    Grand Prix de la Culture!
    No less!
    Not for the Arts, no, for Cültüre! (try your best french accent)

    Means for being able to eat from a table cloth without making stains and using knife and fork. That’s ‘culture’.
    For getting dressed and shaved in the morning. That’s culture.

    Clearly Mr. Eyvazov deserves such a price.
    The inventors are to be applauded.
    Even the dog present was so cultured. Mon Dieu. It can bark Lehár’s Merry Widow from memory.
    Vienna, vive le cültüre!

  • Lohengrinloh says:

    Congrats Yusif! Well-deserved! Looking forward to your concert with Anna tonight.

  • Fan says:

    Why has an Austrian prize a French name?

  • Everyone Gets a Trophy says:

    For what exactly?

  • Ms.Melody says:

    The world has gone deaf… and dumb

  • Tamino says:

    Anyway, who is the gorgeous woman in the golden dress? She has lots of culture, I mean, nice… ehh… shoes!

  • Caranome says:

    is he the male gold digger? His marriage to Anna certainly has paid off many ties over.

    Looks like a VERY PRIVATE bank. Were there actually more than 10 people in the room?
