French Actress Is Incredibly……French And Actressy

Posted by bmac on March 2, 2008

Ahh…French women. Actresses. Two great tastes that taste great together. A bi-fecta of self congratulatory ignorance. Add an Oscar to that and you get the perfect storm of ego-centric retardation.

Such is the case with Oscar winner Marion Cotillard, who joins the truther party, keeping company with respected fellow actors Charlie Sheen and Rosie.

Normally I wouldn’t care at all, because I’ve never heard of this broad. I didn’t watch the Oscars or see her film because I’m straight, but she said some funny stuff.

Referring to the two passenger jets being flown into the Twin Towers, Cotillard said:

“We see other towers of the same kind being hit by planes. Are they burned? They [sic] was a tower, I believe it was in Spain, which burnt for 24 hours. It never collapsed. None of these towers collapsed. And there [in New York], in a few minutes, the whole thing collapsed.

I can just hear the way she’s struggling with English to make her stupid point. It’s almost cute. Like when a beauty pageant contestant tries to say something smart. I just want to pat her on the head. She does put a new and exciting twist on the conspiracy though:

She added that the towers, planned in the early Sixties, were an outdated “money-sucker” that would have cost more to modernise than to rebuild altogether, which is why they were destroyed.

She said: “It was a money-sucker because they were finished, it seems to me, by 1973, and to re-cable all that, to bring up-to-date all the technology and everything, it was a lot more expensive, that work, than destroying them.”

A-ha, it was too expensive to update the buildings that were built waaay back in the 70′s. Well hey, in her defense, “Re-cabling” is a bitch. Everybody knows that. She’s also a Moonie:

She said: “Did a man really walk on the Moon? I saw plenty of documentaries on it, and I really wondered. And in any case I don’t believe all they tell me, that’s for sure.”

She ain’t nobody’s fool. Here’s the interesting part:

But Cotillard, who lives with actor and director Guillaume Canet, frequently tells interviewers she has no interest in money or prestige.

Denying that she had any kind of “Anglo-Saxon ambition”, she said she prefers to “choose roles which suit me”.

Despite her low-key image, Cotillard is an environmental activist who once worked as a spokesman for Greenpeace.

“Anglo Saxon Ambition?” WTF? Is this some new euro-dis I haven’t heard about? Is that some kind of “western imperialism” dealie?

Well, there ya have it. At least she’s hot. Or good thing she’s hot.

Cars In France Now 6% Less Likely To Be Torched!

Posted by bmac on January 3, 2008

I’m really perplexed about this car burning epidemic in France. This New Years Eve,  372 cars were torched, and they seem to be pretty happy about it, since 372 is down from last years 397.  Just take a few minutes and count to 372. That’s a lot of cars to torch in just one night.

“The night was relatively calm, without notable incident, there were very few direct clashes with the security forces,” said a spokesman for the national police.

Without notable incident? Burning 372 cars doesn’t qualify as notable incident? France is in deeper shit than anyone wants to admit if torching only 372 cars in one night is a good thing. Who pays for this stuff? Are those cars insured? If so, aren’t insurance companies starting to get a little pissed off? What does it cost to insure your car in France these days?

At the height of the 2005 riots as many as 1,400 cars were attacked in overnight violence. In protests over President Nicolas Sarkozy election last May, demonstrators set fire to 730 vehicles.

Are there even any cars left in France? What about the firefighters? Have they had about enough of this shit? I just don’t get it.

Police had stepped up their presence on French streets in anticipation of the year-end celebrations and the sale of petrol in cans was banned in some places.

Wow, that was really effective. All that preparation resulted in 25 fewer cars being set ablaze. Great job frog police!
