Notre Dame In Paris To Be Restored With Original Gothic Style Spire

The spire of Notre Dame Cathedral which was destroyed in a fire in April of 2019 will be restored according to the original Gothic design French President Emmanuel Macron announced a couple of days ago.

Macron had originally said after the fire that he was in favour of a “contemporary gesture”.

However the French President wanted the restoration to be completed by 2024 when Paris is hosting the Olympics for that year (assuming of course that most of humanity hasn’t died off from the Covid-19 virus or died off from massive carbon dioxide poisoning after having worn face masks 24 hours a day in the last idiotic decree of the WHO and numerous politicians around the world).

The process of designing a contemporary modern spire with an international competition for architects of no doubt exceedingly bad taste would have caused unnecessary delays.

France’s National Heritage and Architecture Commission thus recommended going with a spire in the original Gothic design.

The Cathedral’s first spire was built in the 13th Century but due to extensive damage it had to be removed in the late 18th Century.

Its replacement, designed in the Gothic style by architect Eugene Violett-le-Duc, was built in the mid-19th Century.

Jean-Louis Georgelin (the French Army General put in charge of the reconstruction effort) wanted a modern or maybe even a post-modern alternative to replace Violett-le-Duc’s Gothic design.

Architects from around the world submitted designs including one design with a rooftop pool and another with a giant park and greenhouse on the roof.

Australia’s notorious Uncle Ernie had even submitted an architectural design that showed a giant male phallus surrounded by pancakes.

It was mercifully lost in the mail.

The cathedral’s chief architect Philippe Villeneuve consistently spoke out in favour of a faithful restoration of the previous 19th Century Gothic style design.

This upset Gen. Georgelin and in a heated exchange at a meeting of the French National Assembly’s Cultural Affairs Committee last November, the General told Monsieur Villeneuve to shut his mouth.

Seconds later, Gen. Georgelin had a Devonshire Cheese cream pie thrown in his face by an invisible entity.

Although a few Harvey Wallbanger imbibing members of the committee swore it was a 6 foot 8 tall bunny rabbit with big pink floppety ears who did the deed.


Esmeralda and her pet goat Djali look on in horror at some of the proposed designs for Notre Dame’s spire.

    IT WILL BE COSTLY—HUMANITY-WISE (AS THE ORIGINALS WERE)

    After reading the first three paragraphs, I thought Uncle Ernie should do the architectural work and then Uncle Ernie was there but alas his design got lost. Enjoyed the read hahahaha

      Thank you, Kritika. 🙂

      I guess great minds think alike. 🤪

      Uncle Ernie does the best architectural work when it comes to architectural bad taste. 😂

      • Kritika said,

        😂🤣 Very bad taste he has in architecture. 😝

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        The architect of the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada very much regets the fact that he accidentally grabbed Uncle Ernie’s drafted design in an envelope rather than his own and presented it to Edmonton City Council.

        Of course the brainless idiots on Edmonton City Council naturally approved of Uncle Ernie’s design.

        Which meant the architect had to build the gallery using Uncle Ernie’s design and therefore forever ruin his (the architect’s) own good name and reputation .

        And Uncle Ernie always complains about the fact that he (Uncle Ernie) was never paid money for his award winning Edmonton city council approved design for the Art Gallery.

      • Kritika said,

        Hahaha I pity Uncle Ernie. Looks like his bad architectural taste is not that bad.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        And it looks even better after you sample his drugs. 😜😂

      • Kritika said,

        hahahaha this is why the design was accepted, I guess.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Exactly. 😂🤣

    Great news, Christopher.
    Especially the rejection of Uncle
    Ernie’s “Aroused Platypus” design.
    I tried to tell him he had to be
    culturally sensitive. He assumed
    that if Emmanuel Macron fell for
    the designs of an aroused cougar,
    why not an upright platypus?

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      There was definite method to Uncle Ernie’s madness.

      Little did he realize that Macron only falls for aroused cougars.

      • David Redpath said,

        His miscalculation.
        At least Uncle Ernie has the
        satisfaction of designing the
        Art Gallery of Alberta, in Edmonton.
        Whenever he’s in Canada to visit
        love child, Justin Bieber, he takes
        the opportunity to soak in the sight
        of something he’s very proud of
        ( the art gallery, not Justin Bieber).
        Despite the lack of due recognition,
        and remuneration 💵

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I’m relieved to hear that Uncle Ernie does not take pride in siring Justin Bieber.

        I can just picture Aeschylus or Shakespeare writing a tragedy on the subject with the title The Sperm That Got Away (A Tragedy in Two Minutes).😢

      • David Redpath said,

        As an international jet-setter,
        constantly avoiding justice, old
        Uncle Ernie is renowned for his
        lack of longevity in the cargo hold
        department. He’s often found in
        the arrivals lounge 🚬 well before
        any fellow traveller has taken off ✈️

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        A most apt aviation age description of Uncle Ernie’s prowess in a certain field. 🤔

    Haha I can sympathize with horror the humans felt but even the goat? Sorry I can’t help laughing 😂
