50, Super Steve! And 10 for each and every response. Was chuckling all the time. Thank y’all, great American friends. There is hope where satire is alive and kicking.

I have been considering one other possible location, because it has a fun history of torture -there is a jolly torture museum showing the most comprehensive collection of clumsy instruments invented by humans to afflict as much as possible slow pain to other humans, think of the devious mind of your CIA, and its walls still contain several skeletons, hidden in so called oubliettes*- but it is also one of the most beautiful spots on earth. It should not be smudged in any way.

See for yourself, plenty pictures on the net: Mont Saint Michel. It is rather near the Northern coast of Normandy. Omaha Beach, you know. Before I begin to sound like a tourist office for France, I offer you a picture of an oubliette. Macron would be glad to be the host again. Extra bonus: no Wifi, no Twitter. I have to add: this is satire. I am against the death penalty, even for irresponsible heads of state.

*oubliette: jail designed to forget the inmate, after he fell through a trapdoor, or ‘last hiding place of Saddam Houssain’.
