Freedom Fries

Clearly, one of the oddest things to arise out of the entire Iraq crisis is “news” that a restaurant in North Carolina is no longer selling French Fries, and is instead selling Freedom Fries.

[The owner] said the switch from french fries to freedom fries came to mind after a conversation about World War I when anti-German sentiment prompted Americans to rename German foods like sauerkraut and hamburger to liberty cabbage and liberty steak.

Yeah, and we all know how long those terms lasted.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some liberty cabbage on the stove….
