French Word(s) of the Day: imbéciles d’avril (awm-bay-seal dav-real)- April Fools
April Fools Day is not my thing. I’m not good at thinking up pranks that aren’t illegal. And if they were legal, I’m afraid to do them to someone for fear of retaliation. I’m like the French: I surrender quickly.
But today shall be different. I’m celebrating April Fools! (Like an hour early. Unless you’re actually in Paris right now, then I’m right on time!)
I’m going to probably be dragging out this Paris trip for the next year, but you don’t want me recounting my days. All I do on a daily basis is work and watch episodes of Parks and Recreation. Trust me, it’s better this way.
Sam showed us a taxidermist in Paris, only he wasn’t your typical “here’s your dead cat in his favorite position” type of guy. Oh no. He was an ARTIST.
If by artist I mean someone who takes the carcass of one dead animal and attaches it to another dead animal.
Oh yeah, he went there (if you please excuse the fact that these were obviously taken by an amateur who can’t deal with glass windows):
Because of the winged monkey, I’m guessing he’s a Wizard of Oz fan. I don’t know what the tortoise-shelled chipmunk looking longingly at a beetle would make him, but I’m going to go with “eccentric.”
These can be yours for over 100 euro! I know, they’re a steal. What? You’re not interested?!
Ah what fools these mortals be.
