January 12, 1943

On This Date in TWISTED-HISTORY.com! in 1943, the Office of Price Administration announced that standard frankfurters/hot dogs/wieners would be replaced by ‘Victory Sausages.’ Sixty years later, the silliness continued in our nation’s capitol as on March 11, 2003, US Representatives Bob Ney and Walter Jones had the Congressional cafeterias change their menus from French fries and French toast to Freedom fries and Freedom toast. The menus quickly went back to normal as people said, “Quit messing with my food, you goobs, and do something that has some substance.”

  1. Americans for Patriotic-Sounding Buzzwords says:

    Given the influx of cheap labor illegal immigrants flooding into our country from Mexico, we are recommending that “burritos” should be called “secure border wraps” and “refried beans” should be called “deportation beans”.

    And, a word of warning to Canada… We’re keeping an eye on you too, so you better watch yourself or we’ll start renaming “maple syrup” and “Canadian bacon” (which is really already ham, so I’m not sure what the point would be anyway).

    Seriously, Canada. Universal healthcare? Are you just trying to make us look bad down here? Cut it out!
