@patience They're usually pretty good. I think the puns are usually with English in mind (and you can tell that some of the French is trying to copy or mimic the English) but occasionally the French ones are completely different and clever.

C-tire's branding has got me.

@patience but does the french version ("Frank is one muscle-bound chip" if I don't miss my guess) have a terrible pun in it too? If not does that constitute grounds for a lawsuit?

@eqe sometimes products here will have a pun or florid name in one language but not another

this happens a lot with PC brand products, esp in recent years
