The answer to that question should be: THERE ARE NEVER TOO MANY FRIES, but apparently the New York Times is here to ruin our lives by reminding us, once again, that they’re not vegetables and not good for us. WE KNOW, OK!? Go back to discovering how San Francisco is the new Brooklyn or something.
Vox had a thought-provoking follow-up, suggesting “sides of fries” should actually be much smaller for those who just want a taste but don’t trust themselves with a full order. I probably fall into this category more than I’d want to admit, so I’ll allow it. Just bring the fries anyway.
