“It’s not a recession unless it’s from the Recession region of France…” (joke)

"Champagne” is sometimes used as a generic term for sparkling wine, but legally, it must come from the Champagne wine region of France. A joke was posted on Twitter by Seth Mandel on July 25, 2022:

“It’s not a recession unless it’s from the Recession region of France otherwise it’s just sparkling misery.”

Similar jokes using this meme include “It’s only moaning if it’s from the Moan region of France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling whine,” “It’s only physics if it’s from the Physique region of France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling math,” “It’s only poetry if it’s from the Poet region of France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling whine,” “It’s only Quarantine if it’s in the Quarante province of France. Otherwise it’s just Sparkling Isolation,” “It’s only sour grapes if it comes from the Sourgrape region of France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling whine,” “It’s only turkey if it’s from the farm region of Turkey. Otherwise, it’s sparkling chicken,” “Omicron must come from the Omicrônne region of France, otherwise it’s just sparkling covid” and “Real Targét has to be from the Targét region of France, otherwise, it’s just sparkling Walmart.”

Remember, it’s only a recession if it comes from the Recession region of France. Otherwise, it’s only sparkling misery.

This is not a recession because it doesn’t come from the Récession region of France.
This is merely sparkling poverty.

JUST SPARKLING
ECONOMIC PAIN.
