No, really.

My wife was listening to NPR (yea, I know. but it pays to know thy enemy) and they pointed out that the french are fine with us not using their monniker for our fries; one becuase they are of Belgian origin not french, and most importantly because they are considered lowly american greasy junk food.

So I say if we want to get a jibe in we should ADD the word 'french' to as many disagreeable things a possible!

How about:
1. french mountain oysters
2. french haggis (sorry Scotland!)
3. french beets (I hate beets)

anyone else?

p.s. leave it off of the fires, since I do enjoy occasional greasy,salty fries\
