Freedom fries again?
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to eating French fries—now that Bush says that Chirac is a buddy again—comes this, under the “winning hearts and minds” category.
In a telephone poll of 500 [Canadian] teens aged 14 to 18, more than 40 per cent of respondents saw the U.S. as an evil global force. Among French-Canadians, that number jumped to 64 per cent.That’s almost two out of three French-speaking teenyboppers. As Dick Cheney would say, Allez vous faire foutre! So I’m ordering freedom fries from now on. But wait—aren’t those Canadian potatoes in that fryer?
