I'm sort of slow, subby. Maybe you could possibly highlight for me the passage in the article where it says he wants warning signs on the poutine? Thanks a lot. I'm trying, really, please be patient with me.

FTFA: Her irate father told the Sun Monday he's not after a multi-million dollar lawsuit, he just wants to speak out to warn others and perhaps get the Colonel to turn the temperature down on the cheese and gravy.

Subby reads between the lines?

Also, this just in: Poutine is bad for your health.

I've read that word for years and only just bothered to look up how it's pronounced. You learn something new every day. Now, when visiting Canada I can properly say "Please keep that poutine as far away from me as possible."

Poutine is nasty stuff, the only thing I can imagine that would be worse is cold poutine. All that congeal fat, blech!

Poutine should have warning signs, but not for any of the reasons discussed in this article.
 
2010-01-19 01:31:33 PM  
Lee Lakin said he even accepts some responsibility for the incident because he let his daughter Kendell, 15, go to fast-food outlet alone on Saturday.

SOME? How about ALL douchewad.

Tell your daughter to keep hot food close enough to eat, but far away enough that she doesn't faceplant into it if she goes all grand mal.

/then when she breaks her nose you can sue KFC for not warning people that their tables are hard.

The headline in ~2 years: customers sue over food poisoning due to incompletely-cooked food.

"I'm looking for someone to stand up and say, 'We're sorry Mr. Lakin, we're sorry Kendell. We want to make this right and hey everybody this food is hot.'"

I heard this douchenozzle on the radio this morning. He was also ripping on the KFC employees for not knowing what to do when his daughter started into her seizure. So I guess medical training is mandatory for all minimum wage food service jobs.

The guy sounded like he wanted to blame everyone for the unfortunate incident that happened to his daughter. I was yelling at my radio in frustration the whole commute, but it made it seem shorter, so that's good.

Seriously? Would he prefer all restaurants serve lukewarm food? Perhaps he should restrict his daughter from eating anywhere other than salad bars. And stay away from the soup!!

Yeah they need to put warnings on just about everything when dealing with a loved one with epilepsy. So far my wife has encountered needing warning signs on walls, corners-of-coffee tables, wired routers, (yep, took us right off the intertubes), window sills, warm baths, cats, kitchen floors and a whole host of crap my wife has encountered during her seizures. Sometimes I wonder when I'm gonna get sent down for domestic abuse what with all the bruises she gets after events. "Honest no I don't beat my wife she has epilepsy and really DOES run into doors/floors/tables/whatever happens to be around when she goes down."
 
2010-01-19 02:55:25 PM

Well, absolutely. It's not like DAD should know what to do when daughter has a seizure, right? That might mean parental responsibility and doing something besides standing there screaming "MY DAUGHTER IS HAVING A SEIZURE!!!! WHY DON'T YOU IDIOTS DO SOMETHING!!!! HELP! HELP!"

I don't believe we eat poutine around these parts. If we did I assure you we would probably not stick our faces into it.

This is why you flip your poutine upside down onto a plastic plate or whatever. That way, the cheese stays on the bottom, covered by the fries and gravy, whose heat will melt the cheese by the time you finally work down to it.

I do agree that he is not being reasonable ... molten cheese has the heat capacity of the frikken sun and there is nothing KFC can do about it. Something *he* should have taught his daughter when he was teaching her all the other stuff she needs to be extra careful around because of her condition. I assume they've had that discussion, right?

Are you in the UP? 'Cause I've spent decent amounts of time living/working all over the LP and don't remember ever seeing fries and gravy on a menu.

From what I've read on many a poutine Fark thread, cheese by itself won't cut it. Decent fresh cheese curds are needed.

That said, I'm practically Canadian myself, save decent health care and milk in bags. I know about as much French as some Ontario residents I've met do. Speaking of that, the 2nd episode of the Kids In The Hall miniseries is on CBC tonight. Yay!

it's not really the same as chips with cheese and gravy - close, but cheese curds are a very different texture than regular cheese.

As for chicken-fried steak, while I've not had that either, I will ask you: when was the last time that you had something batter-dipped and fried that wasn't good? Fried dough, jalapeno poppers, fish?

The deep-fried candy bar is probably overdoing it. I've resisted the urge to try that at the fair.

The lady that got the 3rd degree burns from the coffee wasn't trying to get rich either. She just wanted someone to pay for her medical bills and re-working her life around the outrageous trauma of 3rd and 2nd degree burns on her genitals and legs.

One of the first things I learned a lot about courtesy of Fark was that case and I was quite surprised at the level of misdeed on the restaurant's part.

I also first learned about Poutine on Fark FWIW.

