French ANIMALS Strike!
The Association for the National Integration of Mammals As Legitimate Subjects has agreed to strike in opposition to the recent legislative bill that raises the national retirement age in France from 60 to 62.
The French Union of Concerned Creatures (Le FUCC) has been in a diplomatic standoff with President Sarkozy for almost three weeks.
“It’s bullshit!” says a pigeon. “It was hard enough thinking I was going to have to make it another 59 and a half years before retirement. There’s no way I’m going to make it to 62! So what does that mean? The fucking turtles are the only ones afforded the opportunity to enjoy their twilight? I don’t think so.”
Turtles had this to say: “Hey, we don’t make the rules, we just live by them. Maybe if everyone slowed down a bit there would be less stress pinching years off of their lifelines. I’ve got kids in the sand right now who probably won’t make it out alive. Do you hear me complaining? No, it’s just a fact of life.”
Until this conflict is resolved, French citizens should expect to see less merde on their windshields.
