Cassoulet Forever – UPDATE

Bizarreness has reached new heights!

All I did was write a little post with a few possible answers to a much asked question, “What does Cassoulet Forever mean?” and something inexplicably exploded. Yesterday when I Googled “Cassoulet Forever” my blog was number three on the list. Today it’s number two.

It has also blown the roof off of my stat chart logging over 500 hits SO FAR today. (Which, by the way, is a lot for my “dull” little blog.)

They even briefly featured it on the French television show Le Petit Journal.

Which, according to Wikipedia, is where the sign originated. At least now we have an answer I guess!

Cassoulet enjoyed a burst of unexpected fame in the United States on election night, November 4, 2008, when a large “Cassoulet” banner along with a smaller “Cassoulet Forever” banner was repeatedly held aloft from a crowd gathered outside ABC News’ Times Square studios in New York. This banner was a joke made for a French TV show named Le Petit Journal presented by Yann Barthès (in Le Grand Journal, Canal+), that was broadcasting from New-York for the election. In a matter of hours, the word was actively looked for over the internet.

This has truly been an Adventure in Dullness!
