Because of budget cuts, the annual million-dollar bash held for Bastille Day in France will be cut considerably. In related news, French Prime Minister Francois Fillon asked Christian Blanc, “minister for Greater Paris,” to repay the cost of $15,000 worth of Cohibas he bought for the office.
Mr. Blanc only smoked one or two, so far, he claims, so he only owes the government five grand. This brings up a number of interesting points: Bastille Day celebrations are cheap and I definitely want a box of Cohibas in my office. If I had one back when I was working at Burger King, I’m sure morale would have improved exponentially.
