I see it works in practice, but does it work in theory?

Re: The French figured it out back then....

Do you know why the French stink?

So the blind can hate them also.

I would love to smell like red wine and cigarettes instead of the gear oil, Ding Dong thing I have going...

Ladies--I'm still available.

Re: The French figured it out back then....

The camper car is silly because it's from a Jaques Tati movie.
He's the big goofy guy in the trench coat.
His speciality was making fun of 'modern' 50s life with over the top stuff like this.
His other movies include 'Mr Hulot's Holliday' and 'Mon Oncle (My Uncle)'.
