Fiery Fracas in France

The normally eternal Olympic Flame hit a hurdle today (love that metaphor) in Paris as torch-bearers ran into angry mobs of protesters. The situation had gotten so out of hand that the torch had to travel part of the way on a bus, requiring the torch to be extinguished at least three times. No biggie, though, because naturally everyone on the bus was smoking, and no one in France has ever missed an episode of King of the Hill.

The Chinese were quick to express their equally eternal and surprisingly spontaneous gratitude towards the fumeurs français fabuleux.

I think it's time you pull out that tired pack of Gauloises from your Girbaud pocket and give more room for you say...pocket ping pong...(?)

Your Chinese quad aren't really cheering for this guy any more, are they?
