Oh My God! I'm Actually Light Headed From Laughing So Much!

I've written previously about French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who railroaded an anti-piracy bill through the French assembly, with a three-strikes rule and all kinds of stuff to stop French people from pirating movies and music by abusing their rights (the bill violates the EU Constitution, and he got it passed anyway).

Sarkozy just got busted pirating DVD's.

According to the Huffington Post, "A French paper, Le Canard Enchaine, has busted French President Nicolas Sarkozy for pirating 400 copies of a DVD. They even went so far as to doctor up a new DVD jacket, replacing the original DVD maker's name and logo ("Galaxie Presse") with a line crediting the President's "AV service" ("Service audiovisuel de la presidence de la Republique".)"  At least, that's what the Huffington Post SAID.  They took it down, and you get a 404 error if you try to call it back up.  (I've long been annoyed by the Huffington Post, and for them to attempt to hide like this reaffirms my suspicions about them.)

Lulz, nothing.  This is a lollercoaster!
