Le cycliste

We saw a cyclist picking up onions on the way home, and I said to daughter - perhaps he's French? Jokingly. And then had to explain the French national stereotype of Frenchman on bike, with striped jumper,  beret and onions around his neck. 

Or was it garlic?

And we weren't sure,  but there is no reason a Frenchman couldn't have garlic to fend off vampires too. After all, vampires are very generally pretty refined and probably hang out in Parisian garrets.

But decided it was probably onions.

Of course, none of this answers why there were onions in the road.
