Paris Launches Smile Campaign To Lure Tourists. Good Luck With That!

July 16, 2009 by  
Filed under Weird Stuff

“Faced with a fall in tourist numbers due to the financial crisis and a reputation for unfriendliness, the Paris tourist board has made a simple request of the city’s residents: smile.

Visitors to Paris, the world’s most visited city, have fallen 17 percent since January compared with the same period in 2008, official figures show.
To counter the slump and boost revenues, the tourist board has set up stands manned by teams of “smile ambassadors” to welcome holiday-makers at the city’s most popular spots.”

Trying to make the French seem polite and hospitable is an exercise in futility, they have a well earned reputation for being surly and rude.

Tourists flood Paris for the world class restaurants, remarkable museums and historical buildings, and not because the French are so chummy. We expect snow in Siberia, sunny weather in Hawaii, and rude folks in France.

Tourism has fallen off in Paris due to the global economic crisis, not because people  have suddenly realized that the French are snobs.

You can coerce a serial killer to smile, but I still won’t approach him. You can cajole a French person to smile, but I’d rather walk on hot coals than shoot the breeze with him.

Pennsylvania has some town names more suited to other parts of the USA, such as Hollywood and Denver. You can find Desire, enter Paradise, and end up in Panic before you get to Home or Distant, close to the Tidal area.

Not far away is Indiana, PA – birthplace of the actor, Jimmy Stewart. Other out-of-place sites are California, Oklahoma, Washington, and Wyoming. Want some science? Visit Laboratory. Have a hankering for Europe? Drive to Holland, Paris, or Scotland. A trip to Mars or Moon is also possible.

My two favorite town names, however, are in Canada. Sissiboo Falls is in New Brunswick, and in Quebec is Saint-Louis-du-Ha! Ha!
