Law school exam question

I sent this photo straight to Professor Levy when I saw it. I think it’d make a great exam question for next year’s class at CU Law.

Gary Poppins

Who would be the plaintiff here? P.L. Travers’s estate? Disney? And isn’t the mark somewhat tortured anyway? “Yeah, Poppins because it’s popCORN, get it?” Unless they were going for Poppuns – which I doubt …

 

Destination: CDG

I have been complaining for as long as I’ve been traveling to France that Paris’s main airport, Charles de Gaulle, or Roissy, as it’s known locally, is a confusing, messy dump of an airport. I’m not the only one who thinks so.

But on this visit, I noticed some promising changes. Specifically, to the bathrooms in both Terminal 2 and Terminal 3 – they were clean and well-lighted and well-appointed, far better than I’d seen in the past.

And in Terminal 3, I was able to spot a new and interesting brand:

JUSTINESY

I thought perhaps this was some weird attempt to sound English-ified, but the etymology is in fact far less interesting; the company that owns the brand is Justinesy Frères and they’re a big hygiene products distributor; Patrick Justinesy is its chairman.

Still, I would like to think that someone at CDG besides me is just feeling a little bit, say,  justinesy, about their soap today …
