so far I thought I would do french hygiene. Anyone have better ideas? It has to be about modern society.

I'd go with that. They don't know what deodorant is. And that's icky. (Not to mention extremely smelly at 5 PM on the Metro after a day that reached about 98)

Here's a joke I heard somewhere. Something for your essay, Per.

A french woman hails a cab in Paris. She raises her arm and the armpit hair shows out. A person sitting in the nearby cafe calls her and asks "would you like to sit down and have a drink with me, Mrs. Ballerina?" -"Why do you think i'm a ballerina?" she replies. "Well what other woman could lift up her leg so high?"

We read an article on disproving french myths, and one was the hygiene issue. So I could either support and disprove this.

I really don't know what though, I might write about the film La Haine because I enjoyed it. But I hate talking about films.
