Due to Britney Spears' latest behavior, France has decided to change the name of its famous Brittany region.
"Though our glorious region is not spelled zee same as Ms. Spears' first name, we feel it is close enough to tarnish our province," said the country's tourism minister.
Paris officials are said to be considering changing the name of the French capital as well, since President Chirac finds Paris Hilton gauche.
"We are thinking of replacing Brittany and Paris with Timberlake and Aguilera," said the tourism minister. "But we are still testing zee waters in songs and expressions. We are not sure how 'gay Timberlake' and 'April in Aguilera' will go over."
