    Here’s an interesting side note: the quote that people in the English-language internet seem to be sending around is the late Stephane Charbonnier’s “I prefer to die standing than living on my knees” when asked about the threat of being killed.

    I haven’t seen it as much on the French sites as I’ve seen Georges Wolinski’s much more inappropriate and funny response when he was asked about the threat of death: “J’ai dit à ma femme : tu jetteras les cendres dans les toilettes, comme cela je verrai tes fesses tous les jours.”

    (Roughly: I told my wife: throw my ashes in the toilet, so I can look at your ass every day.)Report
