A French colleague of mine pointed me to the edition which had all sorts of celebrities announcing they were going to vote for Sarkozy - and the voting machines, too.....

Hi loisco, I'm glad you're enjoying French life!
Les Guignols de l'info (News Puppets?) are about 20 years old now and they're very famous in France.
Everybody said Mr Chirac had been elected thanks to them, even if they really made fun of him. They showed his human side more than the political one.

Here's one with N Sarkozy and S. Royal

Thanks for the clip...I wish we had programs like that here in the US...the French have a wonderful sense of humor..even the ads are funny, but this political show had us in stitches.

That is a show concept that runs in several European countries, always with local politicians. We have the same also here. I donīt know which country first had it.
