First it was Freedom Fries and Freedom Toast, the next step would logically be to change the name of French's Mustard into Freedom's Mustard, but the company has assured us that this condiment is not at all related to the stinky, disgusting, surrendering French. While we watch our troops take a beating by the wily Iraqis and watch our country turn slowly into a new, more repressive regime, the good folks at Reckitt Benckiser PLC have decided that we should at least keep this clear. It's comforting to know that while the world hates us with a passion, we can continue to hate the French vehemently like always. The whole "if it weren't for us, you'd all be speaking German" argument has obviously fallen upon deaf ears. Remember when everybody said that after 9/11 the world had changed completely? Well, this is about as changed as it gets. I feel like we are living in some comic strip read by the gods. The fact that this is even newsworthy kills me.
