Funny spoof on how English would sound if we remove the French words from it. You know, some American politicians thought that if they just changed the name of "french fries" to "freedom fries" they would have gotten back at those damned Frenchies who have a mind of their own. But the French don't really call them "french fries" in the first place, and about 40% of English words come from French, so this is how they might go the full length.

Freedom French has a nice tone to it.
