Well, we've done it now.
According to a story on NPR this morning, after all those years of nagging at the French about smoking, and exporting McDonald's to Paris, it's finally happened: French women are getting fat.
And not only the women. The men are too. It turns out fewer French people are lighting up, leading (as it always seems to) to the munchies, and they're muching fatty foods. Result- the French are getting pudgy.
My only question is who the Hell could have persuaded the French, who are known for their advanced taste-buds, that a McBurger is fit to eat? Last time I had one it tasted like grilled cardboard, albeit grilled cardboard packing about 60 grams of saturated fat. So who's responsible? Has Bill Clinton been hanging out on the Champs-Elysees lately? Are they going to be renaming it the Chomps-Elysees?
Audrey Tautou says "Non!"
