Day thirty

Long live the Resistance!!!

At the turn of last year a disgruntled Bush administration imposed a 300% import duty on Roquefort. The French were incensed. They were being treated unfairly, for the EU banning imported US hormone treated beef. But this is not the first time these bickering nations have fallen out over their precious delicacies.

Hormone treated meat, a delicacy? Well considering spores of the fungus Penicillium Roqueforti are used to help make Roquefort, why can meat not use hormones, which are artificial versions of some of our own natural hormones, to enhance its taste etc. Maybe if beef had a nice romantic story like Roquefort then maybe it may be more acceptable.

Not exactly a revolt of olden days but the French know how to breath out a stench. This is Che Guevara wannabe Jose Bove. He even has suitable accents over letters in his name, which is always important to the modern day revolutionist. This is after USA placed a complete ban on Roquefort in 1999, Jose Bove led his followers to a soon-to-be Ronald Mac emporium and dismantled the not completed building. Mcdonalds never recovered.
