Fire destroyed the French Cleaners in Modesto early Wednesday, and later that morning the owners discovered obscene graffiti at their Turlock store and pellet holes in a window of the Ceres store.
The destruction and damage came on the eve of the U.S.-led attack on Iraq, for which the United States tried and failed to get French support at the United Nations.
To quote a recent AIM session:
HunterVampireBob: france = *** wholes
SJWiley: typically, but then again, we can be too
HunterVampireBob: yes like the french cleaners thing
SJWiley: see, u don't have to love the french, but still not hate them
What I meant to say there, was that even if one's alliance can be acting in a fairly hostile manner, demonizing them does no good whatsoever. In fact, it makes us look like the jerks.
When we were all on the "let's try and erase every vestige of Frenchiness from the U.S.A." bandwagon (are we still?), I thought that the Statue of Liberty could be used as an example of pro bono, undeniable goodwill between our two nations, but apparently not.
I'd rather not expend any energy on a rediculous website which I'm sure is a joke, a swell and clever parody of the unneeded enmity entre nous. Let's hope at least that that is the case. posted by Steve
