Paris v France

So, the IOC is visiting the two cities as part of their process to decide who will host the 2012 Olympics.

This piece in The Guardian made me chuckly on 40 reasons why London trounces Paris. Gems include:

London SE18 features a Ha Ha Road. There was once a ditch there.
When Londoners fell in, other Londoners would shout "Ha! Ha!" Even better, this
is actually true.

Londoners can still drive geese and swine through Dulwich, if they pay the correct tolls. Parisians, doubtless, would kidnap, force-feed and eat the ducks.


Unfortunately, they gave the piece on why Paris is great to a French rugby player to write.
I tell you, Paris is a lovely city; the city of love and lovers.
London is nice too...

Rugby players are of course known for their powers of literary persuasion.

I was told supposed inside info that Paris got the olympics. But the source was too mysterious..
