At least he wasn't peeing all over the place while he was on that scooter.

That's progress, I guess.

One day many years ago, I was going for a drive through the city with my now ex-wife. We were stopped at a red light, and happened to be right next to a long line of people waiting to get in to a concert. All of these concert goers had their faces painted like demented clowns. This was before I had heard of ICP, so the wife and I were thinking; ooookay freakshow. Two of the young juggalos were looking at us, and appeared to be in animated conversation, and after a minute or so broke out in to a run toward our car. Now I wasn't exactly scared per say, but I did have the wife in the car and was concerned. Two young guys in evil clown makeup running at us. I rolled down the window when they reached the car, and one of them excitedly asked me; "has anyone ever told you that you look just like Gerard Depardieu?" I just started laughing. True story.

Last time I was in Paris I rented a scooter that only went at most 30 miles an hour. Best time I had in Paris, it not like the U.S. where you have to worry about getting hit if you ride a scooter because everyone drives a scooter. So many tourists mistaked me for a local just because I was on a scooter. Can't wait to do it again.

About ten years ago we saw him at an airport, he was sat next to us and stank of sweat and wine and cigs. Really stinky. I was a bit disappointed because I'd recently watched Jean de Floret and it kind of stripped away a bit of the mystique of the film. I think now though I'd pay good money to see him try to ride a scooter while drunk, he's a large guy I'm thinking he'd be like an elephant on a unicycle.

I look like Gerard Depardieu, therefore I do not allow myself to be photographed.

On behalf of fellow Farkers, thank you.

When reached for comment, Gerard said, "I'm an incontinent intercontinental"

More like Depardon't amirite?

He had a small part in Life of Pi. He wasn't looking so good there either.

Hopefully this will end better than the last time he got in trouble with the authorities

The first movie I saw of his was My Father, The Hero. If for no other reason, it was good because it showed a 15 year-old Katherine Heigl in a thong.

He also made an excellent Porthos in The Man in the Iron Mask.

That doesn't seem very French to me. Isn't driving scooters while drunk more of an Italian thing? I thought all they do is drive around on vespas saying "Ciao~."

/it's the European Dream

Although Depardieu is indeed a big man (and kind of a pig, too), remember that scooters in Europe goes in a lot of size and engine size. The higher end ones are bigger than most motorcycles. The huge Suzuki Burgman, very popular, can have a 650cc engine. Anything with an engine higer than 125cc can smoke most cars at a stop light. The 125cc scooters are very popular in Paris, because they are frankly the best way, by far, to go around. They are light and nimble without being too small, and the engine power is more than enough to handle traffic, even on the périphérique.

And now, just because this post was getting boring, here is a picture of Gerard Depardieu engaged in mutual masturbation with Albert Delpy.

125cc bikes and scooters can be ridden on a learner licence (I don't know if France has the CBT) in France and the rest of Europe so it's a very easy and cheap way of getting mobile. 100mpg and free parking has a lot going for it with the densely populated cities of Europe.

/vehicle licenses are not given out like happy meal toys
//new European bike license rules are stupid
///glad I passed a couple of years ago