I understand entirely why the cigarettes are included in the meal deal, since I read this post:

Ishkur: Poutine is THE ULTIMATE food to eat after a night of drinking.

There is nothing more satisfying.


It all makes so much sense. Especially since many a night after drinking in college ended in a 24 hour diner, smoking, waiting for our chili-cheddar-fries to show up. Damn that sounds good now, too.

First off..KFC's stuff is not REAL Poutine....

But yes I have had it many times! With the Spicy Big Crunch...

The article is wrong...The father says the location told him it arrives frozen & is microwaved... I think he made that up.

That is WRONG... They practically make it in front of you.. Its normal KFC fries put in a round container, they then open an individual serving size of cheese curds (plastic wrapped) on top & then put their gravy on top of that...Nothing microwaved..doesn't come 'pre made'...

Now REAL Poutine should be with fresh cut potatoes, a good beef gravey & fresh cheese curds!

HEAVEN!

Sounds like the father is a complete jackass and I do not feel bad for him or his daughter.

Imagine if she had the seizure on the sidewalk and banged her head, whats next put up a sign that says "sidewalks are hard?".

Like I said, that McDonald's was very negligent in this case and her suffering profound. The restaurant un-wisely decided to blow off her claim against them for reasonable money. The ambulance chasers took up her case and made McD's into pariahs. They could have just looked at the facts that there had been repeated, substantiated claims against them for serving crazy-hot coffee (>200F) instead of just industry-standard hot (140-180F IIRC) to unsuspecting folks. That difference while seemingly small is expressed in your first "trial sip" of coffee burning you no matter how properly you sip it.

There's a lot of ins, a lot of outs, a lot of things going on inside old Duder's head on this case. It is worth the in-depth read.

Oh and for the record, my daughter racked up $26K in medical bills in one week, and that total included zero surgeries, skin grafts, trauma relief, invasive procedures, anesthesia, debilitation, or rehab. I'm just saying that sh*t gets expensive in a hurry.

StreetlightInTheGhetto: ZeroCorpse: In Michigan we do french fries & gravy, and sometimes add cheese. We never called it poutine, though.
But we're practically Canadian here, anyway. If we had milk in bags, learned mandatory French, and had decent health care, you couldn't tell us apart.

Are you in the UP? 'Cause I've spent decent amounts of time living/working all over the LP and don't remember ever seeing fries and gravy on a menu.
From what I've read on many a poutine Fark thread, cheese by itself won't cut it. Decent fresh cheese curds are needed.
That said, I'm practically Canadian myself, save decent health care and milk in bags. I know about as much French as some Ontario residents I've met do. Speaking of that, the 2nd episode of the Kids In The Hall miniseries is on CBC tonight. Yay!
/I like living on the border


We used to eat french fries and gravy when I was a kid up in Yooperland. In my uncle's restaurant. I always preferred the ketchup, though.

I put cheese on my french fries now sometimes.

Don't really understand all the grossed-out poutine haters. Potatoes and gravy? With cheese? I've heard of a lot weirder things.

I bought some poutine at the drive-through. I put it between my legs up against my lady parts (which was quite surprising as I am a guy). I must have squeezed my ample thighs too hard since the next thing I knew I had abnormally hot gravy causing 2nd, 3rd and 4th degree burns to my junk. I sued and won $20,000,000, which was reduced on appeal to a lukewarm cup of coffee.

He's right.

We also gotta' avoid:
making scissors pointy,
making sidewalks hard,
making cars with hard spots on the front and back
amongst other things.

Because someone with a medical condition that promotes seizures, could randomly dive into a seizure and DIE!

Oh, I see.. you think the fact that the percentage of the population that suffers from such seisures are so small as to be insignificant? So we shouldn't do anything to fix this?

Are you discriminating against the differently abled?

Are you a mean heartless bastard that would rather see people, even a small percentage, die? Die before they even have a chance to have kids?

Good, so stop "saving" people. You're weakening the genepool by permitting non-viable genes to participate in it. It's the same damn thing with a different face on it.

If something should be fatal, or damaging to the point that the person is unable to have kids, it NEEDS to happen that way, to improve the genes our children have, rather than coddling bad genes into the next generation.

It's your children's futures, and their children's futures, not mine.. I have a genetic heart defect and various other genetic issues. I won't have a child, though I do have a stepson.

I don't care what you do, the weak and poor will always breed faster because it's coddled and taken care of.

Some people can get a 1st degree burn from 113F water.

Length of contact, heat density of the material, matter as much as the temperature.

It would not suprise me at all if cheese and gravy served between 140F and 165F was hot enough to give 2nd degree burns.

Because health regulations require the restraunt to maintain the food at that temperature until it is served, KFC is in a no win situation here.

