PARIS (TCR) - French sport officials announced that the first stage of the Tour De France will be in London.
But sources on both sides indicate it is a sinister plot by France to invade London.
"You think we would just give them part of the race?" a French official asked, speaking under the condition of anonymity. "We've waged wars over less. They will never know what hit them!"
Basil St. Brean, a British interior official, acknowledged the threat but said they were taking no steps to stop it.
"Honestly, do you know nothing about the French military history?" St. Brean asked. "We're actually looking forward to saving money on bedsheets by simply collecting all the surrender flags from the French when they arrive."
