On 2008-01-18, Nomen Publicus <news@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> pondered onto
Why on earth do people think that chips should be "crisp". This is a
nasty meme that must be killed. Chips should be hot, think but bendy and
include an unhealthy amount of animal fats.
 For some reason these are called "french frys" in some countries but
chips and french frys are very different despite both being potato cooked in
I have a similar complaint about french fries. I was raised
properly (south side Chicago), and a french fry should be about 1/4"
square, and no less than 2" long, with the skins still on the ends.
This should be cooked in a deep fryer until it's greasy, firm, and as
you put it, "bendy". Anything less is a terrible prank foisted upon the
world by northsiders, who are undoubtly Cubs fans as well.
 In some places, there is no worse an insult.
