    I actually read somewhere that French Fries were invented in Iceland?!? Not sure if it's true but that would really call to question the validity of the 'French' version of 'Fries'!

    Order ham on your pizza and you'll get something different than Canadian Bacon.

    Back bacon is brined and comes from the pig's back you ignorant motherfuckers! Ham is cured and comes from the pig's haunch. Don't they teach you anything about pork?

    Also, for Lechien - not all BJJ comes from the Gracies - google Oswaldo Fadda. Maeda had other students.

    Lol. There's something inherently funny about a user named "heavy grappler" getting worked up about the difference between ham and bacon. :icon_chee

    We call it jiu jitsu.

    The reason it is called BJJ is because Rorion trademarked the term Gracie Jiu Jitsu, otherwise it would be known as that to this very day.

    they were invented in belgium

    actually I invented the "french" fries,once upon a time I had the horrible idea of mixing 5 different belgian beers together with russian Vodka before walking through the kitchen door with my genius retarded mastermind. The only thing I remember is that I woke up because someone was banging on my door. when I let him in and offered him a drink, I saw the genuis thing I created while being totally off this world, well atleast mentally. My first reaction was, DAMN dude! that stuff looks like shit, like a french fuck has peed all over it.. then I grabbed all my mood together, took out some ketchup and decided to give it a go.

    it was fucking DELICIOUS! the next day I went to a cooking show , mixed my vodka and 5 different beers and blew all my concurrention away! Since of today, nobody knows how french fries are really made, we all just mix russian vodka and 5 different belgian beers, and our mind will create them theirselves!

    and this, ladies and gentlemen, is how the french fries were born.

    French people call fries "pommes frites" which doesn't make much sense since pomme is apple, not potato.

    Sure. Count Koma had more students then just the Gracies. Ronaldo Jacare comes from Oswaldo Fadda lineage who was never taught buy the Gracies. Luis Franca Filho is another. The Nova Uniao co-founder Wendell Alexander is of Fadda lineage.

    Killer. Bacon is called according to what part of the pig it comes from, or from the cut of the bacon.

    BTW, does this thread belong in the grappling forum? :icon_chee
