Okay, i have to take issue with you on the topic of soggy gravy fries! When we lived in Tennessee there was a great sandwich joint on the strip by the university. With your turkey sandwich and fries you'd get a big bowl of gravy. We'd stick a whole bunch of fries in there with just the tips poking out and let 'em "steep" for awhile. Mmmmm...mmmmmm!

Point duly noted. Potatoes and gravy are definitely made for each other. My objection is in taking a potato, taking some pains to make it crispy, and then making it soggy. There's no appreciation for the middle step. That All Star fry guy did some serious frying, but, as it turns out, he should have just stayed in bed to nurse his hangover. Still, I'm intrigued by the scene you describe! Was there a penalty if your fry fell all the way in? The next time I'm in TN…

On a final gravy note...bob has now corrected me on 2 counts: 1) the gravy fries came with a pizza burger and not a turkey sandwich, and 2) only 4 or 5 fries were soaked at a time so that, in fact, they wouldn't get too soggy! ha, so much for my blog comment :-).

Wait a minute, now you're onto something. Pizza burger???
