image for Sarkozy "touched up"
Note the big nose, a French trait.

France, Paris (The Lies) - The French magazine "Paris Match" has been accused of "touching up" Sarkozy, wiping away love handles, warts, pimples and pure ugliness.

In a revelation today the right wing magazine was accused by media giant BBC of air brushing the French president. In a statement released today the BBC stated that; "Paris Match is filtering the truth that the rest of the world must see. Akin to propaganda, it has been beautifying the ugly president since his rise to power. Let the world see the representative of the real France, unshaven, ugly, drunk and homeless."

Paris Match has defended its "touch up" stating that; "France is the most romantic place on earth. We can't let some smoking president ruin the lie for the rest of the world. The world can not handle the real France. We have every right covering our countries faults with lies, like China and Russia."

The photos in question were taken when Sarkozy went on a canoe trip with his son. The shots taken by BBC journalists resulted in the leader losing his temper and releasing a string of French swears. Apparently hypnotizing the crew with his fat, he quickly retrieved the camera and had it forwarded to Paris Match for processing. Staying at the houses of two wealthy French families he has highlighted the property crisis in France where even the president is homeless.

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