Marie-Claire found the bouncing of Monsieur La Clampe on the elastic deeply amusing. The most satisfactory part of it was that it looked like there would be no end to it – the amplitude of the up-and-down movement did not abate. He would be unable to come down to collect the 24 million Euro bonus he had just been awarded upon leaving the company he had so successfully restructured by axing 10,000 jobs.
