Did it stick because you like potatoes...?...Are you Portugese Spuds...?...

Back in the day when i had a little money i went for a visit to Portugal...the language barrier was a challenge in some of the rural towns that were centrally based near the border to Spain...
So although i embraced the local cuisine, the day i tried to convey my hankering for bacon n eggs for brekky to the waiter who didnt like tourists, was indeed challenging, but also answered why Portugese women commonly grace the earth with the pear shape... :P

It was a long time ago now, nearly ten years, but if i remember correctly, it went something like this--"Pitata fritahta, yumon, hhwwweeauvoss"...LOL...(spelt phonetically)...that translated into what we know as, Chips, quickly pan fried prosciutto that was somewhere between what we know as prosciutto and overdone jerky, & a couple of eggs...

Well... BLAHHH ...although it was the closest thing that town had to our bacon n eggs, it was anything but...

And once that had arrived and the waiter thought he was finally rid of having to be polite with me not understanding him, we came close to blows when i asked for tomato sauce to cover up/enhance (take your pick) what was effectively a tasteless chewy plate of cardboard glob that was going to unsatisfying sit in my guts all bloody day... :lol:


And i learned that was apparently a common brekky for them...deep fried chips for brekky...fair dinkum... :shock:

I couldnt help but think there was a little British influence there, what with the chips...i mean the whole bottom coastal area of Portugal had been over-run with Poms--i could not find a genuine authentic Portuguese meal there that wasn't a horribly cooked rump steak that was cut off the trunk of a tree, wearing a pre-cooked rubbery fried egg on top with a tonne of deep fried chips on the side... :crazy:

So...what i was getting at, is... :lol: ...maybe you got the nickname because like the portugese in that town, you like potatoes... :unknown: :)
Or maybe not...

Well how's that for going off on a tangent... :huh:

Anyway...i think the winner of the vision stakes for forum name has to go to, the distant cousin of chestnuts, chinballs... :clap:

To envisage that name surely must put any shooter off while shooting for best group size... :lol:

Credit where credits due stix, i got that primer pocket tool you suggested and it seems to work a treat. Cheers.

Don’t worry, the link is safe for work, but seemed appropriate given your dissertation for the etymology of my name.
