The absurdity of this is too good to ignore. A customer complained about the high cost of beer and chips in a Perth bar restaurant recently. While most attention has focused on the prices, I’m focused on the chips. It’s a very architectural stack of chips in the photo below (from the above linked story).
I’ve seen that before… in the satirical BBC cooking show Posh Nosh, in the episode called ‘Architect’s fish and chips’. A screen capture is below. The chef at the Perth restaurant may be a fan and was having a laugh, or perhaps the restaurant is simply run by tossers. It’s most amusing regardless of whether this situation is concidental or deliberate.
A video of the episode is below. If you haven’t seen it before, the series stars Richard E Grant and is a brilliant parody of snobby television food porn.
