French President Nicolas Sarkozy has been accused of banning tall workers from attending a factory walkabout - because they will make him look too short.
His wife has always made him look short... celebrity/talent wise!
I think that with all his assets being short is the least of his worries!
As a matter of fact, the man seems to be rather hung up about his size.
His wife is taller than himself and he wares high heels hehehe.
And yes, the press reported the fact that people with whom he's seen in photograps are chosen among the shortest.
But the man is not only short.
He is mainly small.
lol. Carla should order him some High heel shoes for men. There are quite a few companies that do them.
Thats something else, maybe I should take my 5'10" self over there and look down on him talking some sense... I could even where heals and be a whopping 6'2"
Thanks for our freedoms
pretty - good things come in small packages - great pic of the big heels - true story by the way
Sounds a bit like Lord Farquaad from Shrek, doesn't it??
Ironically, John Lithgow, the voice of the Lord, is well over 6' tall.
Generally fabulous human, Mr. Lithgow, from what I know.
Sarkozy probably has a Napoleonic complex. Proving he has more power than stature. Very insecure indeed.
Daniel how are you Yes indeed he appears to be suffering from being vertically challenged
I'm very groovy, thank you! (I use the word because it makes people grin...)
I'm in very high gear, moving to new digs. Selling a home out of state and downsizing dramatically. Rather than loss I see it as opportunity, and am fine with all of it.
And how are you my friend?! Woowing the ladies, I trust!!
I heard that he sued the Paris City council.
...... Something about building the footpath to close to his ass!
thats fine with me im only 5'5 seriously thats insane to ban people cuz there tall.
Daniel Great to hear you are doing well - I am also well - today is a busy day in Ireland - news wise - but I wont bore you with that - Good luck with everything - keep us up dated
LOL, I'm surprised he needed to, though. I'm 5'11" and I was taller than most of the men and all of the women I met in France. My 6'4" uncle looked like Aragorn among the hobbits.
Leaders in France are always aware that the people know how to shorten them if they fail badly enough - courtesy Madam Gillotine.
Sadly, American leaders were never made short in that way and they don't fear the consequences of the ire of the mob.
i just think sarcozy is becoming less and less a good leader for france if this is true
It is better to be short in "stature", than to be short in "tolerance and common sense"!

Who makes reclining chairs for tall people?I'm looking for a list of manufacturers that make recliners for tall people. I want the seat to be deep enough so my knees rest just over the edge, the back to be tall enough to support my head when the chair is reclined, and I want the extending...

If you could, would you modify your unborn child's genetics to make the child taller?By tall, I mean over 5'-8", I think that is average in the US. I don't think this is possible at this time, but the question intrigues me.

Why is it That Short People Are More Troublesome Than Tall People?
