Paris again seeking to be cutting edge have opened a new exhibit. A yellow goo called "the blob" (so Stephen King 1980's). As the French say: "Parle vous Jai un sac de feu" Which I am pretty sure means, Joey dropped his scrambled eggs before they were done and we put it in an exhibit."
So why should you quite your job right now, buy a ticket to France, and go see this exhibit?
You shouldn't. France has done this before. The great storming of Bastille to start a revolution actually only saved seven criminals from jail. That wouldn't even make a good Hollywood movie. And the Mona Lisa... not sure she is actually smiling.
But even beyond that, the French have released some crazy facts about the blob such as it has 720 different sexes (???), it solves mazes, can beat puzzle master Will Short in Soduku, and it likes oatmeal!
And in fact, it appears we have known about this blob since the 1960's. And we believe it has been around billions of years, enjoying long walks in the forest and reading The Great Gatsby. It is not a new discovery. Only the French trying to convince you to come see their zoo.
But part of me understands why the French would want this as their key exhibit in a zoo. Zoo's should show the community animals that are wild and a little terrifying. Here in the Southeast of the United States, we want to see lions, tigers, bears, pythons, and piranha's. These are all really awesome animals that we are also a little afraid of encountering.
For the French, a people who we must remember lost their own civil war, I suppose the blob is that animal. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if soon we here that the French military has surrendered to it. Only after using pay phones to coordinate the peace treaty of course.
