Probably wouldn't need that redundancy if they weren't located next to the moonshine distillery ...

The alternative topic heading might read “Never assume your bosses have a brain.” wink

I find both are often equally valid.

I love the wording how "the works" is the main portion/feature of the dish and that the fries are secondary. You have me curious on what concoctions you can come up with on that menu to slop over the french fries?

"Fries with the Works" is to PEI what "Poutine" is to Quebec.
The original version created in a small diner in the village of O'Leary, calls for fries covered with hamburger and gravy with peas. It's not pretty, it's certainly not good for you, but it's addictively delicious to your inner caveman, fat cravings.

Variations have spread to include the above plus carrots, corn, etc. I'm guessing, basically whatever you have extra of in the kitchen.

Somewhere in Washington, Tom's ears are ringing and he just came to attention.

Suddenly he wishes his desk were just a little but higher, or that he sat just a little further away from it.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that if my wife were served that, she'd ask who threw up on her fries.
