Happy birthday potato chip.

Even though they are not potato chips, my favorite is Pringles. I eat them with cream cheese.

Potato chips must be cooked in peanut oil. All others are poop.
2003-03-05 11:44:14 AM  
Ha! That's great! Why serve a Red-X when you can make the theif look like a total asshat!
2003-03-05 11:45:45 AM  
not quite as good as what the dude from cockeyed does to the pics, but not bad
2003-03-05 11:46:16 AM  
that photo hurts my eyes and head. Blah

Interestingly, if you check the properties on the pic to get the url, and go there, and then come back to this page, the pic is displayed, albeit altered to the dimensions of the denial message.

Anyone else bothered with the juxpostion of "Christian" and "Science"? And what are the "monitering", proof that they are all full of bullshiat?
2003-03-05 11:47:42 AM  
What was the name of the chips that made your ass leak?

Those were good.

I think RandyJohnson owns this thread.

The potato chips with Olestra made your ass leak. :) Or wait, that should be :( since I've had Olestra chips before.
2003-03-05 11:53:03 AM  
We may be British but we're not dumb (well most of us).... grrrrrrr
2003-03-05 11:53:16 AM  
The_marq: No, it's not anal leakage anymore. They changed the warning to "loose stools," probably because 90% of America would think they meant those things you sit the legs.
2003-03-05 11:54:49 AM  
Christians and science don't mix. I don't trust it.
2003-03-05 11:57:03 AM  
Cape Cod potato chips. Mmmmmmmmmm. No ass leakage.
2003-03-05 11:58:16 AM  
I often give bandwidth h0rkers a slip of my /tastless picutre archive.
2003-03-05 11:59:48 AM  
I saw Anal Leakage in '81 at CBGB's. They rocked.

This must be the first time that someone ever wished that they did not get the first listing in the thread.

Olestra. You are thinking of Olestra.

The chips were called "WOW!" chips. I'm not going to make a joke about the name in relation to loose bowels. I'm just not going to do it.
2003-03-05 12:06:21 PM  
Before I clicked the link I noticed what website it was on. So I prepared myself to only view that site as long as it took me to find how old potato chips are.

150 years and kickin'

I love the burnt chips. Is there a company that sells only burnt ones?
2003-03-05 12:08:21 PM  
Best barbeque chips: Utz Barbeque and Carolina Barbeque (tie)
followed closely by Herrs Barbeque

A bag of Utz and a bottle of Vitamin Y (yuengling)and Albo's set for an afternoon of football-watching

Christian Science = Cult
2003-03-05 12:10:35 PM  
Right on, Albo. Ever been to the bottling plant in Pottstown? Every guy has an open case next to him, or at least it was that way the last time I went..

The Sam's Club and other 'private label' bags tend to have more burnt chips than 'Name Brand' chips.

Yuengling is the most delicious beer on the planet, bar none.

Yuengling pwns j00.

Kadath: yep, took the plant tour. It was cool to shoot down a couple of glasses of beer at the plant ratskeller at 10:30 in the morning after the tour. topped off my eggs in grand fashion

My new year's resolution was to not eat a single potato chip this year. So far, two thumbs up.

The damn things make me sick. They're so loaded with chemicals I can't pronounce, it's not even funny.
2003-03-05 12:14:38 PM  
Anyone in the Iowa/Illinwhaaa/Missouri area knows that Sterzing's are the greatest chip on the market. My wife can't handle the grease-film left in her mouth after eating one. mmmmmmmmmmmm greeeeeeeeeeasy
2003-03-05 12:15:37 PM  
Yeah, well, we may call 'em 'Crisps' over here in the UK, but we've certainly got the best flavours.

Call yerselves land of the free without Pickled Onion, Salt & Vinegar, Prawn Cocktail or Worcester Sauce?
It's just a sad, pitiable fact that most of you just don't know what you're missing. Poor you ;-)

(And we do have chips by the way. They're thick-cut potatoes which look a bit like wood chips, fried so they're still a bit squidgy (but not actually crispy, hence the name. You folks call 'em 'French Fries' for some unfathomable reason - the french haven't got a clue why ;-)
2003-03-05 12:17:20 PM  
Oh, don't worry, we have Salt and Vinegar chips in the states.
2003-03-05 12:17:53 PM  
Can I get french I mean Freedom fries and a Turkey I mean Freedom sandwich with that.
2003-03-05 12:19:22 PM  
Eat them while you can, tax-free
2003-03-05 12:19:59 PM  
Fruitbat: not only do we have salt and vinegar flavor, but we have Crab Chips, which are seasoned with Old Bay. Sublime.

and dozens of other flavors, too. Come visit us and get your eyes knocked out by the gigantic super markets with entire aisles loaded with a variety of products your puny island couldn't hold.
2003-03-05 12:20:39 PM  
Prawn cocktail?!?!? ewwww.
2003-03-05 12:20:57 PM  
Not hard to guess that Albo is from around Philly... but Utz Bar-b-q? I mean, they ain't bad or nothing, but there's certainly others that have a more gusto barbeque flavor to them (I don't care for barbeque myself...try some Bachman Redhot chips tho if you think the skin in your mouth needs to be replaced).
2003-03-05 12:21:34 PM  
Whatdya know im eating chips right now. Grandma Utz are the best ever, followed closely by Lays Baked Sour Cream and Onion, mmmm.
2003-03-05 12:21:56 PM  
Best potato chips ever? Thinly sliced Red Bliss (skin on) fried in Duck Fat. Quack quack yeehaw

Eddy insisted, against strong opposition from some of her advisers and church officers, that the words "Christian Science" should be in the paper's name. According to one of her biographers, Robert Peel, to Eddy, "the designated title was an identification of the paper with the promise that no human situation was beyond healing or rectification if approached with sufficient understanding of man's God-given potentialities. Nor did the 'good news' of Christianity involve the prettification of bad news, but rather, its confident confrontation" (witness Monitor correspondent David Rohde's widely followed reporting in late '95 on alleged massacres by Bosnian Serb forces).

I think they are a decent publication

GoodyearPimp: close, central PA. My kids toured the UTZ factory in Hanover. and i've been drinking the Y since before they went outside their traditional 100-mile limit back in the late 80s.

i like a sweet, not hot, bbq, which is why i like the UTZ and Herrs regular bbq.
2003-03-05 12:24:23 PM  
Is this gonna be another football/soccer type thread? I mean, even when the article points out that potato chips were invented in the good ol USA long after we kicked the Brits out? Just like the UK to try to subvert things in order to pretend they're still running the show. I'll give them the thumbs up for salt and vinegar though as it seems apparently that particular flavoring came from across the pond.
2003-03-05 12:25:49 PM  
Hey Albo, I am at University Park, where are you?
2003-03-05 12:27:40 PM  
gratefuldead: oops, i should have said southcentral PA, not central. you centre countians have appropriate claim to the latter. harrisburg. making laws and cutting penn state's budget
