Vive La French Nationalized Railroads.

(Reuters) – France’s national rail company SNCF said on Tuesday it had ordered 2,000 trains for an expanded regional network that are too wide for many station platforms, entailing costly repairs.

“We discovered the problem a bit late…”

Transport Minister Frederic Cuvillier blamed an “absurd rail system” for the problem.

Our humble blog has been granted an exclusive imaginary interview with Mssr. Cuvillier.

Smiling Dave: Transport Minister Frederic Cuvillier, as the one having the final word in everything transport related, are you responsible for this fiasco?

FC: Of course not.

SD: Is the Prime Minister or the President responsible, because they chose you?

FC: Of course not.

SD: Is the underling who did the sloppy research responsible?

FC: Not him.

SD: Who then is the cause of this disaster?

FC: The railroad tracks are fully responsible. They are absurd.

SD: Since when are inanimate objects responsible for anything?

FC: Mon ami, Marx explained it all to us. The material productive forces are responsible for everything. The hand mill created feudalism. The wind mill created capitalism. Those absurd railroad tracks created this debacle.
