French fries renamed in House restaurants
The French Embassy in Washington had no immediate comment, except to say that french fries actually come from Belgium.

Yes, Aaron, you're right. Perhaps you remember that back in the First World War, when all things German were suspect, that sauerkraut was re-named Liberty Cabbage and dachshunds were re-named Liberty Pups.
As Erika said, when this started in some hick Southern town it was just banal. Now it's in the nation's capitol, and that is just sad.
She also wondered if the Brits do back off their slavish support of George W, will we ban English muffins?
This is all ridiculous. Vive la France!

Yeah, I saw that. How silly.

According to a friend who grew up there, in Belgium they call steak tartar "beefsteak americain."

Sorry to bother you again, Aaron, but this is a subject that has really annoyed me.
Wpnder if you saw the joke in Sunday's St. Paul paper that is currently making the rounds in la belle Frnace. Supposedly George Bush dies. St. Peter meets him at the Pearly Gates and tells him, "Wait a minute. You can't just walk into Heaven. First you must prove you are who you say you are. Even Picasso and Einstein had to do that."
Our unelected Prez asks "Who are Picasso and Einstein?"
St Peter says, "OK. Go on in."
