in thread Fries are best with...

We fussy English folk eat chips, other people eat fries. Although chips are usually thicker whereas fries are thinner and crunchier.

As for the lack of curry sauce, there's also no option for chip barm, which makes sense because most people outside the North West of England won't know what one is. In most of England, they're chip butties. I've heard them called chip stotties (I think) in parts of Scotland. So, I guess curry sauce doesn't deserve to be listed if as a nation we have so many different words for chip accompaniments.

I voted for bacon double cheeseburger, but I'm beginning to think that shouldn't even be an option because the chips/fries accompany the burger, not the other way round. Looking at things that way, my vote would go to fries with a free holiday, lots of money and eternal happiness. ;-)

Isn't this supposed to be about Perl or something?!

    I've always wondered. What to English people call chips if they call fries chips?

    I mean, chips (Lays, Ruffles, etc) are called chips because their in the shape of a chip. Fries are in the shape of shreds or sticks or planks.

      We call them crisps because they're crispy, at least by potato standards.
        What's funny is in the states, we *do* refer to fries as "chips" if it's with fish. That is, we don't order fish and fries -- we order fish and chips. Otherwise we never refer to fries as chips. Heh.
