Oh Jesus Christ.

There are already too many Ohio jokes...now we've got another to add....

French fries get new name in House

WASHINGTON (AP) — Show the flag and pass the ketchup was the order of the day in House cafeterias Tuesday. Lawmakers struck a lunchtime blow against the French and put "freedom fries" on the menu.

And for breakfast they'll now have "freedom toast."

The name changes follow similar actions by restaurants around the country protesting French opposition to the administration's Iraq war plans.

"Update. Now Serving in All House Office Buildings, 'Freedom Fries,'" read a sign that Republican Reps. Bob Ney of Ohio and Walter Jones of North Carolina placed at the register in the Longworth Office Building food court.

Jones said he was inspired by Cubbie's restaurant in Beaufort, N.C., in his district, one of the first to put "freedom fries" on the menu instead of french fries.

"This action today is a small but symbolic effort to show the strong displeasure of many on Capitol Hill with the actions of our so-called ally, France," said Ney, chairman of the House Administration Committee.

Ney, whose panel oversees House operations, ordered the menu changes.

here's the whole sad, sad story:http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2003-03-11-freedom-fries_x.htm

This even made The Daily Show.
Jon Stewart's added comment was, "The House's bathroom will now begin selling 'Freedom Ticklers.'"

In a restaraunt somewhere, they're selling Liberty Dressing.
