Yippee, soon it's voting time here in France. Local Elections and later (I think) European ones.
Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party, but which one? The Socialists are out every Saturday at the market, giving away red roses, but only to the women....that's discrimination! Why can't I have one...?
I've got one of these but I want a rose...
In any case, the ladies only eat them.....
In France there are quite a number of parties, in fact almost as many as cheeses produced but only one gives something away!

Anyway - I'll go to the town hall and vote, not tellin' ya who for though.....!
Guess she'll have to do the cooking on those 2 Sundays!
