Because everyone loves someone who smells like a fast food worker after a long day.

Del Taco french fries are awesome. Some of the best in the fast food world. But I don't want a candle smelling like them.

Subby is a worm who has never heard of French Milled Soap... and if they have it was a horrible joke anyway.

Even in keeping with the terrible joke all you'd have to do is put "don't use" betwixt "soap" and "French" and you'd have them appearing together.

Back in '98 they had something called "The Obscene Meal"....a burrito that weighed over a pound, large fries, and a large soda.

French Fry scent is easy.  Just use the oil from the fryer to make it.

Being willing to change the oil used in the fryer will lead to better soap... Soy and canola (rapeseed) make softer soaps with fewer suds/bubbles than coconut or palm kernel oil.
 
2019-03-12 02:52:24 PM  
I believe the joke should have been the first time "French" and "anti-perspirant" have appeared together.  Because that's true.

You do of course realize that "Del Taco" is an anagram of "COD TALE", right?

Random Anonymous Blackmail: Apparently subby has forgotten 9/11

They are freedom fries.


Actually "Freedom Fries" had nothing to do with 9/11 other than the very loose made-up connection in W's mind. .   They came about in 2003, when W Bush was trying to get international support for his dumb pet project in Iraq, and almost nobody was on board with it.   One of the many countries not joining the party was France, which pissed off a few Republican congressmen who decided to drop "French" from French Fries in retaliation. (Which, given that French fries are not a French cuisine, was probably perfectly fine with France.)

/Some of those whiny congressmen may have still been smarting from when France denied our planes overflight rights when we bombed Libya in 1986.

I believe subby does not know to what he refers. From my experience I would have to say it is Germans, especially nothern ones, who have little interest in soap or deodorant. Hamburgers stink.

The reactive carbonyl group of the sugar reacts with the nucleophilic amino group of the amino acid, and forms a complex mixture of poorly characterized molecules responsible for a range of aromas and flavors.

There's one just down the road in Salem. So, I can still get some of their fries, fish tacos and chicken soft tacos on the regular. Still miss In-N-Out, though.

Here in SoCal it was the Macho Combo Burrito.  Dunno if they still have 'em.

I can't eat that much anymore (lap band) but it was a fantastic cheap meal.  No fries.  No soda. Just a burrito the size of a brick and almost as heavy.  $3.29, around 1999.

For the unfortunate uninitiated, the food there is better than Taco Bell, and not as expensive.  But in this part of CA, there are mom&pop placed and taco trucks with dirt cheap authentic food.  Tacos Ensenada in Altadena has killer fish tacos for $1 each on Tuesdays, for example.   The lines are out the door though.

Let's see; we can pay some hauler to remove our used oils and grease, or we can make soap out of it and sell it back to our customers for a profit.
