  1. This is like a modern version of ‘Down and out in London and Paris’ by George Bernard Shaw.
    He describes the life of the ‘plongeurs’ (Sp?) who washed the dishes behind the scenes in fancy Paris restaurants of the 1930’s. This was before Paris became the utterly over-rated, foul-smelling, dog toilet it has become today by the way. SIX TONS of dog shit gets left on the hot pavements of Paris EVERY DAY.
    No wonder Parisians are the rudest and most revoltingly smelly people in Europe. That level of stench has got to get to you.
    Don’t ever go there. It’s a vile shit hole.
