So I walked into KFC yesterday:

Me: "Hi, I'd like a Twister combo please"
Counter girl: "OK, what would you like to drink?"
Me: "A Pepsi. Is there anything I can substitute the fries for? I'll pay a little extra."
CG: "Well, no. Sometimes you can when we have onion nuggets, but we're out right now. You can substitute for a macaroni or potato salad, or a coleslaw."
Me: "Err...no thanks. I guess I'll take the fries then."

I get my order, with fries, and sit down rather disappointed. I then immediately notice a large sign next to the other cash register that says "Poutine your Combo for only 99 cents!!"

So I go back up to the counter.

Me: "Did you not notice that sign that says 'poutine for 99 cents'?"
CG: "N...uhh...we're, uhh...out of poutine."
Me: "You're out of poutine?"
CG: "Yeah, we don't have the cheese."
Me: "Whatever."

The next customer that is served by the guy at the other cash orders a poutine and has it in his hands within 30 seconds.

Me: "You just told me you were out of poutine!"
CG: "Oh, I guess they just found some cheese."
Me: ""
CG: "Don't be angry with me, sir."
Me: "Well you just lied to my face! Of course I'm angry. I'd like a poutine!"
CG: "Okay then. That'll be $3.99 please."
Me: "What? I'm not paying for it now."
CG: "Cheese is expensive."
Me: "Let me talk to your manager."
CG: "I'm the supervisor in charge."

At which point my head explodes, I grab my twister, and leave the store.

Time for a Canadian band to come to the rescue....

I never meant to make you cry
And though I know I shouldn't call
It just reminds us of the cost
Of everything we've lost
Bad timing that's all


- Blue Rodeo

It was just bad timing that came between you and the poutine....

Shame on them for not giving you your poutine! Especially the lying about it not being available.

Poutine is a serious thing (although I do have to admit, KFC's poutine is pretty good)

Wow some great pics there. I never realised Montreal and Quebec had such old architecture.

Must go Visit both places and vancouver some time.

This reminds me this Castle/Fort ( Pendennis Castle) i saw in Cornwall ( Southwest England) at the end of September.

I think this thread is my 2nd fave thread on interland atm. The more i see/hear of Canada there move i fall in love with it.

My sister in law wants to move to Canada but my brother is having none of it.

Great pics Dave C. I love the old clock tower.

So for the uninitiated what exactly is Poutine?
All the pictures of Canada look amazing. I had a brief visit to Vancouver several years ago and loved it. Would love to go back sometime and explore more of the country if time/money ever allows.

Gibson Girl. That Autumn picture.

I love the Dungeon one as well.

Jellyfish.

Also love these pics.

And some more! The Skerwink Trail which is I believe close to Port Rexton. It's the best.



Sea stacks.

It doesn't look like I was standing very high up from the sea in this picture, but trust me, it was high.

Poutine is a bed of french fries (preferably as hot and crispy as possible - avoid those battered fast food fries), covered with cheese curds. The whole thing is topped with plenty of gravy. As the gravy and fries are hot, the cheese melts into the fries and creates a flavour explosion.

But another common name for poutine is "heartattack on a plate", because it's absolutely awful for you.

But it's sooooooooooo good.

Yeah, that's what I love about Montreal. I have yet to go to Quebec City, but from what I hear it's even more beautiful than Montreal arhitecturally....very old world, very European. The atmosphere of Montreal was incredible -- such a warmth, despite the freezing temperatures! It didn't matter with people like that brimming the streets. Sophisticated, warm, filled with charm....and smiles. And lots of poutine.

Delish.

(Just look out for the drivers!)

Why am I not shocked that you know this?

I tried poutine for the first time this year and it was surprisingly tasty! Of course, that might've been thanks to the booze...

I need to visit Canada more often. I'm so close, after all.
