Kafka in France

Brice Hortefeux appears to be working hard to meet his expulsion quota in order to get a good grade from the ministerial evaluators before the coming cabinet shuffle. This article details the rather Kafkaesque adventures of a man from the Ivory Coast who was arrested in Italy and returned to France, where his visa had expired, so that French authorities could officially expel him, even though he had an airplane ticket in his pocket and was on his way back home to be married in the Ivory Coast.

As my children say in their text messages, WTF? If you don't know what it means, don't look it up.
