    and there was one more thing that i forgot to mention, (sorry if it already came out,most probably it did) one resturent in a turist area in the US refused to serve to French people because France was against them. I believe he was charged for that...

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Link, please. The only restaurant I heard about doing that was in Europe. Provide some evidence or quit posting.

    The French are having the last laugh though, considering that french fries are actually from Belgium...

    I cna't say whether or not they contain dog, though.
    Nope, just roadkill and anything found on the floor. My mother use to work at a pork plant that made them.

    Lovely.

    Oh well, I don't really care what goes into them - they taste good and I haven't died yet. When I found out pepperoni was grated pig testicle, that didn't change the taste.

    About the make-up of pepperoni? Nope. That's what my biology teacher told us.

    The French are having a ball with this. A report about French fries being renamed "freedom fries" in the House cafeteria made it to France 2's Le Journal de Vingts Heures. The French people must see this as laughably ignorant.

    I boycott any restaurant that cowers to "patriotic" ignorance and bigotry. That shouldn't be a problem because I wouldn't be eating at McDonald's (the name change is forthcoming from what I heard) and other places like that anyway. Hardee's is also boycott worthy for their commercial mocking the French people, but it seems they pulled this commercial fairly quickly.

    You woudn't eat at McDonald's? Even though they brought back
    the McRib? You're nuts, man. Don't let politics keep you from
    enjoying the greatest rib-based fastfood sandwich ever created.
