    Take that, Frenchies!

    Every country in the world should be afraid. If you don't support
    us, we won't name our food after you.

    I can so imagine how angry the French people must be at us right
    now. Changing the name of greasy potatos that were previously
    deep-fried in beef-grease is sure to have hurt their feelings.

    I hope Canada supports us. If not, they better watch out. Pretty
    soon we'll be eating "Freedom Bacon."

    lmao that's the dumbest thing ever. I heard that last night. What soldier is going to feel more spirited eating freedom fries rather than french fries? Then again it's prob giving them a good laugh over there.

    And the Polish better watch out to because before you know it, it will be 'freedom sausage' and if the bamboo plants start giving us crap we might start calling it 'freedom shoots'...wooooweee we're going to get all of them good!

    No no no, that obsessity is intentional. It's for extra protection against the terrorists attacks. Everday I make sure I eat not one but two breakfeasts so that I'm even more protected against the attacks that may take place on me while I'm at school. Because you never know...

    i hate to be the one to tell you this but fat is not bullet proof, even kevlar has its weaknesses, body fat will not save you, although, it might make you bounce a little bit higher than a thin man

    You should do yourselves all a favour and start calling them chips like the rest of us. And those thin sliced potato snacks are called crisps!

    Here in America we exercise the right to call things as they are named. Fries are fries, chips are chips. Beautiful isn't it?

    What exactly are corn dogs? Do they have corn in them? How about Big Macs? Do they have any meat in them?

    No, they have corn around them. They're hot dogs wrapped in cornbread, bascially. I cna't say whether or not they contain dog, though.

    > How about Big Macs? Do they have any meat in them?

    There're some questions you just can't answer.

    Hmmm well then I'm going to keep on trying to get fat, so as long as I can at least bounce really high, since you say it won't help me against the badies.

    Big Mac = 95% soy 5% "beef" I believe

    It looks like frenchfry164 is rebelling against the US Government by not changing his name to freedomfry164! Not that anyone cares...

    I think this is kind of childish of the US to do this. Come on now, renaming french fries to freedom fries? What's next, renaming Champagne because it is French too? Surely they could have thought of something better than that! Oh... Wait a minute... I'm talking about the USA.
