  Dave,

  

  Loved your comments. 

  

  Does that mean a French kiss will now be called a freedom kiss or simply that American freedom fighters would never do a thing that dirty?

  All,

  In case you hadn't already heard, many restaurants around the country have renamed french fries "freedom fries."  As funny as it is sad and stupid, this isn't where the nationalistic stupidity and black & white, us vs. them mentality (and I'm using the word "mentality" liberally here) ends.  Many restaurants are banning french wine, french water, perrier & more.

  

  Among the changes I envision for the near future:

  *         French poodles will be renamed "freedom poodles"

  *         French kisses will be renamed "freedom kisses"

  *         French bread will be renamed "freedom bread"

  *         All French Canadians will now be considered "Freedom Canadians"

  *         "Frenchie" from the movie "Grease" will be renamed "Freedomie"

  *         French horns will be renamed "freedom horns"

  *         The actor "French Stewart" will be renamed "Freedom Stewart"

  *         French Restaurants will either be burned or be renamed "Freedom Restaurants"

  *         The Franco-Prussian war of the 19th century will be renamed "The Freedom-Prussian War"

  *         The expression "Pardon my french" will be renamed "pardon my freedom"

  *         Any and all Francophone cultures will be renamed "Freedom-phone cultures"

  *         German shepherds will be renamed "freedom shepherds"

  *         German cake will be renamed "freedom cake"

  *         German cockroaches will be renamed "freedom cockroaches"

  *         The word "Germane" will be renamed "freedom"

  *         The German Chancellor Gerhardt Schreoder will be renamed "Freedom Schreoder"

  *         "Germs" will be renamed "freedoms"

  *         Germanic languages will be renamed "freedom languages"

  *         German sausage will be renamed "freedom sausage"

  *         German measles will be renamed "freedom measles"

  

  And finally, France and Germany will be renamed "The United States."

  

  David
