Sarkozy stuns nation by actually doing something.

The ballcock must yield, through me, to the will of the French People!

President of the French Republic Nicolas Sarkozy has stunned the French political establishment by stepping out from his hectic schedule of media appearences and making grand vague speeches full of intangible undeliverable promises to fix a broken toilet in a school he was visiting in Nantes yesterday.

The talented son of a Hungarian immigrant who had a meteoric rise to the Elysee Palace had just finished delivering a speech promising that France would have a man on Mars by Christmas when the headmistress of the school casually made a remark about her toilet being broken.

” This will not do! Let us examine the situation!” The president declared, where he then proceeded to lead a delgation into the bathroom, and removed the cover of the cistern. After a quick examination, he removed his jacket, rolled up his sleeves, and proceeded to readjust the ballcock which had become loose. A quick test flush revealed that the toilet was now fixed, and after a round of applause during which the president washed his hands, he departed, announcing his hope to bring peace to the Middle East before dinner.

Jason,
I have to admit that when I first glanced over this post I thought it was true. I’m trying top decide whether that means I’m a gullible fool or justified in not to batting an eyelid when the French Premiere does something completely bizarre!

Hope your keeping well.

Aisling.

You’re not gullible. Sarko is just bizarre. Let’s be honest: If he were made of chocolate, he’d eat himself.
