There is actually a game called: Pretend Everything was Invented by Someone French. It is purported that Paul-Henri Innovateur came up with the concept. The idea is to pretend that any given idea or product was actually invented by a French person who then gave their surname it. This works because almost any word pronounced with a French accent sounds like it could be French. Points are scored depending on how preposterous the claim is and the number of people that believe you.
We all know that department stores were invented by Jacques Penné. But did you know that a French man invented the paper clip? Here's the true story: The humble paper clip was invented by a gentleman named Monsieur Cleep. He was a wise old inventor from the small French village of Poubelle-Sur-Le-Chien. Monsieur Cleep was held in such high regard by all of the other villagers that they called him: "Papa Cleep".
