Great Moments in History

Late 1730's France. Apprentice Printers crack the shits at working conditions. Tools down and a stopwork meeting? Not for these crazy kids.

. Apprentice printers living and working on Rue Saint-Séverin in Paris suffered hard conditions and so resented the favours which their masters gave to their cats. They contrived to be ordered to deal with nuisance cats and then slaughtered sackloads of them so as to distress their masters.

Touché Frenchies. Touché indeed.

This has been another TSP Great Moment in History and/or Looking at Wikipedia when you could be doing something more important
