Seems like the public doesn't forget as fast as we thought. I think it's ridiculous, but then again, Americans will do as they please...

No No, I think a rep from the UN needs to come to each American grocery and make sure each American is buying all the French products we can. Maybe we can be subject to home inspections by the UN to assure we are buying the way we're supposed to. I just hope Hans Blix heads it up.

But aren't all Americans rich? That's what the world thinks right? *drinks his Evian water, and then wonders if there's anything behind the fact that it spells "naive" backwards...*

Wait a second!

A "UN" food inspections regime in America? I'd like to see the day. If I go down to my local grocery store and see Hans Blix cruizing the junk food isle, I'm going to go insane! (as if I'm not already there *chuckles to himself*)

The French and Germans have given the US 72 hours to start selling their food.Or war,its our choice.

I, err... I think I know the decision. IT HAS TO BE WAR! Nobody forces the US to eat French fries, toast, ect...(eventhough they are not French)

The French and Germans will pay! *rubs his hands together evily*

I think I would be okay with mandatory wine and beer quotas. It would be a good excuse to use on the misses.."Its not my idea honey, its the law!! I'll be at Moe's with Hans Blix abiding by the new UN resolution."

It's a good thing that most people (where I live) find French food discusting, or we might really have a problem.


"The UN has imposed sanctions against America until the agree to sell only French and German food."(say goodbye to deep-fried cheese curds)
