A revolutionary way to make potato based snacks. Its like a tennis racquet with all the strings removed, and replaced with cheese wire. this contraption is then held in place by something with a deep fat frier behind it. You then take something that could fire potatoes and aim it at the tennis racquet. The potatoes go through the tennis raquet and fall into the deep fat frier, thus making people who have to chip potatoes redundant. ( I was really tired when I wrote this other wise it'd sound funny )

       An issue of FHM featuring an article on firearms jokingly mentioned the use of pressurised potato-launching pipes in the same way as mentioned above.   

       There should also be the ablity to change the wire grid size so you could make things like wedges (which are much chunkier than your typical chip/french fry and also leave the peel on).

       Although not a tennis racket, this is baked. Old chain in the US named "Wuv's" had a thing you'd bung a potato into, pull the handle and the wedges would fall into the oil. I've seen similar ones for square cut fries...

       What's sad about this is that many fast food chains in the US no longer make their fries this way. Nowadays they use instant potatoes (reconstituted potato flakes), squeeze them through a Play-Doh machine to make strings then cut the strings to length and fry 'em. Nasty, nasty, nasty.

       Its amusing that, in the UK at least, fast food is neither fast, nor food.

       Don't say that - if you eat the cardboard it makes the happy meal almost as filling as the coca-cola that comes with it...

       Are you Kaz, the noted cartoonist?

       You could have them fax the order over and then put it through a paper shredder. yummy

       [Snarfyguy} No I'm not, who is he, could you provide a link to some of his stuff? Oh well I thought it was original.

       Two words as for your launching system - Potato cannon. It exists. These are fun.
