    IT occurred to me reading the What's for Dinner thread that even though Canada and the US (and other countries) all have similar fastfood chains, but are the menus the same?

    For example, In Canada, KFC does not sell Mashed Taters :grumpy: I had them in Idaho for a family vacation once. Instead, we have french fries (which I hate).

    Another example: We have The Big Xtra at McDonalds, but does the US have it but it's called a Big 'n' Tasty?

    Input...

    I think it was Mansi who mentioned that they had McDonalds in India. With the view towards cows what is that menu like?

    Hmmm... What movie does this remind me of? :mrgreen:



    "In Paris you can buy a beer in McDonalds, and you know what they call a quarter-pounder with cheese in Paris?"
    "They don't call it a quarter-pounder with cheese?"
    "No man, they got the metric system, they don't know what the f*** a quarter-pounder is"
    "So what do they call it?"
    "They call it a royale with cheese"
    "Royale with cheese"
    "That's right"
    "What do they call a Big Mac?"
    "Big Mac's a Big Mac, but they call it Le Big Mac"
    "Le Big Mac"
    "What do they call a Whoper?"
    "I don't know, I didn't go into a Burger King...You know what they put on french fries in Holland instead of Ketchup?....mayonnaise"
    "God d***"
    "I seen 'em do it man, the f****** drown 'em in that s***"


    Gotta love a tivo
