The Fries No Longer Known As French

There is a restaurant in North Carolina which no longer sells French Fries, they sell Freedom Fries, as a expression of their dislike of the French. Now French Fries are about as french as Ghandi was. I don’t remember the origins of them but I do know that they are not french.
Sometimes I wonder where some Americans get these thoughts. Show your dislike for the french by not eating french fries. What’s next? Here is a hand guide to familar foods and phrases in anti-France America:
French Toast = Freedom Toast
Chocolate Eclair = Chocolate Freedom Pastry
Deja Vu = Something that feels like it’s happened before in the name of Freedom
Jerry Lewis = Jerry “The Freedomator” Lewis
Just to name a few. Come up with you own. It’s a fun game. Crazy Americans.

    Can’t forget the freedom kiss!
    Silly silly Americans. Of course it’s in the part of the US where everyone lives in a small hick town of 500 people.

  3. heh. how about:
    – getting a ‘freedom’ manicure
    – or having some ‘freedom’ salad dressing
    – and, my personal favourite – celebrate with some ‘freedom’ kissing ;o)

  4. Heh heh. I like them all Kristen but especially the Freedom kiss (as Suzy also stated) πŸ™‚
    I can see the propaganda ad’s now “If you support the War in Iraq and you want to show that special someone that you love them slip them the tongue! Give them a “freedom” kiss!” πŸ™‚

  5. *sigh* I love America so much, but most of the time, my fellow Americans really piss me off.
    We’re not *all* retards! Really!
    How embarrassing…

  6. and of course, the handy Freedom Letters…

  7. Justis: I realize that not all Americans are as crazy as this guy πŸ™‚ I actually have many good American friends to prove it as well plus all of the American blogs I read and link to πŸ™‚

  8. How about the menage a trois? No self-respecting American would call it anything but a “threesome for freedom” these days.
