“Water is made to sail or wash …” says an old retired Breton sailor I know well.

In French, “le phare” is pronounced the same way as “le far”, thus the play on word of this picture. “Flotte” is also a play on words as it can mean “water” or “a float of boats”. Bretons went far because of their fishing traditions.

Le Four Light : “Le four” means “the oven” in French but here le phare du four is “Le Four Light”, a lighthouse.

“Van Diemen’s Land Steam Co. saved to Towers in the Storm: Le Four Light – Chenal du Four, France, Le Four Light (1874) is a round stone tower with lantern & gallery mounted on a square base, it is unpainted with a painted black lantern. The lighthouse marks the north entrance to the Chenal du Four.”https://www.pinterest.ch/VanDiemensLand/

“For dessert we’d have my mother’s far breton (…), which is a typical Breton snack. It’s like a large flan baked in a big earthenware dish, a mixture of custard and creme brulee. We make ours with prunes soaked overnight in rum.” https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2015/may/15/richard-bertinet-far-breton-recipe-last-bites?CMP=share_btn_link

The same companies can’t get enough of our money; they poison us with their food (that we buy more and more because of the craving feeling it creates) and poison our democracy by corrupting politicians and scientists to make their poison legal. Thus craving for more and more money.
