There's a shortage of eggs in France. This happened because the European Union Welfare of Laying Hens Directive banned the use of battery cages on January 1. France is now suffering through a shortfall of 21 million eggs per week. This has angered the French Union for Crusty and Soft Breadmaking, among other interested parties.
Yet somehow, there are enough eggs available for throwing at the President of the Republic. Nicolas Sarkozy was forced to take shelter in a bar in the Basque region after he was mobbed by socialists and separatists who yelled insults and threw eggs at him.
Meanwhile, a call girl has apparently told police that Dominique Strauss-Kahn was "treated like the Messiah at orgies I went to."
