La Grenouille Est Sans Le Sou

The French economy is bust but Nicolas Sarkozy must still try to pretend that his position in Europe is a leading one, not least to impress Angela Merkel in the hope that she will bail him out before the next French elections. It is obviously most important that he does not lose face and can maintain his haughty French manner while still keeping her sweet and friendly.

At the latest European Summit meeting in Paris to discuss yet again the future of the EU, Sarkozy decided to go jogging to impress Markel with his manly fitness. On the first day, he jogged past a hooker in the Champs-Élysées who shouted, “One thousand euros!”

“Non! Five euros!” He fired back, just to shut her up.

This ritual between him and the hooker continued each day. He’d run by and she’d yell, “One thousand euros!” and he’d yell back, “Five euros!”

One day, Angela Merkel decided that she would accompany Sarkozy on his jog. As the jogging couple neared the working woman’s street corner, Nicolas Sarkozy realised she’d shout her usual offer and he figured Angela Merkel would think that he had been doing business with her.

As they jogged into the turn that would take them round the corner, he became more and more apprehensive. Sure enough, there was the hooker. He tried to avoid the prostitute’s eyes as she watched the pair jog past.

Then, from her corner, the hooker yelled, “See what you get five euros, you tight little bastard!”
