French Fries Revolution

The story about why French fries are not French will be the topic of another posting.
This contraption symbolizes the "French Fries Revolution". Belgium holds the record for the longest period without a Government. People decided a few months ago to hit the streets, launch a peaceful "revolution" to protest, but also - and perhaps mainly - to dance and celebrate...while free fries were distributed in honor of the country's well known dish. This fries carriage was put together by local scouts to be part of their annual spring parade.
