Hi all of you, Readers,
Tonight, I'm not going to be as talkative as usual. I just want to share with you a comic situation, that you may have been the witnesses.
The scene takes place during the Election Day In New York. On Times Square, as a camera was filming above the crowd, a banner, on which was written "CASSOULET", kept the eye of the cameraman, the people in front of their screen who where watching the result of the election (and enjoying the Obama success!!) and finally of a lot of American and especially American media. What or who is Cassoulet?
If you are not french, Cassoulet doesn't ring a bell to you. I think that you can even imagine what it is. This explains why Cassoulet has been the 62 word the most searched on Google after the following night.
Well, maybe you have searched it and already know what it is, but I'm still going to explain it. Cassoulet is not a code name, used by the secret service. It is better than that. It represents all that France has good, which is... food. Cassoulet is a typical meal coming from Castelnaudary, a city situed in the South-West of France. When you eat it, you had better to be really hungry as it is quite a heavy meal composed of beans, sausages, meats of pork and duck. Well, a really heavy meal!
This event has been organised by a columnist of a french TV show, browdcast on Canal +. This channel is really well known in France, especially for its free speech. Thanks of this channel, a lot of comedians has made their first step. So, during one week, all of the columnists of this TV show called "le Vrai Journal" have gone to New York, to show what was the situation, the atmospher, and also to have fun.
I think that the actors themselves have been astonished by the result of their action, as it creates a real curiosity and attention about their banner, and the meaning of what was written on it. This action is quite absurd, useless, and I quote something written by an american journalist who has pretty said that he has never seen something that weird.
What do you think of it? Have you seen this banner on TV?
I will answer during a more longer post next time. Thank you for all the people who has a comment, it is really nice to read it!
See you soon and have a really good night (that it is what I'm going to do!!!)
