Franco-umbrage, Frumbrage

There. If anyone technoraties "Frumbrage," I should be at the
top of the list.

Anyway, from My Way:

Cartoon Protesters Direct Anger at U.S.
Feb 9, 5:19 AM (ET)
QALAT, Afghanistan (AP) - Police killed four people Wednesday as Afghans enraged over drawings of the Prophet Muhammad marched on a U.S. military base in a volatile southern province, directing their anger not against Europe but America.
The U.S. base was targeted because the United States "is the leader of Europe and the leading infidel in the world," said Sher Mohammed, a 40-year-old farmer who suffered a gunshot wound while taking part in the demonstration in the city of Qalat.
From the headline I imagined Bevis and Butthead, Popeye, and
Betty Boop holding up anarchist A's and Bush Lied signs.
But the funny part is the "leader of Europe" part. Sure hope
the article is available in French. If so, you'll be able to hear
the faint thwap thwap thwap of millions of cheeses being
thrown across the room.

ALSO:This will change --
