The French Are Coming For Our Sausages

The deli case at Publican Quality Meats.
DNA Chicago reports that a particular type of sausage, the "morteau," actually has a protected name. Sort of like Champagne, a morteau is a smoked sausage that has to come from the Morteau region of France. Apparently, if PQM doesn't shape up, it'll be the guillotine for all of them.
So, PQM has decided to host a naming contest on their facebook page. Our favorites so far?
- Call it Champagne
- Illegal French Sausage
- Freedom Sausage
- Chicago's mor-teau'in the line
- Overly-Sensitive Small French Commune Sausage
- Kahan't Touch This
Someone call Abe Froman, stat.
