A short, hilarious primer to modern France. Dental hygienists are illegal, yet the French exchange a staggering 184 billion kisses every year and many more crazy little French quirks.
The French live in a feverish state of fantasy. People are paid to pretend to work, pretend to strike, and generally think work causes depression and suicide. Dental hygienists are illegal, yet the French exchange a staggering 184 billion kisses every year. While preaching liberte, the State forbids everything, is run by one school's alumni, messes up over two thirds of the economy. Despite his rhetoric, even Macron has made not an iota difference. Did you know that.... the French eat more McDonald's hamburgers than anywhere else in the world; pretend to be literary even as Fifty Shades of Gray is France's best-selling book, ever...; and there is much more!
