I hate French's mustard. I think it gives my country (.fr, freedom land, frogland) a bad name. This has been my opinion ever since my first encounter with the thing in 1957. Same with French dressing. I prefer oil and vinegar and pepper and salt in four different countainers and mix them myself. Even if you tell me Georges W. hates French's mustard, I will not yield.
More serious matter I live in Normandy. I can assure you that I have not heard, read or seen any damages done to an American cemetery this year. I cannot speak for the last sixty years.. If it had happened, it would certainly upset a lots of people here and it would be in local news. American cemeteries are big (only eleven) and run by American staff. I would say they are difficult to break in at night. They have too many visitors in the daytime to let silly things being done. British, Polish, Canadian, Dutch, Anzac, Portugueses are hundreds, small and often close to villages and to civilian graveyards. French and German graves are another subject. French too often defaced by people who hate the army (they think soldiers love war...) . I have not heard of complains about German places, maybe they are hushed up ? I think they are difficult to get in and very impressive, not showy.
I know what happened in Etaples (Picardy) in a WW1 British cemetery. I think it was done by stupid illiterate drunken people. It has been cleaned and apologies have been made.
Those people usually spend their Saturday night burning stolen cars but that does not get in International news.
You may have noticed they can't tell American from British ! and they can't draw a swastika either .
More about American boycott in France. Very strange figures. Tell you tomorrow.
Oh, let me tell you, I am not yellow, I am green. When the Martians land , they will be on our side, because they are green like us frogs and racists like the yanks who think we are yellow and chicken and worms and weasels. Aren't they a bit confused ? ever tated acadiab weasel soup ? I haven't.

Well, Tobias. First off, yes I have been out of the US many times. And to also say, looks like time was on my side. I hate to change the subject here from French's mustard, but to respond American's boycotting French products has cost the French over $1 Billion (yep, with a B) dollars. And to say again, America didn't start this, but we will finish it. France wants to say that America did this as "Blood for Oil", but evidence now shows that it was the French that had reasons more along that lines. Why would France, who so opposes war, having nothing to do with Iraq (and they insist that it wasn't for money or oil), suddenly commit their troops to fighting in the Congo? They are the ONLY one that did this, no one else in the UN has done this. I thought that they were against war. And to say that America has done nothing for France is rediculous, just check your history books.

Perhaps French's Mustard should change their name to
"Ole Chap Yellow Mustard"? It would certainly decrease the confusion as to whether or not it is French. Just a thought.
Actually, just to see or hear anything that partains to France, repulses me. It's a little different with Germany, at least they are doing something to help our boys.

There is no relationship, nor has there ever been a relationship, between French's mustard and the country of
France. Indeed, their mustard in manufactured in Rochester, NY. The only thing French's have in common with France is that they are both yellow".

'Image what France would be like if we turned our back on them' - Take a hike...
France is and has been a very independent civilized country long before the first american settler has been living in a hut in the woods.
Have you ever been to France? Europe? Outside the U.S.?
Do you really think that a boycott of French products by the american people would even be noticed by the french.
I'm german and have been to france a lot of times. If you ask me the french people don't give a rats ass about your freedom fries idiocy. In fact they'll be strengthened in their already very strong national support.
I guess that you do not know that the french - decades before the 'freedom fries' hype - initiated laws that prohibit the use of foreign (especially english) product names for french products. The radio station are enforced to play a certain quota of french artists for each foreign artist (about 5 french songs per foreign song).

If you're attcking illegal weapon sales to Iraq you should perhaps check your own history more closely - like the Taliban fighters also Saddams troops have been equipped and trained by the U.S. before the american interests turned against Iraq.

One last question - what french products you're talking about exactly? French fries are not a french product at all. All you're doing is to damage your own economy.

You know, what amazes me is what is happening here, that is what is really sad. Protesting the war is one thing and I do believe that it is OK for the French to do (even though I disagree with them protesting it, freedom of speech is something that I do support and believe in), but to see what the French have done is something totally different. That is why Americans are angry with France and the French people, not because of their lack of support in removing a dictator, but for the actions that the French people have carried out themselves. For starters, just the sight of what the French did to the graves of Americans in Normandy that died helping their country is nauseating. Friends, huh? I could go on and on with other examples, but it would use up all of the space on this web site. To summarize, the things that the French PEOPLE (not just the French government) have done has taken it to far, and all because they were scared and now they are embarrassed that they got caught having illegally sold items to Iraq and avoiding the UN resolutions that they are trying to tout so much about. Image what France would be like if we turned our back on them like they turned their back on the Iraqi people. America does not turn it's back on fellow humans when they are in need of assistance (just like the many times that we have helped France and others). That is what is sickening to the American public. Our family and many others like ours strongly support the boycott of French products. If France TRUELY wants to be part of the reconstruction of Iraq to HELP the Iraqi people and they are not doing it for the financial gain as they have stated, I purpose the following. France can be given the exact amount of reconstruction contracts that is equal to the amount donated by them to the Iraqi people.

P.S. - FREEDOM FRIES ALL THE WAY - Sorry Reverend, but it is not a stupid idea. What I call stupid are the steps that the French have taken and the miscalculations that the French people have made (for the whole world to see).

What amazes me is that anybody puts any credence into this crap at all. You ask if five years ago anyone could have imagined this idiocy while ignoring the fact that five years from now most won't remember it either. The issue isn't that this sort of stupidity exists, as it does in EVERY society, it's that our media portrays these tiny, isolated incidents as if they are indicative of society as a whole. Sorry, I'd bet that the vast majority of Americans feel that "Freedom Fries" is a profoundly stupid idea yet, due to our over-zealous media, it somehow has become the definition of the "American Way". Sad.

Chalk another point up for the terrorists. The West's headlong descent into lunacy and madness is all they could wish for and more.

Who could have imagined all this idiocy going on just five years ago? People changing the name of foods purely because France wouldn't back war the way the US government wanted?

Take a long look at how the world is turning from a really nice place to live into a place full of fear, ignorance and madness and see how truly free you are.

Our grandparents suffered and died all over the world because of this kind of bullshit and we're heading right back into it.

Right up to the neck.

I should say >some< Americans' notion of freedom.

The irony is how thin the American notion of freedom reveals itself to be. They may find themselves in a cul-de-sac.

Here's another collection of words you might probably get rid of as they are origin in german words:


and even better:

hey boys you're in for a severe loss in vocabulary ...
