John Oliver about the Paris attacks: He's betting on the French

Profanity Alert. It's not that he uses so many swear words -only two - just repeated many times. If you are offended by the kind of humor practiced by Jon Stewart (ex Daily Show) and John Oliver, do not bother to read below the break.

But if you are a Francophile - think true French fries, foie gras from the Dordogne, wines of Burgundy and Bordeaux, the scenic country side of Provence, the cafes of Paris - you just might like Oliver's rant.

Here's his bottom line: "Nothing about what these assholes are trying to do is going to work" Oliver said. "France is going to endure. And I'll tell you why: If you're in a war of culture and lifestyle with France, good fucking luck."

Now check out the video clip of Oliver blasting ISIS and celebrating French culture (at vox.com).
