A study by the Paris School of Economics shows that despite having all the things needed for a good life, the French are among the unhappiest people on the planet.

I blame Sartre.

That's because they have to deal with the French all day long.


I'm surprised to read that France even has a school of economics. They seldomly act like they are familiar with the subject.

I blame the Visigoths and the fact that their women don't shave their underarms.

Too much fromage. They're all constipated.

Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres.

Bewitched, bothered, and bemildred.

'Twas always my belief that "Omnia Gallia in tres partes divisa est" was more correct; seems to fit usual word ordering better.

De Bello Gallico, Book I, Ch. 1. Roughly, All Gaul is divided into three parts ...

Actually, closer to "Gaul is, in its entirety, divided ..." etc.

De Bello also contains my favorite tag, ... libenter homines id quod volunt credunt.

Even back then: "Gallae semper bummedout sunt."

Surrender is imminent

Are y'all a Pogo fan, Omni?

If you mean Walt Kelly's Pogo, I learned to read on it. My friends and family still wonder what I mean when I say, "Rowrbazzle!"
