I'm sorry, but this is just hilarious.  During dinner, my parents told me that in the cafeterias at Congress, "French Fries" (which aren't even French, but Belgian!) are now being called "Freedom Fries" to display our respective government's differing views on the war.  

Supersize?
Greasy, fatty?

Would you like a soda too?

NOw, Freedom Toast...:D

I'd feel funny about Freedom Kissing.  I mean, I just don't associate tongue action with the American Flag.

This is just a fad that will pass just like the renaming of distinctly German foods like saukraut and certain types of sausages that happened in the US in the years leading up to its entry into the First World War. Within a few years the old names were back and it amounted to nothing.

You know, English is itself essentially a hybrid language, the offspring of Anglo-Saxon and Norman French. If we're that keen to purge the French influence from our language, are we going to return to Old English? ;)
