Speed Rabbit Pizza

Saw this place in Paris.

You have to wonder what they were thinking.

Well the French do eat rabbit…

It is a bit odd as the French word for ‘rabbit’ is ‘lapin’. Which reminds me that the phrase ‘chaud lapin’; literally ‘hot rabbit’ actually means ‘randy’.
But there we are; the difficulty of selecting names that are not going to offend in another country. The Germans used to be amused by the Rolls Royce ‘Silver Mist’ because ‘mist’ means ’s**t’ in German and the Argentines thought that ‘Pajero’ was an odd name for a car because a ‘Pajero’ in their country is a homosexual and there used to be a car called a Nissan ‘Cedric’ chosen because ‘Cedric’ means ‘proud warrior’.
I suppose that the French meant that their Pizzas would be delivered as fast as a speeding rabbit; but shouldn’t that be a ‘bullet’.
Oh what the heck!!.

Have a look at Paris Daily Photo for 15 Mai. Giant rabbits in front of Printemps. I thought that the French only really had a fixation about elephants but perhaps it’s now rabbits!

Perhaps it means that only their rabbit topped pizzas are delivered quickly. . have to wait a little longer for the slow Pepperoni. You’re Dad is as quick as you are! Although Pajero means farm worker or straw-maker but it’s a derogatory phrase translated roughly meaning ‘wanker’. (Or so I’m assured by a Chilean friend of mine)
