Introducing a better blog and the six chips scandal

For those of you who like their blogs with a coherent narrative, and away from one man's gripes about chip portions and unremarkable boy-meets-girl-meets-indifference tales, check out Regina's blog about waiting for a kidney transplant on This Limbo.

Feel free to offer her a kidney or, if you're a little too wedded to your internal organs, just have a read because writing of this quality demands a greater audience.

Back to the portion of chips.

Now, I'm no gastrophile, but if you can count the number of chips on your lunchtime plate then you're on to a loser.

Six. Six fucking chips with my BLT, arranged atop each other like an asterisk.

There's something very wrong with this picture, especially when you're paying a tenner in a nostalgic nod back to 2006. More fool me, I know, but I had a good mind to call Joe because this would likely rile him up like a malnourished taxi driver.

First Seanie FitzPatrick, then Mr. Brady, now this, surely the tipping point for revolution.

I hope Regina gets her wish early and successfully.

Were they not even the 'home fries' type?

Radge said...

Oh I hope so too.


They were at least very nice chips, I just wanted three times the amount. They were my 'slow drivers.'

Back to Fortes with you for a bag of chips and garlic sauce.

Now there's a hearty feast.

Radge said...

Ah yes, the GoodFella himself behind the counter.

Andrew said...

I'm larging commenting right now because the verification word is 'jagglyzy', and that's too good not to type.
And also to thank you for alerting me to Regina's blog.

Radge said...

I'm thinking of branching out into blogger agentry, Andrew. Happy to see it taking off so quickly for her.

Conan Drumm said...

Did you order the recession-proof special?

Fair dues to Regina she's brilliant. I am tempted to make a terrible joke about yourself, herself and Bernard but won't.

Conan Drumm said...

It's Brendan, isn't it? Not Bernard.

Radge said...

Yep, Brendan. I don't think he has a surname but I'll ask herself.
