Wanted fry guy

Waltham Police report they are looking for a guy who, apparently not satisfied with the extra fries in his Five Guys bag, made off with a 50-lb. bag of pre-cut French fries on his way out of the restaurant at 1030 Main St.

We are hoping that we can "mash" all of the evidence together and come up with a suspect. Call Detective's at 781-314-3558 if you can identify this individual.

I must say, that's quite Simplot to steal the spuds.

Since he stole them in Waltham, maybe he's on the Lamb in Weston?

Stealing = taking something that wasn't his.

Therefore "stole" is redundant.

So just peel off two twenties from your wallet, give them to the franchise owner, and the police can go about business that's a higher priority to you.

You tell 'em, anon Waltham resident whose money is being wasted! You post a comment on uhub! I'm sure the Waltham police are reading this right now for the express purpose of getting your feedback.

Restaurant fries are a total ripoff and even a 20oz bag of Ore Ida Crispers costs $3 on sale in the supermarket. I can see why he’d steal the fries.

You know that all food costs more in restaurants than it does in grocery stores, right? That's part of their business model.

Unless he had a cooler handy, frying thawed, previously frozen french fries will result in fries that are limp, greasy, and disgusting. Blech.

Those are bags of raw potatoes. They're probably worth like $5 wholesale.

I guess the guy just really wanted some skins in the game.

"Pre-cut"?

Shows how naive I am. I always assumed they were bags of spuds and the local staff did something transformative between the "bags piled in the dining room" and "measure a basket-full for the deep fryer" stages - despite the fact that I've never seen an employee lift one of those bags and (now that I think of it) I don't know if I've ever seen anyone there use a knife.

You're shattering my faith in institutional fables. Next thing - you'll be telling me that today's bag of spuds isn't really from Yastrzemski's Family Farm of Long Island, NY.

Farm and location!

I walked into the downtown one a couple of years back and saw a family name that I had not seen in decades - one of my grade school classmates in Oregon had grown the spuds that they were using that day! Of course I had to get some! Yay Pat!

Thanks for chiming in to tell me that they tout their supplier's name and location, Swirly.

After all, other than the fact that I had just made reference to the practice, someone might think I had never heard of it.

Five Guys NEVER use potatoes from Long Island.

Those are not bags of pre-cut french fries sitting there all day. Just think about it for a minute. If those were fifty pound sacks of frozen, pre-cut fries, sitting there all day long? They wouldn't be frozen anymore, they'd turn to mush, and the bags would be soaked.

Here's an explanation of how the fries are made:

What he really meant is that they're pre-cut french fries...as in "before they are cut" french fries...aka raw potatoes.

Yeahhhh, that's the ticket!

That's the best laugh I've had in several days, or at least since I read the tale on Facebook of the woman whose husband misread the Ex-Lax instructions and ate the entire bar...he couldn't leave the bathroom long enough to call Poison Control himself, and she couldn't stop laughing long enough for several minutes to explain to the very patient hotline operator what had happened. As it turns out, consuming 12 doses of Ex-Lax at once won't actually kill you, but it's really not something anyone would recommend doing for obvious reasons...

(Speaking of which, does anyone besides me remember a site called Poison Pentium that dealt with the daily adventures of a state poison control hotline operator? It came down after his supervisors found it, even though there were no actual HIPAA violations, but it was possibly the funniest thing on the Web for a couple of years, mainly due to the author's editorializing on his various clients...)
