Even the prissy-pants french sent us a really big statue for saving their bacon.

Excuse me? Just when did this happen?


You know, that Statue of Liberty.

Came from the french, you remember.

Sure I remember but the bacon saving occurred in the 20th century and the Statue of Liberty was given in the 19th century so it couldn't have been a reward for something that hadn't happened yet.

Did we do some french bacon saving in the 1800 that I don't recall?
