French farming minister Didier Guillaume has thrown his boule into the mix in an international spat, saying on Tuesday that US president Donald Trump's threat to tax French wines was "completely moronic". Trump threatened last week to make the move in retaliation for France's proposal to levy a tax aimed at big U.S. technology companies - known in France as the 'GAFAs' (Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple). "It's absurd, in terms of having a political and economic debate, to say that if...

Last June, Paris, France designated a soccer field-sized section of its Bois de Vincennes park as an area for nudists and sunbathers looking to enjoy some clothes-free fun. It was a great idea, but now a bunch of clothed “perverts” are ruining the fun by leering, attacking women and touching themselves while ogling the nudists. Ugh. The two-acre stretch of land that permits nudity from April to October has warning signs saying that inappropriate behavior isn’t tolerated, but the signs aren’t...

It was delayed while anti-government “yellow...
