not really a miracle


These directions from an antique french fry cutter came from Tim. While the fry cutting may be good, it is evidently not ACTUALLY miraculous. Thanks for clarifying, miracle cutter.

"Antique"??? I have one of those. I don't think it is actually the "Miracle Cutter," but I do like it and use a lot.

I like the truth in advertising. Fry all those potatoes, and indeed, it's "just enough to cover bottom," at least in my experience.

Perfect New Ribbon Style Shoestring Potatoes. that's a whole lot of modifiers.

I always love ridiculous qualifiers. There's a pub in midtown NYC that says something like "The oldest family-owned Irish pub in midtown". Whenever I see stuff like that, especially on Food network shows (I guess everyone wants to be "famous" for something) I always add my own ultra-specific qualifiers to the end, something like "...owned by (name of owner)".

Maybe the "miracle cutter" is what you use to turn a few big miracles into many small ones.
