Salut à la France

I'm not much for April Fool's Day jokes—I'd much rather pull a hoax when everybody's not expecting one—but Pliable passes along a fine example of the genre from today's Guardian. (Carla should be glad that Damon Albarn doesn't have a daughter.*)

*Update (4/1): Actually, he does. (Note to self: always fact-check jokes.)

Update II (4/1): Even better—it's a meta-joke (see comments). Well played, sir!

Thanks Matthew. But the story wasn't from the Guardian, that was part of the joke - the link goes nowhere.

But totally coincidentally the Guardian had their own Carla Bruni joke which, IMHO, wasn't as funny -


Thanks for dropping by.