Still doesn't explain chicken fried chicken.

If I were the store/corporation, I would NOT issue an apology, and here is why. Oh yeah, he's not "wanting 10 million dollars", but you know good and well if the store says "we're sorry", there will be some sort of shark lawyer that will talk him into a lawsuit, because the idiot lawyer will come out and tell the guy that the corporation ADMITTED liability by saying we are sorry, and, this being the state of CALIFORNIA, home of the "we sue for anything", I would NEVER admit anything.

Please explain "chicken fried chicken" then. Is it chicken that is breaded like chicken? Or chicken that is breaded like steak that is breaded like chicken? Why not just call it "fried chicken"?

Is unbreaded chicken called steak fried chicken?

They need to start making hot food that isn't actually hot.
Most other fast food places have that part down pat. Well, except for coffee you can use to weld with.

WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHIDREN!!

Anyone who thinks KFC makes poutine deserves to have their face scalded off with hot chicken shiat and processed cheese product.

I_Am_Weasel: Poutine is excellent stuff, if it's proper poutine. KFC...not proper poutine.

Though I guess it falls in line with their entire menu not being proper food.

Festival de la poutine de Drummondville
Location: Drummondville
Region: Centre-du-Québec
Category: Festival / special event
September 03 2010 - September 04 2010

I'll be there.


If their frites are any indication of how KFC makes poutine, I certainly would not expect too much. I admit to purchasing the chicken from time to time, but it is variable in quality, and much depends on who is operating the fryer.

I note that some people are making negative remarks about poutine. It sounds like it should be gross, but it is really very tasty and should be sampled before forming an opinion.

POUTINE: APPLY DIRECTLY TO LOWER FACIAL AREA

Weaps: Yeah they need to put warnings on just about everything when dealing with a loved one with epilepsy. So far my wife has encountered needing warning signs on walls, corners-of-coffee tables, wired routers, (yep, took us right off the intertubes), window sills, warm baths, cats, kitchen floors and a whole host of crap my wife has encountered during her seizures. Sometimes I wonder when I'm gonna get sent down for domestic abuse what with all the bruises she gets after events. "Honest no I don't beat my wife she has epilepsy and really DOES run into doors/floors/tables/whatever happens to be around when she goes down."

Sounds like you need you a seizure alert dog (new window).

Don't worry, I saw it...

Pocket Ninja: I'm sort of slow, subby. Maybe you could possibly highlight for me the passage in the article where it says he wants warning signs on the poutine? Thanks a lot. I'm trying, really, please be patient with me.

You know, if every FARK headline was just a regurgitation of the facts of the article instead of some bit of witty license, no one would come to FARK.

Came in here hoping for a gif of a tard repeatedly slamming their face into a dish of poutine. Leaving disappointed.

/Would have settled for faceplanting into plate of spaghetti.
//Fries, mashed potatoes, oatmeal, anything.
///Would even have settled for video of Letterman throwing 500 pounds of poutine off a roof.

Gyrfalcon: Thisbymaster: Nothing gets you off better then having your dick in a chick while she is having a epileptic seizure.

Unless your dick is in her mouth. Then SOMETHING would come off...and you wouldn't be getting it back anytime soon.



Depends, does she spit or swallow?

It's pronounced, "put-sin" !!!!?????

WTF !!

There's no combination of letters in that word that produce the "S" sound!!

(I like exclamation points when I'm mad)

When I read that word, I hear .. "POO TEEN"

Poutine = "poo teen"

Why don't we just add sounds to any old word we want, HUH?!?!? If we can do it for POOTEEN, why not words like:

French = sounds like "kat-fuker"
cheese curd = sounds like "larks-vomit" (there should be a label that reads, "WARNING - Lark's vomit")
gravy = sounds like "gray-vee" ..... mmmmmmmmm gravy (sorry, I got off topic there)

"Poo-teen" is the English pronunciation, "pu-tsin" is the French one, since "-tine" is pronounced "-tsin" in French.

Here's another example:

www.worthlessthoughts.com

French: "Gui-yo-tsin"
English: "Gui-yuh-teen"

Since both "poutine" and "guillotine" are French words, the "-teen" pronunciation is just you Anglos messing it up. :D

Savage Bacon: If you're eating poutine anywhere except at La Banquise, in Montreal QC, then I'm afraid you're not actually having poutine, but rather some sort of aberration.

Also, should you ever choose to eat poutine at a KFC, then you deserve to get your face burned. Badly.


Restaurant Vincent is my go-to location, up on Laurier near Papineau. La Banquise is fine, but I really don't care for 23 different kinds of poutine.

What do you THINK is going to happen when you fall into hot food? Sounds like a self-inflicted wound to me.
