You Say Tom-ah-to, I Say Po-tay-to

[Rihannsu] Giellun: <Funky Beat!> Actually, S’Kurn enlightened my on the difference between ‘chips’ and ‘fries’. Chips are always cut from a fresh tomato (tom-ah-to), whereas fries can be made from processed, glued-together potato leftovers, McDonalds style
[Rihannsu] Giellun: <Funky Beat!> That’s why you can still buy ‘fries’ in McDonalds in Britain — They simply are not chips 🙂
[Rihannsu] Aidoann: …Tomato?
[Rihannsu] Giellun: <Funky Beat!> Potato
[Rihannsu] Giellun: <Funky Beat!> D’oh!
[Rihannsu] Velvok: Yep. I’ve just done an inventory of all my British Lit classes and all the stuff that we covered. “Telly” was the only horrid export of theirs.
[Rihannsu] Velvok guffaws!
[Rihannsu] Velvok: Tomato Chips!
[Rihannsu] Aidoann: Oh good… I was scared!
[Rihannsu] Giellun: <Funky Beat!> I like Telly! 🙂
[Rihannsu] Velvok: What makes that sentence golden is that it has both “tomato” and the pronunciation for emphasis. 🙂
