Potato processors are rushing to buy supplies and ship them across North America in order to keep French fries on the menu after cold, wet weather damaged crops in key producers in the U.S. and Canada.

Should I go with "Hillary" or "Trump"? And honestly, does it really matter?

Your vote counts.

Americans eating fewer French Fries? OMG! What a crisis. Probably the best thing that could happen to 60% of our population.

I thought this thread was going to be about Trump's Revenge.

A ban on French Fries, French wine, French doors, French drains, Croissants, Pate', etc., etc., etc.

A ban on French Fries

Lol... Thought, oh what a funny joke, then realized that maybe it is not a joke.

Remember conservatives renaming "french fries" to "freedom fries" after 9/11 because France pissed them off. They are nothing if not petty.

The food nazis will go after that after they've banned hamburgers in order to save the planet.

Try Veggibegers. They're not too bad. McDonalds has put them on the menu.

The irony is that the "French" in French Fries is referring to how they are cooked. They actually originated in Belgium where there are shops dedicated to selling only 'Pommes Fries', what both the French and Belgians call 'French Fries'.

They already ruined my world by trying to convince me avocados were going to stop coming in. I'm not believing this fry issue.

Remember when republicans lost their minds when the french proved they were smarter than us by not following us into iraq, so repubs refused to say FRENCH fries?

Republicans are so stupid today, we often forget that it's nothing new.

Shortage of fries means less fry cooks, putting fast food workers out of a job. Good job Trump you can't even help your favorite industry you nugget eater.

That's good enough to fool an idiot like Trump.

Now put a sign in your yard that says "This is a French Free zone." That'll keep Trump's brownshirts away.

No problem here as we have a deep fryer and peanut oil. Of course we only have Fries [cut in varying thicknesses so that some are crispy and others meaty] once and a while - when we make Philly cheesesteaks. 'Secret' to great cheesesteaks is use sirloin, cut into strips of varying thickness. Then marinate in red wine [never buy what is known as' cooking wine' as if it is not drinkable why put it in you food]. Also use a mixture of both mozzarella and provolone and place on a toasted Po Boy roll. Just add side of fries salted and doused with Malt ------- and have and a couple of Bass Pale Ales with it - heavenly!
