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
Well, in Austrian, it's also "apple of the earth" :DErdapfel. (If you know dialects, you can already speak foreign languages. There you go!)
