The Flood of French Exiles Continues
Former acress Brigitte Bardot may soon join Gerard Depardieu as a Russian citizen.
No, she is not going into tax exile. She wishes to leave France in protest of its cruelty to animals. Elephants, specifically. She has chosen Russia, presumably, because she can see (but not comprehend) the purity of our souls, which drives us to live in accordance with the natural order of things.
We welcome her with enthusiasm, and to those who doubt Russia as an animal-cruelty-free zone we say this: we very rarely make hats out of elephants.
