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

Wise choice. I tried it once - it was horrid. Imagine a corn dog but instead of the wiener, you have a melted glob of chocolate inside.

I'd like to try some poutine. It is possible to make it myself, or do I really need to go to Canada?



If you don't actually go to Canada, it isn't "official" pountine..


Doesn't the word POUNTINE sound like it means vagina... or is it just me???

just sayin...

The best kind of poutine is varmit poutine.

/can't believe this hasn't been said.

The only tough part is getting cheese curds (unless you know some dairy farmers). Then you just get some good fries, throw some of the cheese curds on top and melt it all up with some hot beef gravy.

Poutine is a dish consisting of French fries topped with fresh cheese curd, covered with brown gravy...


We call that Disco fries here in NJ..or more guido-ly cheese and gravy fries...a diner classic. And great when shiat house drunk..

PS. ALL MELTED CHEESE IS HOT! you want cold, use cheese whiz on your KFC. *shudders*

What if the poutine was too cold? Someone would sue over the nasty waxiness of cold french fries. It would hurt their sensitive taste buds.

wtf.


I still can't believe that throwaway coffee cups have to read "Caution: Contents are hot." Wow. Now all restaurants will have to hire someone to walk around reminding people "Be careful, the food is hot. Watch out so those ice cubes don't hurt your teeth. Make sure your child doesn't stick a straw up their nose. Don't eat too much. Don't trip on the way out."

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.

StreetlightInTheGhetto: I don't even remember what my first one was for. ... actually, I only vaguely remember my headline for 1/3. So if you're thinking a greenlight is gonna gonna be this awesome mind-blowing orgasmic experience that'll automatically make you a TFer and beloved by everyone here... yeah, no.

No, I thought there was some semblance of fact checking and that trolling headlines were discouraged. I am waking up from that dream. So when the day finally comes that the head is "Police beat 4 year old girl to death for jay walking" and the actual story is about a fire in an apartment building, I will know, it is just fark "showing the media what kind of crap it spews out as news".

As far as fast food joints, A&W had decent poutine, followed by Burger King and KFC. McDicks don't have poutine on their menu but that's only because they're fascists.

I think Harvey's is the only fast-food place to use real cheese curds.

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.

2010-01-19 04:37:36 PM  
I don't think it's unreasonable to suggest that the ideal serving temperature for poutine is somewhere below 2nd degree burn territory. But yeah, the father's righteous indignation is kind of over the top.

FTA:
Lakin said. "KFC needs to figure out how to make this poutine without burning people.


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.

Idiocracy. Spare the rod and ruin the species.

And they call us strange. Southern natives have been eating french fries and white gravy for years.

factoryconnection: shadowself: Her medical bills were $2.86 million?

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.


I heard on NPR a year or so that she had lost most of that money on appeal.

So she is laughed at as an example of litigiousness gone awry and STILL has to pay back almost $400,000 in medical bills. (412,525.04 Canadian)

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.
