PARIS - The French government realizing that they have to get with the program and become politically correct has decided to replace their country's traditional flag with one that is much more appropriate and in keeping with the modern day French attitude.
The flag's designer is the noted French avant garde flag designer Chevalier Montbordeaux of Grenoble.
Montbordeaux said that the inspiration for the flag came to him one day as he was watching old reruns of World War II.
He said that the sight of thousands of French soldiers running away from a platoon of German Nazi soldiers said a lot about the general makeup of the French military establishment.
Montbordeau said that he merely took off his white T-Shirt, cut off the two sleeves and as they say in Monaco "Viola."
He did confess that at first several of his fellow countrymen did not like the idea of the new white flag. One complained that it was too plain. Montbordeaux explained to him that it was too plain because it is after all a white flag.
Another of his countrymen said that the flag did not have anything on it except for whiteness. Again Montbordeaux said that it was the perfect flag for France 2010.
But overall, Montbordeaux said that once he explained the reasoning behind it he said that everyone was very understanding and actually embraced the idea with open arms, an open mind, and an open bottle of white Merlot.
