Hey, let's pick on people who call them "freedom fries" and "freedom toast" now because France is against us on Iraq. The restaurant Cubbie's in North Carolina made headlines for it, then other restaurants followed suit, and I read today that the House of Representatives is officially in on the act. Picking on France seems to be our second national pastime - it's only a matter of time until someone drags out that old Jerry Lewis myth on this - but "freedom fries" seems especially silly. Freedom from what? A cool-headed preference for peace?

French Fries aren't even from France anyway, so I'm sure the French don't really care about this.America is turning more into a grade school playground every day.

I was notified that it's "liberty toast," not "freedom toast." Oops. Such an important distinction. I saw video footage of an eager American crowd cheering as they poured bottles of French wine down into the sewer drain, and I thought, oh man, I hope that mob finds French Stewart.

What is this world coming to? Nothing enrages me quite like the wastage of perfectly good alcohol.

now I know another reason why my European friends call Americans "yanks"Anna, can't you just picture Georgey Porgey in lil' gym shorts perched delicately atop the cement rocket ship in an elementary school playground, jeering "nanny nanny boo boo stick your head in doo doo?" Yep, that's who *I* want leading our nation to its demise...

George the schoolyard bully I somewhat see, but George the drunken frat leader I see more prominently. Instead of a real war between opposing nations, this could be a prank war between competing fraternities. He even calls his defense secretary "Rummy," like that's not a frat nickname.

In today's news, the Bush Administration is considering punishing France for its stance before the invasion of Iraq. Again I ask: Why does this administration think the world fucking hates us?
