The Date: 14 Julliet 1789

The Bastille, that mighty symbol of royal might, is being stormed by a revolutionary mob!

Louis and Marie Antoinette are nowhere to be found, cowards that they are! Just look at the excess, the depravity of their court!*


</i>n/b, I may have made up some or all of that French. The fashions in the picture are more consistent with the 1770s than late 1780s, but I think it gets the point across.

Marie Antoinette picture from fashiontweet.net; the Bastille picture should be in the public domain.

When you comment on this post, pretend it's 14 July 1789 and you are French!</i>

That bitch told me to eat cake, and I did. But it was German chocolate instead of Devil's Food, I was so mad.

Le royauté devra rembourser tout ce que les Français ont souffert par leur faute!

L'autricienne! Take down the Swiss soldiers and free our men! Finally, French class comes in handy. ok, so there were just rich people in the Bastille, but they didn't know that....

Wellll, they didn't storm the Bastille to free the prisoners inside (all seven of them!); they stormed it to take its weapons. :D

Peasants to the left, aristocratic over-privileged nobility to the right. Let's settle this with pitchforks.

I still have no goddamned bread. While the boys down the street are ditching their culottes and trying to play philosopher I have a family to feed.
