Two francs is what it costs to go to the restroom in France.

Beware putting words in your fair Chancelier's mouth. The Academie
doesn't "promote" GOOP dances. That's different than excluding
them. For example, historically, Nothing but Dance has had a GOOP
_class_ and no GOOP dances at the ball. I know I repeat this a lot,
but the topic has a lot of controversy surrounding it, and it's worth
pointing out what my real position is.
