sont-Ils vraiment cons?

I hate to come back from being away for almost a week and have to start whining, but I can't help it. I read this article the other day and almost flipped my wig.

If you're too lazy to click over, no worries, I'll explain. Basically some assholes broke into the famous Cathedral and vandalised a bunch of stuff. For those of you who have never had the pleasure of visiting it, you're really missing out. It's quite lovely and quite famous for it's Chagall windows. (No the windows in the photo below. They busted up the Adam and Eve ones!)

Metz Cathedral

So these dorks break in and then can't figure out how to get back out so, they punch their way out --you guessed it--throught the Chagall windows.


I'm especially pissy since that particular window was my favorite! The worse part is, they seem to have done it just for the heck of it. They didn't even take anything valuable.

That's like breaking into MOMA, not taking anything, and then punching a Picasso on your way out. I mean, we're talking real idiots here. Hence this post will be filed under the WTF category.

Now on to more pressing matters: Did anyone watch "Ile de Tentation" last week?

There should be a special punishment for them, one that would inspire artists.

WHAT! Oh my god! I didn't hear about this!!!

How about a public punching of the guys that did it? That sounds fair...

There are so many freakin idiots in this town, I swear. What a bunch of cons! I'm so angry now. There aren't a lot of nice things in Metz so of course they have to destroy every unique thing. Strangely this doesn't seem to happen in Paris..

If the police would spend less time directing traffic into the parking garage into protecting the cities monuments and patrolling the hoon zones, it would be a lot freakin better!

My grandfather used to say "most people are below average." I'd say that most people are "cons".
