      (from an email)

      Today it was reported that severe earthquakes have
      occurred in 10 different locations in France.
      The cause was the 56,681 dead American soldiers buried
      in French soil rolling over in their graves.

      According to the American Battle Monuments Commission
      there are 26,255 Yankee dead from World War I buried
      in 4 cemeteries in France.

      There are 30,426 American dead from World War II buried
      in 6 cemeteries in France.

      These 56,681 brave American heroes died in their youth to
      liberate a country which is guilty of shameful behavior in
      the 21st century. May the United States of America never forget
      their sacrifice as we find ways to deal with the unappreciative,
      forgetful country of France.
