Candidates give a helping hand
The French paper Le Figaro has convinced 11 of the French presidential candidates (minus Phulippe de Villiers) to scan a picture of their hand for an online game. The point of the game is to try and match the hand with the candidate.
I lost hands down, only managing to get the three easiest: Le Pen (being the oldest) and Royal and Buffet (two of the three women). In addition to the hands, each picture comes with a quote from the candidate. Using the game as a remarkable campaign opportunity, Nicolas Sarkozy promised that when he runs for reelection in 2012, he'll make sure that each candidate gets fingerprinted too....ok, the translation isn't exact.
