Green Acres, France (Formerly known as Paris) - In a highly mobilized effort to save face for France's multi-billion dollar tourism industry, French telecommunication corporations, national internet providers and everyday common citizens joined forces yesterday, to fight for the reputation and dignity of it's most historic and beloved city.

In a well-coordinated country-wide campaign, French citizenry rushed to funnel their attentions, opinions and anger through specialized high volume communications technology, in hopes of forging a national response to the latest and possibly most embarrassing antics of American hotel heiress, Paris Hilton.

Through a developed series of rapidly thrown-together, but deeply integrated internet write-in suggestion blogs, radio sponsored call-in shows and telecomm directed text messaging systems, the people from the world's City of Love near unanimously agreed to change their home's log-standing and storied title.

"The guilt-by-association factor simply became too much for the people of Green Acres to bear", flatly explained French National Public Relations Director, Rene-Jean Simon, in front of attentive press representatives and media this morning at the Bureau of Tourism and Travel. "We simply got sick of even being seen on the same "Google" page as that spoiled little tramp", the thinly mustached speaker added more emphatically from behind his wooden perch in the building's lobby. .

According to the results accumulated through street side surveys and government operated polling over the last 24 hours, most people inside the popular wine and cheese tasting providence seemed both, eager and happy, to dump the Paris name for something that provided "a little more positive visual imagery".

"Her picture actually lowers our internet wine and food sales", Mr. Simon pointed out while reciting her detrimental effects on France's culinary-based economy. Concluding ultimately that, the decadent Ms. Hilton "was basically, unappetizing".

Submitted to a small suburban radio station by local cheese vendor, Marceau DuBois, the name Green Acres surged in popularity among phone-in and on-line voters seeking a more dignified and representative metropolitan designation. Rumored to have come from Mr. Dubois' favorite U.S. television rerun, of the same name, the identity apparently appealed to the French urban population. Most agreeing that it appeared better suited for the plush emerald-colored environments of France, than the olive-toned Hollywood sets of 1960's southern California.
