Paris, France – Yesterday, the French Parliament approved a measure to reduce the 35-hour workweek to 25 hours to allow the public more time in their busy schedules to riot.  President Hollande spoke positively of the new law:  “This is a great opportunity for our nation.  Citizens lacked the sufficient time  to maintain this important aspect of French culture.  I love the smell of burning tires in the morning.”

Not everyone was happy with the law.  One young women said, “20 hours a week would have been better.  We don’t have sufficient time to drink wine and go to church.  Ha! Go to church! No, seriously, banning Nativity scenes, making Muhammad cartoons, and making sure no one wears a burqa does consume your week.”
