When perceived through the squinty, eyes of snooty, old-Europeans, America is a proletarian wasteland where culture and sophistication come to die. That's why it's funny that the epitome of working class America, McDonald's, is opening a store IN the Louvre.....heh, heh.....
Lovers of France's two great symbols of cultural exception – its haute cuisine and fine art – are aghast at plans to open a McDonald's restaurant and McCafé in the Louvre museum next month.
"This is the last straw," said one art historian working at the Louvre, who declined to be named. "This is the pinnacle of exhausting consumerism, deficient gastronomy and very unpleasant odours in the context of a museum," he told the Daily Telegraph.
Didier Rykner, head of The Art Tribune website found the idea "shocking".
While French elite whine about the encroachment of the symbol of America's wretched vulgarity, their country is being overrun by Muslim zealots. Once Sharia Law is established in about 25 years, the Muslims will surely raze the Louvre altogether. The irony will come when the French cry to America to save their country from the mean Muslims. I guess they'll be loving those Big Macs then.
A snooty French person.
