I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around,
and don't let anybody tell you different

Felicitating in French

You know, if there's one thing one shouldn't do, it's using your blog just for posting Youtube clips (Tobi, if you're reading this: present company excluded. You do it the way it's supposed to be done).

Having said that (and having broken my own rule more than once), there's just something utterly postworthy about a Youtube clip such as the following one. And that's because there's something utterly remarkable about a British Prime Minister using an online video sharing site owned by the world's most powerful (American) search engine to congratulate the new French President-elect, for all the world to see.

In French.

I don't know about you, but something tells me these Brits will miss Tony Blair before long.
