No Belgian waffles for me. I had Freedom Waffles for breakfast yesterday.

I made waffles out of cake batter on Saturday. Quite delicious

I think I'll just boycott severing peoples hands instead.

I'll give up Belgian Waffles but if you try to take away my Belgian Beers, I WILL cut you.

This was a thing that actually happened.  People were very serious about this and weren't ashamed to support it.

Those were frightening times.
I damn-near gathered the family to flee over the mountains (a la the von Trapps) when you uppity buggers started goose-stepping around the town square.

I felt like "am I taking crazy pills"?  What the hells is wrong with everybody?  Why does everyone think this is a good idea?  This is clearly not a good idea.

That was my Congressman at the time, Walter "Freedom Fries" Jones.  In his (minimal) defense, he was also one of the first Republican Congresscritters to speak against continuing the War in Iraq in 2006.  It was a crass political move intended to insulate himself from the purge of Republicans that year, and he's since moved back towards the Tea Party caucus (all of which has been a careful calculation of what sells to the Eastern NC knuckle-breathers).

Sadly, I'm now represented by this guy:

For every Belgian waffle you boycott, I'm eating 3, plus Belgian fries, plus all the Belgian beer I can drink.

**burp**

/stop saying Belgium. This is a family site.

I'm just shocked they didn't call them "Belgium waffles", like most Americans.
 
2014-06-30 02:28:07 PM  
Now I'm craving waffles.
 
2014-06-30 02:31:14 PM  
Recently some packaged belgian waffles have shown up in my local grocery store.

They are quite delicious.

So no boycott.

In defense of America, France is a dick.

We wouldn't have gone through as much effort had they been called English/German/Italian/Greek/etc if those nations had done the same thing. That was just the cherry-on-top motivation.

The boycott of 'Belgian waffles' is more in fun than anything else.

Look, I think "Waffle House" is pretty farking disgusting too, but that's no reason to prevent people from saying it.

The only reason is that they didn't support the Iraq war.

In other words, they were the smart ones.

You make me want to staple bagels to my face
Then remove them with a pitchfork
You make me want to build a model of the Eiffel Tower
Out of Belgian Waffles
You make me
You make me
You make me
That's what you do to me

At the time of all the "freedom fry" and "boycott French wine" stuff, I was working for a company as their network manager. The head of the IT department from our German office, who was originally from France, was visiting us. We went out for a departmental dinner at a Boston steak house called "Abe and Louie's."  Before ordering, we had our French visitor look over the wine list to make a selection for the table. He selected a French wine, and was told by the waiter, "I'm sorry, sir, but the management has decided not to sell any French wine for the time being due to the current political issues."  We were all kind-of stunned, not to mention a little embarrassed. Our French co-worker took it in stride and simply made another selection.

At the end of the meal, the waiter asked if we'd care for any after dinner cordials. Our co-worker ordered us a round of cognac. When they came to the table and were served, he commented to the waiter, "You do know that all cognacs are from France, no? I find it amusing you still serve them yet penalize the wine."  The waiter sighed heavily threw up his hands and said, "Look, I don't make the decisions, okay?!"

I still laugh about it to this day. Is there anything more American than angrily protesting something, but only in a manner that doesn't interfere with your bottom line?

Sounds like subby only wants to eat Freedom Waffles or maybe Blue Waffles?

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT LOOK THAT UP. SERIOUSLY, THIS IS NOT A JOKE AND VERY NSFW AND LUNCH

Just figured I'd save someone for making that joke later in the thread and someone else for making a terrible, terrible GIS mistake. We've all been there and after LOLCENA, I wanted to help.

/doing my duty

During the " Freedom Fries" upheaval, a restaurant owner in my town decided to show his patriotism by pouring all his Dom Peringnon down the sewer grate. Was in the local paper. He's out of business now, and the building has been torn down. A word to the wise...and yo mutha.

GO Team USA and lets have a good clean game with a minimum of flopping.

No thanks, I will hang on to my typical American disinterest, bordering on disdain, for European Grass Diving. This "sport" is depriving the NFL of some potentially quality wide receivers and corner backs.

Wait - Waffle House serves what I think of as 'normal' waffles, not those awful Belgian mutant things with the grid wide and deep enough to rival the potholes on Interstate 80?

SIGN ME UP!

I have been completely pissed at the way 'Belgian' waffles have completely displaced (or so I thought) the standard variety I grew up with.

The Belgian ones *taste* the same, but there's no way, really, to spread butter on them...
