Please Excuse Our President

Dug this brief blurb off of talk.origins this morning. From the pages of New Scientist:

HERE’S one US company where “freedom fries” surely never appeared on the staff restaurant menu, even when Francophobia was at its height. One of its products is a laptop bag which bears a label in English and French.

The French version, only, continues (in translation): “We are sorry that our president is an idiot. We didn’t vote for him.”
