In February, a fast food restaurant called Cubbie's in Beaufort, North Carolina renamed its French fries "freedom fries" also in protest at France's anti-war stance.

The owner, Neal Rowland, said he got the idea from similar protest action against Germany during World War I, when sauerkraut was renamed liberty cabbage and frankfurters became hot dogs.

so if hotdogs caught on...

1. A phrase made up by George W. Bush and his cronies to eradicate any mention of the nation of France from the US.
2. Part of the radical attempt to segregate the French from the world.
3. An idiotic expression
If Congress is stupid enough to turn French Fries into Freedom Fries, it is stupid enough to make these transformations:

Turkey -> Independence Bird
Peking Duck -> Democracy Duck
Guinea Pig -> Freedom Pig
Hamburgers -> Liberty Meat
World -> America
Inspections -> War
Statesmanship -> War
Diplomacy -> War
Peace -> War

Pretty much all of you are wrong. George W. Bush did NOT come up with this term, and neither did McDonald's. It was created by Rep.Bob Ney, R-Ohio, in a fat-headed Republican attempt to discredit the French. Without them, however, we would not have the Statue of Liberty, and America would be a BRITISH PROVINCE.
Anyone who is complacent about the creation of this ridiculous phrase is a mental midget.

Idiots call FRENCH fries this. Although replacing the French part with freedom makes absolutely no sense and makes us all look like a bunch of moron second-graders. Thanks Dubya!
We call them freedom fries now because the French refuse to participate in our unjust war. Well, guess what? I WANT MY FRENCH FRIES! Screw America, France rocks.

The worst idea for making the people of the U.S. look patriotic ever.
Why would George W. Bushwah get the idea that French fries were actually named after the French anyway, which is beside the fact that there are many people in the U.S. that have French heritage.

Part of a pathetic attempt to reduce France's status because it doesn't support an unjust and imperialistic war. Those who invented this term seem to have forgotten that France gave us the Statue of Liberty and a huge chunk of territory known as the Louisiana Purchase. Not to mention that America would still be a British colony if it weren't for the French. Come to think of it, the world would be better off if there wasn't any United States.
french fries -> freedom fries
french toast-> freedom toast
french kiss -> freedom kiss
peking duck -> democracy duck
guinea worm -> liberty worm
turkey -> independence bird
world -> America
inspections -> war
statesmanship -> war
diplomacy -> war
peace -> war

The final evidence that the USA is a fucked up country full of fucked up, mindless patriots.
I thought this was a joke.. Unfortunately, it turns out that it's not.
