A fool Frog and his money...

I had no idea that the French economy was booming so much that they could waste their money on this kind of crap:
Thrill-seekers in France tired of the usual array of white-knuckle sports are turning to a bizarre new service to get their adrenaline rush -- designer abduction.

For 900 euros ($1,226), clients of Ultime Realite ("Ultimate Reality"), a firm in eastern France, can buy a basic kidnap package where they're bundled away, bound and gagged, and kept incarcerated for four hours.

Alternatively, they can opt for a more elaborate tailor-made psychodrama, involving an escape or helicopter chase for example, where costs can quickly escalate.
Um, if you know that you're going to be kidnapped, and you shell out the money specifically for the helicopter chase, doesn't that kind of ruin the element of surprise? I mean, the helicopter chase is gonna be somewhat anticlimactic if you know that you're probably not going to, you know, die at the end in a fiery crash. That's no fun, is it?

Oh, wait, I get it have someone kidnapped by a bunch of thugs as a present.

Happy birthday!
