Well colonel,

If you can eat it directly from the plastic bag, they're chips. If you have to cook them first, they're fries.

** gee, I'm being real helpful today

Not sure it is helpful Yeti.
Aren't the ones that go in the plastic bags cooked first?
That means they are cold fries.

Yeti, does that mean every single “fish and chips” shop got it wrong and should be called “fish & fries?

At the risk of going into Frank Costanza territory, what about crisps?

Awake,

c'mon man (or lady or whatever these days nttawt), if you eat them out of the bag and they don't need cooking, they're chips (or crisps as the To and Froms call them)

The ones in plastic bags that need cooking are fries (...and no I wasn't catering for the weirdos who might want to eat them uncooked and cold...ewwww)

Perhaps another way of looking at this would be suggest that chips come cooked and fries don't

Way, way back this was my first confrontation with this anomaly:

"Would you like your burger with 'The LOT'?"
"What's 'The LOT'?"
"Egg, bacon, beetroot, pineapple...basically, everything."
"Wow...ok yeah, why not - everything!. Wow."
"Do you want chips with your burger?"
"Of course, add on a bag of chips."
"We don't have bags, we use buckets."
"Whoa, a bucket! A whole bucket...can anyone eat a whole bucket of chips?"
"Of course, everyone does."
"A bucket, hey? Ok, for sure."
"Salt or CHICKEN SALT?"
"CHICKEN SALT? Holy cow, now that really is something!"

That's verbatim - I'll never forget it, an after midnight roadside food van in Townsville, early '80s. I honestly thought they ground up dried old roast chickens and put it on their fries - loved it ever since.

If I may come back to a point that the Corporal made earlier...

Could he or somebody else here please explain what the following lyrics mean:

"And little hurly burly came by an*s curly wurly
and asked me if I needed a ride"

That song takes me back to the halcyon days of the WANFL as it was then, Saturday afternoons, hearing the half-time scores on the radio from around the grounds, back in the days when footy players had proper names like George Michalczyk, Garry Gibbelini, Brian Ciccotosto, even a Tony Buhagiar. There wasn't a Lachie to be seen. A young Dennis Cometti cut his teeth as a fledgling radio commentator calling these very names.

There you go, Caleb, if you're reading, there's a bit of WA footy history for you.
