Paris is indeed famously known as the City of Light (La Ville-lumière).

Not the "City of Lights" as I thought when I wrote this strip. Naturally I had to change it to the correct version. It hurts the plurality-matching of the grammar slightly, but not enough to scrap the gag.

By the way, if you ever plan going to Paris, and want to check out the official website (paris.fr), don't be suckered in by the sleazy paris.com and paris.org tourism "portals" that are listed above it in a Google search, for some unfathomably stupid reason.


2019-02-16 Rerun commentary: Paris.fr is still the official website of the city of Paris, but there's now also an official Paris Tourist Office site, which may be more handy for planning a trip to the city. I'm not sure if it tells you how to avoid all the traffic lights, though.
