damn if they don't know how to eat and drink.

Here's some Bastille Day humor (something I never thought I'd say) from Someecards.com.

On a related note ... Andrew Breitbart ran this story yesterday: Pushy French are world's worst tourists: study. Viva la France!


  1. Happy French Day! I will be sure to drink some wine in honor of. :)

  2. I'll see if I can convince Aidan to eat some Freedom Fries tonight ... in honor of his Aunt Belly.
