French Fries from KFC

“The French: a people who have used their sophisticated culture and beautiful language to bequeath to the world the sliced potato.” ~ Bauvard

But of course the French don’t actually call them that. They call them Pommes Frites or often simple Frites and here in England we call them Chips and what America calls chips we call Crisps. Being married to an American has made me realise just how different our two versions of English really are and even now after 5+ years together we still find words and phrases that the other has no idea what it means.
