I remember the pique over the French government’s resistance to the U.S. invasion of Iraq led a member of Congress to propose renaming French Fries – Freedom Fries.
Back in World War One “sauerkraut was renamed Victory Cabbage.”
The guy for tweaking the French (like they cared?) musta knowed his histry.
