C’est une idée fixe de l’auteur. Une sorte de la triste bourde.Aussi, cet auteur est possédé du démon de la vengeance, car un jour de vengeance était dans son cœur. Pas moins triste, pas moins bourdais.It's a pet project of the autor. Kind of sad trash.Also the autor is posessed by the fiend of the vengeance, for the day of vengeance was in his heart. None the less sad, none the less trashy.See More
