Interesting fact: As a choice in the Kid's Menu besides Ice Cream,Burger King in Germany offers apple sticks which look like french-fries. They are called: Apfel Pommes, which would mean: apple apples.
Well I'll be damned. That takes things to a whole new level
In Belgium they still use the "Pommes frites" but in France we usually only use "Frites" :)
I'm Belgian and I can tell you everyone says "frites" here too! Even in Dutch, they say "frieten" or "frietjes" (a diminutive). "Pommes frites" sounds really old-fashioned to my Belgian ears. :)
I like how you've drawn the apple being fried. Its expression is hilarious.
Haha! Thanks. "Waaaaaughhhhhhhh!!!"
In Austrian German we say "Erdäpfel" to potatos, which literally means earth-apples, basically the same as "pommes de terre".
That's actually very interesting...
FYI: The "long form" pommes frites is still occasionally used in Germany - but then, curiously, it's usually pronounced more or less correctly.
Zu Pommes kann man auch Fritten sagen.
This sounds like something I'd do lol
