Why must they pile their wagons so high? They pile like 80 tons of shit on top thinking they can take it all in a single trip, but does it work? No, something inevitably falls off and crushes a little girl in her communion dress, and the ensuing commotion never fails to startle the drey horse, and the drey horse invariably takes off like a shot through the narrow streets pulling the cart and an old man who got tangled in the reins, and the wailing of the citizenry always sends the Mayor of the town running into the street, and like clockwork the drey horse and the wagon and the half-dead old man nearly run the Mayor down, causing him to drop his pince nez and put his hands to his head and shout, "Sacre Dieu! Telephone Unremitting Failure immediately!" Because that's the thing about the French: while they think nothing of piling 80 tons of shit on a wagon, they all want somebody else to interrogate the horse.
