THE KETCHUP WAS THE ONLY EDIBLE THING ON THEIR PLATES:

France bans ketchup in cafeterias (Kim Willsher, 8/06/11, Los Angeles Times)

First France built a wall around its language to protect it from pernicious Anglo-Saxon invaders. Now it is throwing up a shield against another perceived threat to its culture and civilization: ketchup.

In an effort to promote healthful eating and, it has been suggested, to protect traditional Gallic cuisine, the French government has banned school and college cafeterias nationwide from offering the American tomato-based condiment with any food but -- of all things -- French fries.


Globalization is Anglofication.
