Quel Est Le Point?

Quel Est Le Point?

By Sara Jonsson

Quel Est Le Point (What Is the Point) is a very useful little philosophical nugget. You can use it for superficial and basic things like when you're dumbfounded, exasperated, at your wit's end, or feeling a little French and think those around you could benefit from an eye roll. Or you can use it in the way that makes you contemplate what has plagued man since the dawn of our existence. What is the point? Is there a point? Do I care if there is a point? Does there need to be a point? Can I eat this McFlurry if there is no point? It is the question. Well, after a few hours of intense study, we're ready to tell you what what really matters in this life. Quel suspense!
