For the holiday season, our local department store (the Bazar de l’Hôtel de Ville, or BHV) has added a few displays of international cuisine. Here’s the American one:
French’s mustard, Hellmann’s mayonnaise, barbecue sauce, Tabasco sauce, popcorn, pancakes, Star Wars potato chips, Reese’s peanut butter, and Marshmallow Fluff. I’m so disgusted that I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry! Is this really what the French think of us? Surely there’s something better than Marshmallow Fluff to represent America… right? Right?
On behalf of the American people, I apologize to all the French children getting mayonnaise in their Christmas stockings this year.
