Ladies and Gentlemen of the Guangzhou Hash,
It has been quite a while since Napoleon gave the American people the Statue of Liberty. The relationship between France and The USA has gone in only one direction from there, and that direction is, of course, down the precipice. It hit rock bottom when 70 years ago the Americans invaded France and – the ultimate humiliation in many French eyes – erected a monstrosity of steel right in the centre of Paris. And if that hadn’t been bad enough already, they didn’t even have the decency to give it a local name like they did with e.g. French Fries, and bluntly called it “the Eiffeltower”.
So if it were really true what some smart asses claim, that history rewrites itself, I wouldn’t bet a flying fuck on any improvement in this relationship. But since the future isn’t predictable and obviously nothing can be learnt from history I am happy to see that some people make an effort and try to reverse the direction by setting the First Franco-American trail on the Guangzhou Hash.
