Everyone has either visited or seen pictures of Paris. The Eiffel tower, the bridges, people kissing in black and white… Tourists flock to its busy streets every year to discover that everything is not as they thought it would be. Here's a few funny examples!

There's two types of people in the world : Parisians and normal people

Only joking. In France, there's always been an underlying tension between people who live in Paris, and people who live in the rest of France. It's a sort of inverted snobbery, with both parties ending up being as snobbish as the other. We hold no truck for that sort of silly judgments. However, we do know that there's some weird things to be seen in Paris. This is how the world imagines Paris:
