Dominique Strauss-Kahn: Hello Twitter! Jack is back!

with 2 comments

Ripping Good Fun from Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

The UK’s reputation as the leading Clown Country – the home of stars like  Asghar Bukhari  (Zionists ate my shoe) and George Galloway (Mia-ow!)  -faces stiff competition from Dominique Strauss-Kahn today.

France 24 reports,

Disgraced former IMF boss and one-time French presidential hopeful Dominique Strauss-Kahn made a bizarre public debut Sunday on Twitter, the go-to social network for politicians, pop stars and journalists.

“Hello Twitter! Jack is back,” the once hugely popular Socialist politician declared on his (verified) Twitter account.

His inaugural post has since been retweeted 2,400 times (1) and he has already garnered 20,000 followers since creating his account.

Known by his initials DSK in France, Strauss-Kahn was seen as France’s best shot for president in the 2012 election, won by fellow Socialist François Hollande.

But his bid for the presidency was scuppered in May 2011 when a New York hotel maid accused him of sexual assault, an incident that destroyed his political ambitions and forced him to step down as head of the IMF.

His alleged victim Nafissatou Diallo dropped charges in the civil case against DSK when he settled out of court for an undisclosed sum. But his legal woes and the damage to his reputation didn’t end there.

In July 2011 journalist Tristane Banon filed a legal complaint against DSK, claiming he had attempted to rape her, but French prosecutors later dropped the charges for lack of evidence.

DSK was also hauled through the courts on charges of “aggravated pimping” in the so-called “Carlton Affair” trial, during which his lurid sexual proclivities – including Viagra-fuelled group sex romps – were enthusiastically reported.

Strauss-Kahn admitted taking part in orgies, but denied knowing that the participants were paid prostitutes and was cleared on June 12 of any criminal wrongdoing.

If “Jack is back”, the French are certainly paying attention.

The Independent signals,

One anonymous contributor to the Le Monde website pointed out that “jack” had a particular meaning in the Urban Dictionary, an on-line compilation of streetwise slang. “ JACK=Highly Attractive and Sexually Intriguing Individual. An Ultimate Sex God.”

Here is what was said, (le Monde )

Urban Dictionary: JACK=Highly Attractive and Sexually Intriguing Individual. An “Ultimate Sex God” …C’est tout à fait ça!😀 … J’invite mes amis lecteurs à se familiariser avec le slang. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Jack (definition “4”) La 6 est pas mal non plus…

My bet is that DSK would also like this definition of Jack (Urban Dictionary).

The hottest most sexiest guy on the planet. a real comedian, but sometimes doesn’t stop talking. has the hottest eyes, hair, and body. a swimmer.
I love jack!
Though perhaps not this (in the plural):
Toilet in Ireland. Usually the gent’s toilet. Usually covered in piss maybe with a shite in the urinal. Accompanied by humorous and often informative graffiti.

L’Express  airs other  theories,

It’s a reference to a restaurant in the town of  Ocre, le Jack is back.

Or,

It’s a reference to the film L.A. Confidential,  in which  Kevin Spacey,  as Jack Vincennes, ‘comes back’ to fight again.

Or,

It alludes to Jack Torrance de Shiningan in “”All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”

Other theories include Jack Sparrow (Johnny Deep, Pirates of the Caribbean), Jack the Ripper…..and so it goes.

(1) At present (15.52) it’s 3,800 retweets and 32.900 followers.

  1. There is no justice in this world. I was so hoping he’d be sentenced to 120 days….

  2. Do a majority of the French still think he was framed? Even after he paid the maid supposedly US$1.5m?
