No. 80: Humour à la française

The French have a very unique brand of humor. Sometimes it annoys the heck out of me, sometimes it makes me stop and say, “What the f**k?!”, but most of the time it makes me smile and be glad to be able to experience absurdity from a different cultural perspective.

Yesterday at the Corrida de Noël was no exception. Humour à la française was out in force.

Absolutely the most hilarious déguisement of the day...

    Love the costumes…especially the buche de Noel, smiley face, and many Santas! I’m surprised someone in Boulder hasn’t thought of doing a race like this!

    • Moi aussi. It does seem like the perfect race for Boulder. If they ever start one and we are back for it, I think the four of us should be the bûche de Noël.
