I wonder how such stupidity even makes the news. I guess they are trying to be original or something.

Ok so they want to use a French word for electronic mail is bad?
But the US being dopes by changing the name "French Fries" to "Freedom fries" was ok?

Do you realize we looked like bigger a-holes.

The American Government did not OFFICIALLY ban the term "french fries".....big difference.

If you think passing a law is just as bad as changing a menu, then you may be right.

I don't see it that way though.

I remember when their government changed the word "France" into "Germany" about 60 years ago. :rolleyes:

Sorry, but the French are generally azzholes in regards to relations with Americans.
