Hee Haw Haw Haw!

The Cultural Scourge of French Line Dancing Comes Under State Ccntrol
This is old news, but the disgusting scene here is a band of French Line Dancers enjoying themselves in Paris. Before you know it they'll be adopting dance hall names like Enfant Samples, Roi Clarque and Bucque Henri, shrieking "Hey Gran-Pere, what's for supper!"

Then some subversive wag will yell back: "Cognac Shrimp en Beurre blanc sauce, Coquilles Saint-Jacques, peas with black eyes, bread of corn and Lone Star Beer!" This Reign of Terror must be killed in les cradle! The wild, decadent marotte le Americain has to be regulated!

Now Country and Western has become so big in France that the country's bureaucrats have decided to bring the craze under state control.

The French administration has moved to create an official country dancing
diploma as part of a drive to regulate the fad. Authorized instructors who have been on publically funded training
courses will be put in charge of line dancing lessons and
balls.

It's hard to believe the the French beat Obama to that idea. I am sure that reforming line dancing would also be beneficial to economic recovery.

Here in Texas, crazy kicker dancers roam dance halls and streets wreaking havoc and causing mischief. You get this kind of chaos when the government will not protect us.

DC, it will spread to the yutes in the banlieus around Paris, too, and what an auto da fe of Stetsons we'll see then.

DC is correct. It is unfettered line dancing that is putting such a great strain on the economy. These reforms cannot come soon enough. Only through line dancing reform can the economic problems of France (and later, the world) be cured. All dance hall owners should expect salary caps. That should go a long way toward instituting fairness into the system.

If only the socialists would LIMIT their brand of stupidity to the regulation of line dancing...

Though the pictures don't show it, do the Frogs (apologies to frogs) dress up like urban cowboys to dance to the tunes of all time greats like Achy Breaky Heart?

You know, this may be a great job opportunity for hard core unemployed Americans -- French National Line Dancing Regulator. Once you have a job in France you essentially have a right to that job for life. We could move people out of the Ghetto to France, where they'd stay.

Oh, regulated eh? If the dancers get into the beer, whiskey, and guns, regulators might find themselves razzed in ways that aren't mentionable. Well, it's a fun thought in any case. They really need to lighten up on some things and get a little back bone on others.

Have they already forgotten the bikes?

Nothing funny at all about this post. Last year I was strolling through Brussels and was accosted by an unlicensed mob of Morris Dancers.

Okay that made me laugh - quite ridiculous. Maybe the French are just concerned about the influence of C&W on haute couture though ;)

LOL.. it just doesnt fit! This from the country that gave us the Moulin Rouge.. now line dancing? Is this an attempt by the french to engratiate themselves in some way or take the piss??

Line dancing gives you the protection of a herd when you have to run away.

E tuttavia, Charmel, se l'hai trovato abbastanza tempo con niente da fare per visitare qui. E 'ironico.

No piss-taking, Bird. These people are true enthusiasts. Think of all the cowboys in Yorkshire.
