A young Parisian chef, frustrated at being unable to obtain fine rabbits for his gourmet meals, decided to raise them himself and sell them to the city's fine restaurants. He searched Paris for a suitable place to raise his rabbits, but with no luck until an old priest at the cathedral said he could use a small area behind the rectory. His first crop bred, well, like rabbits, and soon he was selling them to all the better Parisian restaurants.
And when a chef inquired as to where he could get such fresh rabbits here in the city, the young man always replied, "I raise them myself, behind the cathedral. I have a... hutch back of Notre Dame!"
