    Well, it's the country of Charlie Hebdo. A bit of satire and blasphemy is definitely in place.

    Infuriating and insulting if you've been playing this music for 5 years, hilarious and spot-on if you've been at it for 20. Humor is the most difficult thing to comprehend in another language.

    In related news: Some Americans don't appreciate traditional jazz.

    Some Argentinians don't appreciate tango.

    Some Spaniards don't appreciate paso doble.

    The list could go on forever.

    It looks like a bit of advertising clickbait & if it irked you enough to tell people about it, then it worked as he intended ;-)

    I'm glad that there is so much stuff on the internet, because in many ways, the internet is amazing. I just figured out how to upgrade the lighting in my shop to be color-correct and 92CRI at center and >95CRI over the benches so that I can color-match lacquer without leaving the shop and just generally have more pleasant light. It took only a few hours over the course of a couple of days. In the 80's, that kind of research would have taken phone calls, driving, & days to weeks of dead-ends & sifting through irrelevant information. Behold the power of the internet circa 2016.

    But clickbait reminds me why I sort of miss the internet circa 1980s/90s before clickbaiters & advertisers discovered it - when it was just a bunch of nerds on dial-up modems checking their pine-mail and obsessing over computers & Princess Leia (RIP)
    You get one chance to enjoy this day, but if you're doing it right, that's enough.
