It's that joyous time of year again, Bastille Day on July 14
, when French people the world over commemorate that time a couple centuries ago when the Marquis de Sade compelled a bunch of pissed off and rowdy sans-culottes
to storm a medieval fortress and prison in Paris, thereby kicking off a defining moment in the French Revolution.
Vive la revolution, my French friends! Vive la France! And let us never forget:
"Man has the right to deal with his oppressors by devouring their palpitating hearts."
