Freedom Fries Refrogified On House of Representatives Menu

House of Representative Republicans will just have to choke down the greasy taste of semantic defeat: the ludicrous ‘Freedom Fries’ debacle is over.

You might remember some particularly zealous idiots doing hysteria-induced jumping jacks in 2003, when France protested the War in Iraq. Those zealous idiots were, of course, our elected officials. Revenge was served up by renaming that most unfroglike of foods from french fry to ‘Freedom Fry’ on the House of Representatives cafeteria menu.

That’s all over. With the timeliness and astute observation typical of our representatives, they have realized what doofuses they resemble three years after the rest of the world did. The cafeteria menu has quietly been changed back to serving french fries.

The real problem with the ‘Freedom Fry’ initiative was that it was never carried to its logical and absurd conclusion. Freedom Toast. Freedom Kiss. Freedom Tickler!

    I might be wrong about this, but I think they actually did change the name of french toast to Liberty Toast or something equally ridiculous.

    At any rate, a dark chapter in our country’s history has now passed. If they’d only get rid of this pesky war thing while they’re making progress.

  2. Jess A. says:

    Yes, french toast was indeed renamed Freedom Toast.

  3. Paul D says:

    Wasn’t it soon revealed that the “french fry” is actually a Belgian culinary item?

    Jingoists are stupid.

    Of course, they could always just call them “fries”.

    Don’t forget “Freedom Braid”.
