Usage notes[edit]

This term was a politically-induced replacement instigated by the US government during a brief dispute with France, but never widely accepted. Serious use of the term was limited to the cafeteria in the Capitol building from March 2003 to August 2006, but it was widely reported upon in the media and referenced by comedians.
