The french connection

I eat french toast.
I eat french bread.
I eat french fries. Even if they may originally be Belgian.

I have no intention of letting the morons over in Washington, D.C. try to newspeak my food.
They can take this 'Freedom Fries' idiocy and go french kiss a light socket.

I agree 100% This has to be the BIGGEST waste of time and energy. What stupidity...

I agree with you on that one. Complete stupidity.

And to preserve liberty, and prove my patriotism, I'm going to go pour out the French wine I have in my wine rack!

... I'll just make sure it gets poured carefully into wine glasses ;)

It's idiotic. Fortunately, from what I hear most of the people on the Hill are regarding it with patronizing bemusement or eye rolling.

I eat American fries. They're pretty much the same as French fries, except that they contain about equal proportions of fat, salt, and potato, rather than being composed of mostly potatoes. (Best served with orange, cheese-like liquid.) You can find them in most fine restaurants where everyone below the level of Vice President of Marketing is required to wear a silly hat.

Yeah, well, this is true. But American Fries has three more syllables, and doesn't just roll off the tongue.

...

Err, please forget I just used that metaphor. O.o

Actually, if prepared right, they -do-... Umn, never mind...

I'd suggest "Yank' Fries", but that term has plenty of its own problems...

Back during the Great War, we called French Fries "Liberty Cabbage"!

Chips, I prefer chips.

Fries are kinda small and pointy and generally no good for you, chips on the other hand are probably even worse but at least fill you up.

I'm sure the french are mortified that we've decided we no longer want to mis-label one of the leading causes of american obesity after them. I know I would be tragically wounded.

Then again, according a recent poll, 75% of New Yorkers oppose war against Iraq. Anyone want a big plat of Freedom-style CheeseCake or a Freedom Pizza?

*sigh* I should shut up before someone thinks that's a serious suggestion.
