No. Your linguistics prof is absolutely full of shit. Or well, we don’t say that north of the Mason-Dixon line. I can’t speak for the South.

Good, because freedom fries sounds ridiculous! I mean funny, yes, but the explanation was dumb. Something about Americans having some problem or other with the French and thus changing the name from French fries… What?

So, there was a call for them to be called ‘freedom fries’ (also freedom toast and freedom dressing) after the French refused to back the US in our invasion of Iraq. But, as we all know, Dubya (that is, Fmr. President George W. Bush) was borderline batshit, so it never really caught on. At least not in any of the states that I have lived in post-9/11 (which is to say, California, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Colorado, and New Hampshire).

Can we talk about how Cap and Bucky have opposite masks?
Cap has mouth and eyes exposed, forehead covered. Bucky has mouth covered and eyes painted black, his forehead exposed.
What a lovely symmetry.

But the symbolism too. Cap’s is a helmet, protection, to keep him safe from physical harm. Bucky’s is a muzzle to keep him silent and anonymous and on a leash.

the reality of fixing my research proposal because dessa is going to read it and i wrote it in forty-five minutes at the bar last night while watching two hockey games and having half the staff/regulars come up and ask me what i was doing.

i gave zero fucks about my actual grade, but it has to be better if dessa is gonna see it.
