Thank you, France. Thank you. Every single time I think we have hit rock bottom, I just look over at France and I suddenly feel better about things.
From now on, whenever I read some story about a football coach getting fired for making his players run, or whenever I can’t find a 24oz soda on the island of Manhattan, or any time Barack Obama starts talking, I will just go to Google and check up on the latest news from France. It’s an instant pick-me-up.
