Fried

Fried

There’s nothing that can get a rise
from folks like crispy (ummm!) French fries.
That über tuber tater tot?
It’s one fast food we like a lot.

And yes, in Britain, ‘chips’ they’re called.    
No matter, since we’re still enthralled
by shoestrings, crinkles and whatnot.
It’s one fast food we like a lot.

They even made a stamp (above ↑)
to honor fried potato-love.
With burgers, it just hits the spot.
It’s one fast food we like a lot.

There’s nothing that can get a rise…
It’s one fast food we like a lot.

Notes:  I found a cool website called Viridian's Postcard Blog whose weekend post was all about food-themed postage stamps.  Although their 'Mr. Linky' was already closed by the time of my 'discovery' of this site (yesterday), I was curious and began searching for a few images of those food-themed postage stamps.  In the end, I found a number of them from a diverse assortment of countries.  A couple of them had some really interesting artwork, but the stamp above was the one that 'fried' or rather, 'fired' my imagination.  

The form, as has been for the last few days, is Kyrielle Sonnet.

UPDATE: Theme Thursday's prompt this week is 'produce.'  Since the über tuber tater tot is (in its original form) a form of produce, I'm gonna be lazy and give 'em this one.  ☼

  2. "über tuber tater tot" - I like that.

    And I like chips instead if fries - you have to have the contrast of crisp skin and fluffy innards. Fries are all crisp and no fun.

  6. J. Cosmo - thanks! I was hoping someone would like that. *grin* Also, although my family all think I'm nuts, I prefer my fries not quite crispy. (Yeah - I like 'em salty and a bit soggy.) ☼

  7. Brian - thank you. And hot sauce? Never thought about it on fries, but I'll have to think about it now. ☼

  8. It is funny to think of life without French fries, something almost impossible for most of us in this day and age. Although I cannot think of a uber tuber dish that I have disliked.

    I really like your verse and that stamp is really neat and something I have not seen.

    Thank you so much for sharing it for this weeks Theme Thursday Produce. Will be interesting to see what you do next week.

    God bless.
