CNN: House cafeterias change names for 'french' fries and 'french' toast
The cafeteria menus in the three House office buildings changed the name of "french fries" to "freedom fries," in a culinary rebuke of France stemming from anger over the country's refusal to support the U.S. position on Iraq.
Ditto for "french toast," which will be known as "freedom toast."
The name changes were spearheaded by two Republican lawmakers who held a news conference Tuesday to make the name changes official on the menus.
Puh-lease! The whole thing reminds me of sauerkraut being redubbed "victory cabbage" during WWI. Of course, today, when I order a hot dog, I top it with...sauerkraut.
And I'll have a side of french fries with that, please.
Update: Long Story, Short Pier comments, "[A]ctually slapping the moniker “freedom fries” on the US House of Representatives cafeteria menus is—well, it’s upholding a long-standing tradition of moronic House grandstanding, but it’s still pathetic. Disappointing, even. —But no longer funny."
