Go anywhere in the world, you'll find a huge fan base for French fries - crispy fried potato chips. Even in India, this is a go-to snack, especially, of kids. But this is probably the first time that the mere sight of French fries irked some people. Why? A Twitter user posted a picture of French fries stuffed between two dry pieces of bread and it appalled people so much that a full-blown discussion on such strange food concoctions found in different countries started.
Apparently, this French fries sandwich is a common English meal and is called 'chip butties'. This American could not hold back his exasperation on finding this unique meal. He shared the picture of the sandwich on his Twitter account and wrote, "Just learned about chip butties, which is an English food that is literally just French fries in between two slices of bread. This is just making me so irrationally angry."
We can't blame him, can we?

Guys this isn't even the worst. (It's actually ok as a one off snack. I got used to it. Thin bread, butter melted & ketchup) BUT When I first came to this country I was served this... when I tell you I felt personally attacked pic.twitter.com/I4ghTw0Ep4— STOP KILLING BLACK YUTES (@amaladior) December 13, 2020
