Good News on Capitol Hill!

[quote]The fries on Capitol Hill are French again.
So is the breakfast toast in the congressional cafeterias, with both fries and toast having been liberated from the appellation “freedom.”
Three years after House Republicans trumpeted the new names to get back at the French for snubbing the coalition of the willing in Iraq, congressmen don’t even want to talk about french fries, which are actually native to Belgium, and toast.
Neither Reps. Bob Ney of Ohio nor Walter B. Jones of North Carolina, the authors of the culinary rebuke, were willing this week to say who led the retreat, as it were, from the frying pan. But retreat there has been, as a casual observer can see for himself in the House’s basement cafeterias. [/quote]

At least they’re not calling them…“chips.”

Ask the Belgians if they think these were ever “French”…

Now, now. Don’t be churlish… :smiling_imp:

well, the real name for them is actually “chups”

There will be jubilation on the streets of Paris this evening.

:bravo: :bravo: :laughing: :laughing:

Any relation to the fact that Messrs Bush & Co. are seeking a rather large contingent of cheese-eating surrender monkeys to interpose their derrieres in between Israel and Hizbullah?

Only tempered by the banning of topless sunbathing and thongs on the Paris plage.

BTW, do you think the fact that Chirac volunteered to serve in the Algerian Civil War and was wounded there had anything to do with his attitude on Iraq?
