One hundred striking French show business workers took over a studio at cable channel Canal Plus today, interrupting live broadcasts to protest unemployment benefit cuts, according to Variety. Some carried signs threatening a strike at the Cannes Film Festival which starts next week.

We'd like to think that all of the Hollywood writers' strike talk somehow inspired the French protesters. But if the French like anything more than blocking their airspace from American warplanes, it's cheese that stinks like homeless people in the summer. But in the absence of funky cheese, they do love them a good wildcat strike. Don't these striking heathens know that Rachel is on her way to Paris?
