Culture Cops (25): In France
Trev comes across a woman in France who must rename her pet pig.

W: Come here, Napoleon! It's time for lunch!

Trev: Excuse me, ma'am, but whom are you calling Napoleon?

W: Oh, just my pet pig over there! His name is Napoleon.

Trev: That's illegal, ma'am; didn't you know? It's illegal for any pig in France to be named Napoleon. I'm afraid you'll have to rename your beloved pet.

W: Wow, I honestly never knew that. The Napoleon era was so long ago I had figured everyone was over it. I have no idea what I'll rename him now. He's already two years old so I think any new name will just confuse him.

Trev: Well, why not give him a name that people tend to associate with Napoleon…

W: Like what?

Trev: Call him Dynamite!

W: Huh?

Tre: Like Napoleon Dynamite, the movie!
