Let Freedom Ring

25 Aug

You know what I always found to be incredibly lame?  Freedom Fries.  So stupid!!  I can’t believe that, as a country, we got so bent out of shape when the French refused to help us in our “war against terror” that we had to change the name of our stupid freaking fries. 

Really?  I mean, really?  That’s all we could come up with?  For the freaking love.  I can’t believe that we couldn’t come up with anything better than that.  We’re talking about a group of people that wear boat shirts and berets, and all we could do is come up with Freedom Fries?

Why not have freedom dressing and freedom bread?  And freedom lace panties?  Or freedom kissing?  Frankly, if someone ever tried to lay a freedom kiss on me, I’d probably have to laugh in his face before I wished them adieu and walked away.

Personally, I don’t have a problem with the French.  They make some pretty good cheese, and some spectacular wine.  Plus they gave us Olivier Martinez.  As a matter of fact, I could make a meal out of just the cheese and the wine-and Olivier Martinez.  Sure, not exactly the healthiest meal in the world, but it’s pretty darn tasty. Plus if you add champagne to anything, it totally classes it up.

    No mention of the Freedom tickler? You are losing your touch Ms. Singleton.

    Damn it! I knew I was forgetting the most important thing. Clearly I hit my head on that diving board railing harder than I thought. Damn it! -CS

    Yeah, if’s a good thing I never actually set you up with what’s-his-name.

    Was he into that stuff? Oh god, thank the lord I was spared. -CS

    The French do have some great food and wine but I still like to smack them in the face with a baguette I always keep handy.

    It’s important to always have a baguette on hand. -CS

    Wow, this is really topical for like, 2003.

    It’s also not anything new. When we fought the Krauts in WWI, we changed “frankfurter” to “hot dog” and “sauerkraut” to the incredibly ridiculous “liberty cabbage.” America’s been dumb for a lot longer than we give ourselves credit for.

    Liberty cabbage? For the love. -CS

    uhm, talking about the french in open forums makes me uncomfortable.

    Are you afraid they might wrinkle their noses at you? -CS

    We must respect the French…they invented the Menage a Trois….something like that holds favor for a few centuries. It’s just not as sexy to drunkenly slur, “Three way?”

    Menage a trois does sound far more sophisticated than a 3 way. It’s so international when you say it like the Frogs do. -CS

    You shouldn’t feel too bad about it. You oughtta hear what they say about Americans. In any given country, actually.

    I know. When I travel I pretend to be Canadian. -CS
