                    During the First World War didn't the Battenberg's change their name to Mountbatten, and the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha's to Windsor in order to sound less German?

From a nation that brought forth the likes of Bierce, Twain, Runyon. O Henry, Menken, Steinbeck and other great masters of cutting with words this is like deploying playground soakers when you posses rapiers
                    Maggie the Milk Snatcher? Iron Duke? This from the island that bred Shakespeare? How about "The Welsh Goat," or "The Coroner"? Seems that Britons are pretty clever when it come to slinging the . . . . nicknames.

                    In another thread one of your compatriots raised the notion of suspending Habeas Corpus, as if King John had never signed the Magna Carta. US, UK, France: our very notions of individual liberty, crafted over many centuries, are now being viewed as so much intellectual refuse by so very many of our countrymen. No longer are we separated by a wide ocean, but by a thin veneer of reason covering a quivering mass of paranoia.

                      Yes. And in the US, entire cities were renamed to avoid the taint of Germanhood. Which is only a more visible part of all those families who changed their names to avoid the discrimination, such as Mueller = Miller and Schmidt = Smith, etc.

                      My favorite one though is that German Measles was renamed Liberty Measles, which is all kinds of strange when you consider it.

                        Ahh, the good old days. Wasn't Budweiser marketed under the brand name "Rice Water Pee Pee" during 1917 and 1918?

                        Rubella? I want some documentation of that one. I mean, wouldn't you think that a disease that makes children blind, you'd want to name it after the Germans?

                          Like I said, a pretty dang strange one. But then, hysteria is rarely logical, and makes about as much sense as the "freedom fries" morons in the Pentagon.
