Would You Like Fries With That?

March 13, 2003

I read how two American patriots have defended us against French fry Armageddon by renaming the evil spuds "freedom fries" (March 12). Now I can sleep, and eat, without trembling, knowing that our leaders in Congress, Reps. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) and Bob Ney (R-Ohio), have liberated us from the horrid tyranny of the French fry!

The geniuses in Congress are at it again, dropping "French" from the menu. I'm guessing they celebrated with a glass of Champagne, picked up a croissant at the buffet for breakfast, had soup du jour and a quiche for lunch and filet mignon as an entree for dinner at the local cafe. I'd like our "leaders" to get back to some real work, but I'm not sure they're smart enough.

Why not have a poll? I would consider "MOAB" fries or "war" toast. Do Ney and Jones want to change the name of the French Quarter in New Orleans to something like "General Quarters"?
