All Things French

Why stop with freedom fries?

We can start calling croissants victory bread, and berets can be...well, we can just get rid of them altogether.

While we're at it, let's get rid of potato chips and the Statue of Liberty, two things France actually did give us!


  1. Now that I think about it... "French" is an adjective and "freedom" is a noun. I don't think you can use a noun to describe another object. Well, maybe... like the words "sky blue". Then again, blue isn't an object either. If you say something like "coffee pot", is "coffee" describing the type of pot or is the word pair considered one distinct item?

  2. Can we start calling sauerkraut Victory Cabbage again?

  3. just like we did back in 19-dickity-2?(we had to say dickity, cos the kaiser stole our word for twenty!)
