A French Page Boy's Moral Crusade:
Thou Shalt Not Steal
Vous Ne Déroerez Point

25 February 2009
 

When a French page boy tried to sell some stolen goods, he was caught red-handed by police. "Sir, I'm absolutely ready to give myself to the rightful owner of a couple of bronze water faucets my family stole from her bathroom," the page boy said behind his half-rabbit half-rat bronze mask. "The only thing I ask is, for the owner to respect the human rights of my grandpa who killed her son during the armed robbery, to acknowledge the freedom of my partner if he fancies to rape her daughter, to give liberty to her husband if he wishes to have an affair with me, and to welcome my dear friend, a professional thief, to work as her doorkeeper."

The page boy's grandpa or great grandpa or great great greandpapa or equivalent marches with his armed mates in 1860 into the Forbidden City built by Chinese Emperors dating back to early 15th century.

A French Style Lip Service

The road from Avenue des Champs Elysees to my house was in bad condition. Every day, I dodged potholes on the way to work, so I was relieved when one morning to see construction crew working on the road and a big red sign next to them erected by the Paris City Council that read: We Care About Your Walking Rights.

Later, on my way home, I noticed the men were gone and no improvement in the road. Where the crew had been working stood a new, bright-yellow sign with the words, "Welcome to Return Home, Rough Road Ahead."

俺家门前的路坏了,坑坑洼洼的,令俺每天上下班大不方便。终于有一天俺去上班的时候瞅见修路队开进来乐,叫俺大松乐一口气。晚上回家的时候俺琢磨着不知怎样的一条大道一直通到俺家门口呐。可等俺走近一瞧,猜怎么着,路上的坑一个没少,只不过在路口多出了一块牌子,上书六个大字:“前方道路不平。”

This is a scene of a natural rock formation. It looks magnificent, but with a catch though: the French have no opportunity to appreciate it at Louvre Museum in Paris, but need to travel to China's Yunnan Province to view it. It's so inconvenient, wonder why French army can't do something about it!

This is a huge fake facade, titled A Trip in France (法兰西之旅), of a building situated in the district of Shanghai where used to be French colony and ruled under French laws, reflecting the nature of French style liberation.
