image for France Angry Over NSA's Spies Uncovering Embarassing Research

It has finally been discovered exactly why the French Government is so upset about the NSA surveillance imbroglio. This scandal has reached a level that, according to White House insiders, President Obama is hoping for some disaster he can attend so as to shift the world's attention.

Apparently among the myriad streams of data uncovered by Edward Snowden while working at the NSA is one study that is feared to be extremely harmful to French morale and the Gallic "je ne sais quoi" mentality.

The study which has been on-going throughout the 20th century attempted to quantify the width of the "yellow streak" located on the back of the average French soldier.

The behavioral scientists at the Sorbonne discovered that currently the yellow streak is at a mean width of 112.3 cm. While embarrassing, this is an improvement over the mean yellow streak of 157.8 cm during WWI and of 176.9 cm during WWII.

Attempts by the American ambassador to smooth the waters between the two governments have been unsuccessful.
