French fries are no laughing matter -- especially in France.

Perhaps that's why a Paris man pulled an ax on an unsuspecting McDonald's drive-through crew after getting cold fries with his order, Le Parisien reported.

The attack occurred at a McDonald's in Paris at about 2 a.m. Sunday.

According to police, the 26-year-old man smashed in the drive-through window with the ax, threw it inside and drove off.

Police took him into custody a short time later, The Local reported.
