If Historical Figures Were Alive Today: Week 5

Marie Antoinette: Wow, the 99% sure have gotten a lot less feisty. Someone let them eat cake, didn’t they? Smart move, politicians, smart move.

English: Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun Marie Antoine...

The French 1% spent all their money on wigs.

Note: According to wikipedia (which, let’s be honest, isn’t the most reliable of sources), Marie Antoinette was actually very charitable and never used the phrase “let them eat cake.” But for the purposes of this post, screw what probably happened. The myth is so much more fun, don’t you think?
