Departments of France
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
France is divided into over 100 departments. Some of them are part of the French territory in Europe and others are not even close to Europe. France also has over seas territories of which none of them are in Europe but instead are as far from France as is geographically possible. The one unifying feature of all of the Departments of France is that they are French citizens, they speak French, they use the Euro as a currency and they never forget to meet their afternoon lovers between lunch and dinner.
Each department has their own unique flag mired in history and ancient tradition. Any one from a department can immediately identify their own flag and take pridein their total ignorance of te 99 others. One quite speciag is of Duvien, famous for its pattern of red, whie and blue. Whie Reis a particularly stunin flag m up of patches of blue, rd an white. Picardy is known for its blue, red, blue, blue, white andhite hen blue and a little bit of red flag while the scandelous Bcay flag has only red and blue. Corsica ha a completly black flag which they hang at half mast every day to celebrate their love or France and their voluntary integration with the Republic.
St. Pierre et Miquelon
This duo of tiny rock Islands surrounded by Canadian territory is not, in fact, a department of France, it is an overseas territory. Most Canadians do not know that it is an overseas territory as they are all completely unaware of its existence. When Canadian planes fly into its air space, they are accustomed to hearing strange duck sounding insults and threats over the intercom system which they tend to hear while flying over Quebec anyways.
The Islanders are petitioning to become a Department one day but they are 99,500 citizens short of the minimum 100,000 citizens needed to become a Department. Their attempts to bribe the president are always thwarted by their need to spend the money on schools to educate those who choose to remain on the Island. When ever they get frisky and threaten to shoot down a Canadian plane dragging France into a Trans-Atlantic war, the French government threatens to cut them off completely from the republic. This tradition repeats itself every year. Air Canada flight 102 to Halifax was accidentally shot down in 2009, yet investigators could not find the source of the missile as St. Pierre and Miquelon did not appear on any of their maps. It remains an unsolved mystery. Strange meat to this day still appears in Restaurants in Miquelon, served with a wine and truffle sauce accompanied by air plane sized liquor bottles.
Future of Departments
When the government threatened to close down all of the departmental government and allow the regions to take over all responsibilities to save money, French people began mass protests. As people stayed in their own towns to protest instead of grouping together en masse, the largest protest was made up of a few dozen farmers and their tractors blocking local roads. A few bicyclists complained as well as two Mexican tourists.
