French bashing by Subway

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

From Yahoo

Two years after relations between the US and France soured over the Iraq war, French-bashing in America appears alive and well in light of a recent ad campaign by a fast-food chain linking France and cowardice.

The ad by the Subway chain touted a cordon bleu chicken sandwich with the words “France and chicken, somehow it just goes together“. A photo of a chicken dressed like Napoleon accompanied the advertisement.

Subway ran the ads in about 10 US states for nearly a month and pulled them in September following an outcry by members of the French expatriate community and other customers offended by the racist undertone.

Must go, got to get me a Subway.

Oh and BTW I found this little gem as well. With all thats going on in the world isn’t it time we got back to hating France.
