Freedom Fries? Oh please…

This is getting _completely_ rididculous. In a Yahoo! News story, we read:

bq. House cafeterias will be serving fries with a side order of patriotism Tuesday with a decision by GOP lawmakers to replace the “French” cuisine with “freedom fries.”

bq. The House action follows moves by several restaurants around the country to remove “French” fries from their menus to protest French opposition to U.S. military action in Iraq.

Don’t they have more important things to do? This is kindergarten diplomacy, fer crissakes!!

They’re called “french” fries because the process of cutting things into long skinny strips like that is called “frenching”. It’s apparently called that because the English couldn’t handle the word “julienne”…
