Re: Why doesn\'t this surprise me?

"French" comes from the term "Frenching" which is NOT playing tonsil hockey, but rather:

[ QUOTE ]
Frenching is a culinary term used to describe cutting foods into narrow strips or rounds. In this sense, frenching is not associated with the country of France[/b], and therefore, need not be capitalized when written. The term french-fried potatoes dates only to 1894; the term french fries probably dates to the 1920

Therefore... really... there's no connection. :tongue:

Re: Why doesn\'t this surprise me?

Gee Kricket, I didn't know you cared.......I feel bad I didn't get you anything here have this instead :bird: :tongue: :lol: Doesn't mean I don't love you though :wink:

But Novos, I was only being facetious.......You know:

Main Entry: fa·ce·tious
Pronunciation: f&-'sE-sh&s
Function: adjective
Etymology: Middle French facetieux, from facetie jest, from Latin facetia
1 : joking or jesting often inappropriately : WAGGISH <just being facetious>
2 : meant to be humorous or funny : not serious <a facetious remark>
synonym see WITTY
- fa·ce·tious·ly adverb
- fa·ce·tious·ness noun

In other words, what business does he have in dealing with our foreign relations to begin with, I meant he should just be known as Mr.Heinz :rolling: :808993-banghead: :lol:

To inject my usual bring-down-the-mood pontification:

Doesn't anyone realize that without French help we'd still be a British colony? I know we joke about the cheese-eatin' surrender monkeys a lot but sheesh...they *did* give up Maurice Chevalier!
