They SO VERY nearly succeeded

The Eiffel Tower, the symbol of Paris, of France, and of Paris, France, has been the object of an ugly incident during the ongoing riotous actions of a few despicable thugs in the capital today.

A crowd of about a thousand Yellow Vest protestors attached metal cables to the Tower, and tried to pull it down. The attempt failed, but police are worried that a bigger crowd might have more success if the caper is tried again.

The Tower opened to the public in 1889, and has never been pulled down before.

Paris has a motto:

"Tossed, but never sunk"

which might be better-suited to a ship, or a pancake.

Paris is the location frequented by lovers, but, this weekend it is expected to be frequented by looters, as the anti-government protests gather pace. The protestors have changed the focus of their anger, after the government scrapped fuel tax increases it had been planning. Now, their grouse seems to be with education.

In another incident, a man wearing a beret threw an onion from near the top of the Tower, but nobody was hurt.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
