we speak of hamdogs in our house often, but have come to the agreement not to ever speak of eating a bowl of mustard.

This comic is like s'mores... in that I love s'mores.

I can't keep reading this comic at work, audible laughter from my cubicle is a dead give away that I'm not actually working.

Yuck, any amount of mustard is horrible.

Well Bucket, I'm glad that you decided that you are the only person in the world.

Noo, how is hunger like a french fry? Tell meeee!

This comic is like a container devoid of mustard, in that, by being devoid of mustard, it is even more awesome

I promised myself that I wouldn't comment to correct punctuation or grammar; so long as I could understand what you meant I could laugh. I adore BI. But I'm afraid there's one pet peeve I can never just drop.

"French fries". Please just say "fries". Or "chips". Or something.... But they're NOT FRENCH. Fries were invented in BELGIUM. Referring to something belgian as being french is like referring to something kiwi as being australian: You don't do it. It's insulting. They are two completely different countries with their own unique cultures.

(For the record, I am a Kiwi (New Zealander) who lived in Belguim for a few years as a kid while my mum worked as a diplomat--which might explain why I find these mistakes so annoying).

But French Fries is their name! (in the US at least)

Are you truly a Queen? If not, is it inappropriate for your name to suggest that you are, Queen_Undine?

Heh, I thought they were "Freedom Fries" now. But that name never really had a chance to catch on.

And @Kara, hunger is like a french fry in that it's gone when you have eaten. ;-)

Gus, I'm in the same boat. This is the 4th time in my life that's I've had to literally bite my tongue to keep from laughing when I shouldn't, and that's not a bad thing.

They are "french-cut" fries. It is a type of cutting like diced or julienned.

where is the problem in eating a bowl of mustard? you can put it in hamburgers, hamdogs, nachos and french fries...

holy shit! now is 12:28 and you come to me with food!! I'm hungry!!!

canon cartridge drum is like a beer can - it holds a liquid substance.
