The Paris Diaries #1 – McFrance

I recently visited Paris and, whilst there, decided to keep a diary (like that Anne Frank lady did) that I could later turn into a comic (unlike Anne Frank, the lazy girl). Here’s the first entry…

Paris Diaries 1 - McFrance (Complete)

  1. There was a Hero at McDonalds in the mid 90s with three patties on a McRib bun. I think it was made for the third crappy Batman movie.

  2. French people love McDonalds. The pretend not to, they said they’re only for the tourists, but they eat that shit up.

    I have to say, I didn’t believe you about the McBaguette– I thought it was a joke. But I Googled it and sure enough, it’s a real thing that really exists in real France. For real. Baffling.

    • We found that they seemed to favour a place by the name of ‘Quick’, which left McDonald’s having to get a little more creative in their attempts to the woo the general public. Hence the existence of the McCafe (also true).

      I agree though, the McBaguette seems like a rubbish, obvious joke to make. I was shocked that they actually exist.

  3. As a frenchman, I can vouch for the fact that McBaguette exist, and that it is delicious, imho. The bread really is much better than the usual burger bum thingy.

    Also, I’m not sure the Baguette thing is that much of an innacurate cliché. I’d say it’s one of the few pretty accurate clichés.

  4. I don’t know if it’s reductive… Also, it was apparently created by a French guy.

    I guess we just like to fit the stereotypes 😀

    • I second that baguettes are the essence of Frenchness. I went to school in Paris and the baguette was omnipresent in my life during that time.
      In my home region, Bavaria, they introduced the MacBratwurst a while ago. Three Nürnberger Bratwürstchen in a bun with Nürnberger mustard. I laughed so hard when I saw it that I cried. Then I actually cried. Then I laughed again.

  5. awesome strip as always! We (spaceboydream guys) recently got back from Paris too.. had a gem of a comic book store right in front of our hotel (although most were in French.. still awesome artwork) did you get the Metro to Cluny la Sorbonne? Endless comic shops.. and I’m guessing since you’re a comic artist you’d be interested. We spent hours rummaging 🙂
