On this day, September 20 A.D. 1977, the French government made their final execution by lethal guillotine. Well, not that there's such a thing as a non-lethal guillotine in all honesty. Well, I guess if you don't sharpen the blade regularly it could be less-than-lethal and really more of an annoyance and creator of severe headaches, back problems, and neck cricks. But that's another topic altogether.
Seriously, though, this was the last time that France put someone to death using one of their famed head chopper offers. His name was Hamida Djandoubi and he was convicted of torture and murder and then executed at Baumettes Prison in Marseille.
Hey, I'm not BSing you. This is for real here, folks! You're learning something on this site!
In honor of the execution of Hamida and to celebrate one of the greatest instruments of execution ever devised, I want you to run around draped in a French flag with dozens of cigar cutters hanging around your neck (unless you actually have access to the real deal) and yell "Viva la France!" all day long.
Fitèna will love you for it.
