The article starts with “rampaging French youth.” My eyes widen in disbelief. I can’t believe what I’m reading.

The Socialist paradise of New Gaul has been all in a tizzy these past six months. I think this is the start of a new burning fad amongst the youth of Paris. It most certainly could not be their ineffective, antiquated social set-up.

This Google search says it all. Type “French Military victories” as the search term, click “I’m feeling lucky,” and here’s what you get.

That search is one of my favorite French jokes. Classic.
