The Year of Egypt in France — La foi en question (Nº 120*)

“Isn’t anybody going to help that poor man?”

It’s always the “though cops” who cry the most.

Harriet Johnson

Blazing Saddles (1974)

But of course you will. Of course you are going to say farewell to 2020 with a big Boom (not to be confused with today in History’s other Big Boom, On Pearl Harbor Observance Day 🚨), the timing is exquisitely awkward, or maybe even uncomfortably sweet, but The Song Remains The Same:

King : Hey, Taylor. How in the fuck you get here anyway? Why, you look educated.

Chris Taylor : I volunteered for it.

King : You did what?

Chris Taylor : I volunteered. I dropped out of college, and told them I wanted the infantry, combat, and Vietnam.

Crawford : You volunteered for this shit, man?

Chris Taylor : You believe that?

King : You’s a crazy fucker, giving up college.

Chris Taylor : It didn’t make much sense. I wasn’t learning anything. I figured why should just the poor kids go off to war and the rich kids always get away with it?

King : Oh, I see. What we got here is a crusader.

Crawford : Sounds like it.

King : Shit. You gotta be rich in the first place to think like that. Everybody know the poor are always being fucked over by the rich. Always have, always will.

Is it necessary to prohibit La Blasphème? Let’s ask La Bohème.

« L’impertinence est une tradition bien francesa but you have got to be French to get away with it.
