Quirky Euro Files: French Guillotine Chic!

Apparently in la belle France, Frenchmen are now rushing to a new website where they can see if they have an ancestor who was kissed by Madame Guillotine during the French Revolution.

It's now tres chic to be related to the doomed aristocrats of old.

“Avez-vous eu un ancêtre decapité pendant la révolution?”

Hm, why do I suddenly want to go read The Scarlet Pimpernel?
