A significant hangover dictated that fish and chips were recently on the menu. This meal prompted a question that I believe has a very elusive answer.
What amount is the correct amount of chips to order and to eat?
It is a tricky one to get right. Is it better to over order or to under order?
I accept that scientists (or should that be mathematicians or nutritionists) have possibly got more pressing matters to attend to rather than pouring their time and energy into coming up with a formula that calculates exactly the perfect chip-to-people ratio. But it would be quite a handy one to know.
Someone suggested that possibly two chips less than you eat?
That was then upped to be about twelve less than you eat.
Have you ever ordered just the correct amount?
Is there such a thing?
Or shall it just remain one of the World's Greatest Mysteries (along with how many surgeries has Michael Jackson really had and how come my desk always looks like a recycling truck has tipped its contents onto it, yet my house is very tidy?)
