Gotta Love the French (Again)

The French are beating themselves up - again - over their beastliness to foreign visitors. 
In a reference to the sometimes gruff welcome offered to tourists, [foreign minister] Fabius said a humorous publicity campaign would be launched, encouraging the French to improve service levels and help tourists when they could. “To put it diplomatically, we have room for improvement here ..."
I'm looking forward to that: they do a pretty good 'humorous publicity campaign' in France.  The Metro is festooned with rather fine posters urging more considerate behaviour (see the animal-based offerings here).

The graffiti on posters are often good for a chuckle, too.  Here's one I found recently.

Earnest, or tongue-in-cheek ?  A Gallic confection of both, probably.

Cheeky sods: bangers and baked beans in tomato sauce make a perfectly healthy course for a nipper. Too much sugar for an adult perhaps, but nipper-friendly.

Hipsters seem to love Paris. I haven't been to France for ages, I need the price of wine to soften a bit.
