Morchella: ElPresidente: When I say it's not a pie, I mean that proper fish and chips has no more place being wrapped in pastry then a bowl of cornflakes. IT'S WRONG,Speaking of wrong...I'm definitely not British but I tried one of their beers last evening. Wells Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale.Not bad, very drinkable. Never had the pudding itself, but it did taste somewhat puddingish and the toffee flavor was very evident. But it's not what I'm looking for in a beer so that's probably that for this one.Oh, and since none was spilled in my lap or anywhere else, there was no wet sensation in my groin area.
sendtodave: DarkVader: ElPresidente: British Farker here - no. Wrong. Bad dog, M & S - in your bed.Nothing wrong with ingredients served separately on a plate, or especially eaten fresh outside the local chip shop when it's on newspaper and liberally sprinkled with salt and vinegar - mmmmmmmm.But it's not a pie, you marketing wankers.[8chan.co image 479x711]Did you not see the picture? Are you an idiot?I'm an American. It's a pie. It's not some British definition of a pie, it's just an ordinary pie. Of the standard pie variety. It's pie shaped, it's got a pie crust, it's got filling, It's a pie.And I kind of want.What if you deconstructed the pie?Would it still be a pie?
PunkTiger: I'd give it a whirl. I loves me some fish 'n chips... never had mushy peas before, though.
DarkVader: So, this got me thinking, what about an American South version?Pinto beans, catfish, greens, barbecue sauce, and fried potatoes and onions? Topped with a crawdad tail?Anybody think that sounds worth doing?
MylesHeartVodak: Give peas a chance.
lindalouwho: PunkTiger: I'd give it a whirl. I loves me some fish 'n chips... never had mushy peas before, though.Not even split pea soup?
deadsanta: 581 calories is ~1/5 of a daily ration for an adult male, according to this article...But that's only if you're a young male, say, 14-30 and you are healthy and active. Anyone older, or who works in an office environment, that's probably gonna land you several hundred calories in surplus at the end of a day. A few months later you're gonna be 10 ells overweight (or cubits, or whatever the weird English measure would be.) And people wonder why we're all so fat.
I'm no expert but...: Apart from the fact that there is bugger-all filling, the pie would appear to be very small too.And has already been pointed out, fish and chips does not need to be surrounded by pastry, it just needs a liberal covering of salt and vinegar.
deadsanta: But this suugested caloric intake is 2900 calories a day, and its offered in a confident offhand fashion that corporate fast food joints always use to disseminate bad or misleading nutritional info. There's no need to completely mislead people about their health if you are actually delivering a decent food product. And don't call me Shirley.
