"No more fucking chips. Ohhh. Oh, go on then. With ketchup and mayonnaise. Love you, chips. Chips are my friends. In my tummy, friends! Numnumnumnumnuuuuuum."

When we were in Belgium last weekend, we had chips (i.e., fries) with every single meal. This is not an exaggeration. Adam came out with this utterance the night we got home. It's nice that he is so inviting toward the chips. Wouldn't you get in his tummy?

  1. Apparently STM was channeling a nom nom cat:

  2. Of course STM talks about fries when coming from Belgium.
    Damn the english name for it! we invented them, we are the masters of fries! the French had nothing to do with it.

  3. @Marlon - My understanding is that the "French" part has to do with the way they are fried. So just find a Belgium way to fry them and we'll change the name.

  4. I love mayo with my fries as well, dipping between that and ketchup (:

  5. No, they are called "French fries" because the Belgians who invented them spoke French, since they were from the French-speaking part of Belgium, Wallonia. Has nothing to do with "how they are fried", that's nonsense. Also, why have fries with every meal? I don't know where you two ate every day.

  7. They CAN'T call them Belg Fries, someone would change it to belch fries, and THEN where would we be?

  8. @Bram - There was no need to be so rude to me. That's what they taught me in school, that it was how they were done that gave them their name.

    Of course this was the 80s and my teacher also said we were all going to die in the coming ice age caused by global cooling but before that we were all going to lose our jobs to robots and it was all President Regan's fault. Seriously, she'd bring in magazine articles about these things and make us read them out loud. First we'd all be homeless slaves to robots, then global cooling would freeze us all to death.

    Still, you could have been nicer to me. I said "My understanding" which implies "I don't know for sure but this is what someone told me when I was a kid."

  9. Reaganomics wanted to make ketchup a vegetable in school to save on children lunches ... chips like vegetable children

  11. Sorry to all - but it has to do with how the potatoes are cut. They are french cut. Anyone ever make green bean casserole and use the french cut green beans - cut lengthwise into strips? Same thing. The potatoes are frenched, then fried - french fries.

  12. I probably have babbled a word or two in my sleep about chips...they're worth blabbing about in all states of consciousness!

  13. actually... jamisings might have been right. they're called french fries, because of the way they are fried.
    "french fry" used to refer to almost all things deep fried (though oddly enough, not to potatoes - that development came later). later the idea grew that, during WW I, the americans came here (to belgium) and called them "french fries", because french was the official language used in the belgian army at that time. those are the two main ideas. it isn't known which one is the right one. it's a fact that "french fried" was used for deep frying long before the potatoes were called that.

  14. Ketchup and mayo in my area is called "fry sauce". You would be surprised at how many think that combo is foreign! McDonald's used to package it for us, but stopped to save costs. (I live in Idaho, USA.)
