This is the email i got during a sale on Ebay :
- “Pourquoi un sèche cheveux dans un dessin représentant Claude François ?”
- (“Why a hairdryer in the drawing of Claude Francois ?”)
I simply answered that it was a very common picture to see Claude Francois dying in his bathtube whith an electric hairdryer. I assume it wasn’t a very accurate biograhic-picture as it was one of the first, made uniquely from my own memories.
So, i received a very straight forward reply by this kind ebayer :
- “Sèche cheveux, vibromasseur…. Cela fait 34 ans qu’on entend ces inepties. NON IL A VOULU REDRESSER UNE APPLIQUE.Rien que pour cela je n’achèterai pas votre dessin et je vais me faire un devoir de le déconseiller.”
- (Hair-dryer, Dildo… 34 years of totally idiotic remarks. No, I was fixing up a wall light. And just because of this i won’t buy your drawing and i will have a duty to not recommand it !)
So if you want some funny stories, the one country able to do it is the French one ….. Furiously french as i said…
At least, everyone’s know that he died while fixing a dild… no a wall lamp on the wall.
