Nanny Wants Thicker Chips
Well now, here is a Nanny scheme that in theory I could almost buy into.
Nanny's chumps (sorry, chums) in the Food Standards Agency (FSA) are concerned that thin chips absorb more fat than thick chips.
As such they are campaigning for chunkier chips to be produced.
In theory this is an excellent idea, the thin reconstituted "potato type" reheated shite (aka "fries"), offered by certain fast food chains and "restaurants", are an abomination and have zero taste/sensuality in the mouth.
Factoid: contrary to what some would have you believe frying chips in dripping or lard is better for you, because vegetable oils contains trans fats.
I am all for a return to the more traditional thick cut chip, as served by our traditional chippie.
However, as with all of Nanny's schemes, there is a fly in her oinkment.
Can you guess where the FSA intends to start rolling out her "thick cut chip" scheme?
Yes, that's right, chip shops!
The FSA will run pilot schemes in Cambridgeshire, Greater Manchester and Northern Ireland. Officials will visit 80 chip shops to examine how much fat is in their chips and offer advice.
Message to Nanny, chip shops already serve thick cut chips and cook them fresh (ie they are not injected with fat and then reheated).
Nanny should be visiting those outlets that serve "fries" not chips.
A remarkable waste of time and money.
Oh, and by the way, I have never forgiven the EU for banning newspaper as a means of wrapping my chips!
Visit The Orifice of Government Commerce and buy a collector's item.
Visit The Joy of Lard and indulge your lard fantasies.
Show your contempt for Nanny by buying a T shirt or thong from Nanny's Store.
