Since 1790, bakers in Paris have been required to inform city hall when they wished to take a vacation. The intent of this law was to ensure a proper supply of fresh-baked bread. Now that law has been stricken from the books, and there is, apparently, a shortage of baguettes.

To top things off, there’s classic intra-Europe conflict involved in this story, as the French media has accused the British of exaggerating the issue. If they did, at least it’s hilarious.
