Vive le Voltaire!

Following up on my last post on a great French writer, I read somewhere that Voltaire drank 60 cups of coffee a day. No wonder he had such a bitchy wit!

But I give him credit for writing a play called Mohamet. In the 18th century that play could be performed in Paris. Today it cannot.

If I drank that much coffee, they'd have to put a lead lining in my stomach. :P

Maybe they have small cups in france. Certainly not 60 ventis from Starbucks.
