The name Deux Grenouilles is French for ‘Two Frogs’. The photo on the front label includes a Citroën 2CV. 2CV stood for ‘deux chevaux’ or ‘deux chevaux-vapeur’, which translates from French to English as two steam horses or two tax horsepower, a reference to the low cost of registering the car, and more generally the low cost of buying and maintaining the car. It has many parallels to the Volkswagen Beetle. This was the car Manfred wanted when he turned 18 years old.
