RED BULL'S SHORT HISTORY OF FRANCE

Q: Why did the Emperor Napoleon always keep his left arm inside his coat?

A: So that he could always check he had his can of Red Bull with him!

French History... uncovered!

Why did Zidane head butt an Italian player in the last football World Cup?
Because the Italian had suggested he didn't like the taste of Red Bull.

Why did the English burn Joan Of Arc?
Because they found out she was stockpiling cans of Red Bull from across the Channel.

Why was Marie Antoinette put to the Guillotine?
Because, the people of Paris never forgave her for saying, on hearing that they were dying of thirst: "If they have no more Red Bull, then give them Chateau Margeaux!"

What sparked the Student Riots in Paris in '68?
News that Red Bull was banned from the Students' bar.

Why did the Romans never manage to invade the tiny village in Gaul, inhabited by Obelix and Asterix?
Because the magic potion that gave them their strength was Red Bull.

Why did French engineers design Concorde?
So that they could save time flying to countries where Red Bull was on sale.
NB: Once rumours started that Red Bull would be on sale in France, they came up with the much slower Airbus as there was no longer a need to rush off to foreign countries in a hurry.

Why did General de Gaulle wear that funny peaked cap?
Because he always kept a tin of Red Bull underneath it.

A famous incorrect quotation: When French existentialist, Jean-Paul Sartre wrote his play 'Huis Clos' ('No Exit,') the most famous quote is often written as "Hell is other people." In fact, a few words are missing: it should read: "Hell is other people stealing your Red Bull."

Why did Sarkozy marry Carla Bruni (yes, apart from the obvious!)?
Because she would drive over from Italy to meet him with a car full of Red Bull.
