Damn, those French are jumpy…

France is known for its overly strict policing of baby names, but in the case of a couple trying to call their son ‘Jihad’, French authorities might have a point.
A French couple from the south west have been reported to authorities for calling their baby ‘Jihad’.

The couple, who come from the Toulouse suburb of Léguevin, tried to name their son ‘Jihad’ when he was born in August but the local town hall immediately alerted the public prosecutor to their controversial choice of name.

    Took a cab one night in Detroit in the 90s. He was driving like a bat out of hell on a freeway in the snow and we did a 360 across 4 lanes of traffic. When I looked at his license I saw that his first name was Jihad.

    What? your baby is not worthy of bearing the name Mohammad…. like a blue zillion other babies?

    Just imagine the hilarity and carnage one day in 18 years, when he goes to the Parisian Starbucks, and they call out his name when his mochalottacrapafrappacino order is ready…

    Well, at least it isn’t Mohammed…. Just think 40 years ago, the French named their kids Pierre, Jacques. Now it is Mo and Jihad. How the west has fallen.

    His parents named him rightly. There is more than one type of jihad,in this case the war of demographics. They intend to out breed us.
