France’s impending civil war: a race to see which side surrenders first

PARIS—In a twist that only the French could orchestrate, the land of baguettes and berets finds itself on the brink of a cultural civil war, leaving experts perplexed about whether both sides will prematurely throw in their metaphorical white flags before the battle even begins.

The cultural skirmish has been characterized by intense debates over the proper way to appreciate fine wine, the correct angle to tilt a beret, and whether a baguette should be eaten with reverence or devoured with laissez-faire nonchalance. In the City of Light, these issues are no trivial matters.

Renowned cultural critic Marcel Escargot states, “It’s a true battle of the senses. The clash of opinions on matters like the appropriate length of a café conversation and the ideal amount of garlic in a dish has left the nation divided. The French are known for their love of debate, but this? This is war.”

The conflict’s peculiar nature has experts concerned that, unlike traditional civil wars, both sides may decide to preemptively surrender, citing fatigue from the constant debates over the correct way to appreciate art, the importance of existential angst, and whether or not a smelly cheese is truly superior to a pungent one.

Political commentator Éclair de Lune observes, “It’s a war of attrition, but instead of ammunition, it’s fueled by the dwindling patience of the French people. We’re talking about a country that could argue for hours over the appropriate time to eat a croissant – it’s a volatile situation.”

The French government, notorious for its bureaucracy, has attempted to mediate the conflict by proposing a series of committee discussions and diplomatic soirées, where participants can engage in passionate discourse while enjoying an assortment of cheeses and wines.

However, with the potential for both sides to preemptively surrender, the question arises: Can a cultural civil war truly take place if everyone is too tired to fight?

As France teeters on the edge of this war of taste and refinement, the world watches with bated breath, wondering if the French will once again redefine the concept of a war, transforming it into a sophisticated affair of debate, diplomacy, and perhaps a resigned shrug. Only time will tell if the French cultural civil war will indeed go down in history as the first conflict resolved by mutual agreement to just go get a glass of wine and forget about it.
