The American word for "Pommes Frites" - a Belgian side-dish consisting of deep-fried, finger-length pieces of potatoes, served hot and salted. Traditionally served to anything from Moule Marienere (clams) to Hamburgers.
Also known as chips in Britain and Australia, Pommes Strips, Belgian Fries, and more recently, Freedom Fries.

In the term french fries (notice it's not capitalized), "french" refers to the way they're cut, NOT the country of origin (which happens to be Belgium).
So, we can see how extremely dumb it was to rename "french fries" "freedom fries," especially due to the fact that "french" does not refer to the country.

Street slang for the perscription mood-elevator, Xanax (Alprazolam). Alprazolam is indicated for the management of anxiety disorder. While the drug is available in .25, .5, 1 and 2 mg doses, it's the 2 mg doses that earned this controlled substance the street name, "French Fries."
The 2 mg tablets are white with three slices (3 scores) in the side, and the number "2" on one side and "Xanax" on the other side. These score-marks give the tablets a resemblance to crinkle-cut french fries, and allow the tablets to be broken into 4 equal parts of 0.5 mg.

More conclusive proof that George W Bush is a tit (see entry for Freedom fries); 'French' fries, like many things called French something-or-ther, were not even invented in France, and there is little evidence to suggest they were invented in Belgium, either.

In France they are generally eaten with steak (steak-frites), and were popularised by the Americans, who now, ironically, find the term 'French anything' sticking in ther craw... all because we aren't trigger-happy, Anti-Islamists.
