Yes, there is a Pe Lebrun.  He is, in fact, my wife's uncle.  I am happy to

Port-au-Prince.  In the early eighties he advertised his business in a TV
commercial by sticking his head through a tire and saying "come buy your
tires at Pe Lebrun". When Haitians started burning tires and necklacing
people in late eighties, the slogan "Pe Lebrun" came into use. It is because
of this commercial that the expression "Pe Lebrun" became synonimous for
"necklacing".  His store, Pe Lebrun Tire Store, is located at rue des
