France is trying to hold the monopoly on fries

America, Russia and the European Union have brought a landmark lawsuit against France. The summonses were presented to the French Ambassador, Mr French de Paris at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

Confirming the delivery of the summons was the court clerk at the International Court of Justice in The Hague. The case is a long-standing patent lawsuit filed by the lawyers/solicitors of America, Russia and the European Union (also known as the plaintiffs) are in unison against France (also known as the defendant). The plaintiffs are claiming against the defendant for loss of income, false labeling and trademark infringement due to forced endorsement of the name French on products and services readily available in every country.

Mr. Norr Piti, lawyer representing America reiterated on this matter as France's arrogance for labeling everything French, "You go to any take-away or restaurant in America, you are offered French fries, French fritter, French wine or a French loaf, why can't we have an American sounding meal?" he further questioned, "How many American pies and American hot-dogs can you sell to beat the French monopoly?"

Currently France is the largest patent holder; amongst them are French kiss, French loaf, French toast, French fries, French fashion, French fritter, French Wine, French omelette, French Poodle, etc.

Solicitor representing Britain, Mr. Blur D. Sukr, responded without mincing his words, "The French falsely romanticize their products, attempting to give them appeal and style, and this case in point is the French Poodle that hastily pressurized us in Britain to respond with the British Bulldog, not classy on our part if I may say so", decried Mr. Sukr.

Mr. Nyet Sober, representative for Russia mumbled inaudibly, "Vhot is dis ... vhy vee only famous for Russian Vodka?"

The summons also indicates the intention to stop the unwarranted product placement of Plaster of Paris, Water of Paris and all de Paris products.
