If I understand the report correctly, patriotic Americans are now boycotting everything French. Also, items which sound like they might be French, despite fervent press releases insisting they're not. (French's Mustard? Not from France.)

And what kind of impact is this having on France?

Well, none really. We're just one country, and those orders were long since filled and paid for. But the American businesses that distribute and sell these products are starting to hurt, and it looks like unemployment's about to go up as a result.

Meanwhile, other countries are starting to boycott American products in return. Now, maybe we'll shrug that off. Or maybe we'll shut down a few factories, export less shipments, and see what becomes of the national economy.

Good thinking, everyone. Keep up the good work.

That needs to be your main Icon for a while... it's very cool... :)

As to reminding you to delete... you know me better than that, I have forgotten my own name for God's sake!

Yeah, I'm real happy with how that came out, but this was my first 3D character in a few years. I'm sure I can do better.

When I have a generic "self" figure I'm happy with, I may replace every one of my user icons with poses and actions. But I don't think this guy's him.

Wow, that just doesn't have the same impact, does it?
