Dear Christian Dior,

I don’t think I’ve ever written a letter to France before, so I hope this gets to the right people! I’m writing in regards to the whole Sharon Stone controversy.

I’m glad to see you dropped Sharon Stone like a hot potato, but what I don’t get is what took you so long? Want to talk about karma, putting her saggy funbags in any ad is a moral outrage. Any idiot could have seen this one coming. Sharon Stone is a complete nut job. A loon. Crazy!

It’s good you are doing your part in making sure she just goes away, but could you try to be a bit more careful in the future? I don’t expect a reply, but all the same, would love one.

I’ve never gotten a letter from France before.

“Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite!”

Sincerely,


Christopher L. Jorgensen

Subject: Your letter

Dear Sir,

We feel deeply concerned about the letter you sent us on Thursday, May 29, 2008 and we thank you for taking the time to send us your comments.  We are pleased to inform you that they were forwarded to our advertizing department immediately.

We want you to know that Sharon Stone’s comments made recently in Cannes are purely her personal opinion.  Her reaction does not reflect her already reaffirmed sympathy and true compassion for the victims of the earthquake.

In any event, Dior does not share or relate to any personal opinions expressed by Ms Stone, who presented her apologies directly through Chinese media.  Given the current circumstances, Parfums Christian Dior China has decided to withdraw and stop all advertising, point of sales and printed materials featuring Ms Sharon Stone.

Moreover Dior associates in the mourning of China and expresses its deepest sorrow for the victims of the Sichuan tragedy and their families.

Hoping that you will remain loyal to Dior, please rest assured of our highest consideration.

Commentary:

Oh boy. Here I thought they were going to take me to task, instead they pretty much agree with me.

I like to imagine this letter being read in a French accent. I’d make fun of the English, but Charlyne’s English is better than my French. I was so excited to get this letter. I was afraid I wouldn’t get to put the term “saggy funbags” on the internet. And if there’s one thing the internet needs it’s more saggy funbags!

This letter was pretty much unexpected and lightning fast! Two week turnaround to France and back, and France has to at least as far away as Washington, D.C. (PETA took almost two months and that’s where they are).

The funny thing about this whole thing is I have no idea what Christian Dior even does. I mean, if they made antipsychotic drugs they obviously wouldn’t be dropping Sharon Stone. I broke down and looked them up. Well, they don’t make antipsychotics.

“Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite!”

Anyone know what the French is for “Saggy Funbags?”
