Brilliant. Your contribution is acknowledged by the Poutine High Council

Young, fresh cheese. Young cheddar or mozarella.

Raclette. Absolutely.

Good suggesiton.

Too bad you never get to eat any...

Best poutine I ever had...
Nice story.

my hometown of Portland Maine has only 1 restaurant with poutine on the menu. I've never had the authentic version so can't call myself a connaisseur, but that didn't stop me from composing this haiku:

Fries, curds and gravy
As far as the eye can see.
Poutine in my dreams.

Playoff poutine talk leads to second round exits. Thread with caution, my friends, thread with caution.

Check your facts.

1. The Poutine thread led the Canes to the cup.

2. (They beat the Habs in the first round)

1. Why did you make a thread leading the Canes to the cup (over, amongst others, the habs)? You might as well have been holding that stick up to our captain's eye!

2. Oups, my bad. Wait, that's even worst. PLAYOFF POUTINE TALK LEADS TO FIRST ROUND EXISTS!!! ACKNOWLEDGE POUTINE IN YOUR HEART AND IN YOU TUMMY PEOPLE, BUT AVERT FROM SPEAKING IT'S NAME DIRECTLY AS IT CLEARLY DISAPROVES OF THIS!!!

1. We did not know of the power we were weilding and had not yet gained control of it.

2. Poutine talk leads the team to the cup.

my poutine senses have been telling me to check in....

I now see why...well here we go again


The night they invented poutine
It was a most peculiar scene
Ginette Reno was shy and thin
The Nordiques began to win
Jacques Parizeau sang «God save the Queen!»

The night they invented poutine
The night they invented poutine

No one knows the precise origin
Where or when this food did begin
Everybody in Québec will tell you with a grin
It was their little village that invented the poutine

To be really authentic the potatoes must be old
The gravy must be hot and the cheese must be cold
With a journal de Montréal wherever it is sold
Served with a roll in a bowl by a troll

You put some potatoes and some cheese in a tin
But the cheese won't melt till you put the gravy in
Then it sticks to your fork and dribbles down your chin
And that's how you know that you're eating a poutine

If the French fries are greasy and the gravy's nice and hot
The cheese curds melt as they come out of the pot
But once in your stomach they congeal into a knot
If your food does that then poutine is what you've got

Some use mozzarella but that isn't really it
And they serve it at McDonalds but the French fries are ****
And I hate to be picky but I have to admit
It's hard to eat when the cook has a zit!

There's no way anyone would call it haute cuisine
But it's not really junk food it's something in between
But it's better than a burger or a Mike's submarine
A balanced diet is a beer and a poutine!

This ladies and gentlemen is the very definition of specious logic. It's analogous to suggesting that Bruin fans remonstrating with us about the Ole chant will cause untold and adverse effects to be visited upon their club.

Well, I'm sold. Still, would have been cool to make up another name to refer to IT. I would of liked to have seen "Super Happy Fries With Cheese With Sauce Traditional Quebec Happy Food". Sounds catchy.

I ordered a Poutine today at Quiznos in Ottawa
The girl behind the counter with a Sens pin on her shirt said what the fudge was that?
I replied you know gravy cheese and fries!
She said oh you Habs fans are all the same just a bunch of bass holes
I told her to puck off and give me a poutine.
She called the police

THE END.

From your time in Japan? What's that on top of it, chicken wings or something?

Was it any good?
