"Let Them Ride Bikes"

When the price of bread rose, Marie-Antoinette said (aprocyphally), "Let them eat cake." When the price of gas rose, Christine Lagarde said, "Let them ride bikes." A farmers' union official from the FDSEA suggested that she try pulling a harrow or seeding machine with "a vélib' de Paris." Now we know why Sarko went out to face the fishermen in Guilvinec. He remembered the fate of le boulanger, la boulangère, et le mitron.
