Bastille Day

It's Bastille day... I'd like to honor our Cheese-Eating-Surrender-Monkey Brothers across the pond, but I ain't rightly sure what I should do. Should I run up a white flag and surrender to the nearest Bavarian Grenadier?* Pick a fight with an Englishman and get my ass kicked?** Drag out my trusty Guillotine and start beheading nobles of the Bourbon persuasion?*** Find a short Corsican Artilleryman with a small... nevermind... where was I? Oh! Find a short Corsican Artilleryman and proclaim him Emperor?****

What to do?

*See Franco-Prussian War
** See Churchill, John, Duke of Marlborough
or Wellesley, Arthur, Duke of Wellington
*** See Louis XVI
**** See Bonaparte, Napoleon
