as in infection?


Cathal writes, "I saw this sign outside this amazingly bad chipper in town (Dublin, Ireland). I think it was Burgermax. I just loved the idea that people who work in a chipper can only be politely reffered to as 'Staff'." I didn't know that Irish people called something chippers, but I think it's awesome.

Interesting, too, that space between "with" and "in."

"chippie" or "chipper" = fish and chips shop. easy enough :)

Also....maybe wizards-in-training can fill out applications for a staff.

Burgermax is actually an amazingly good chipper. They have the best pizza slices in Dublin. Shame on you Cathal.

We say 'chippie' here, or 'chip shop' sometimes . . .

And we spell the infection 'staph' (short for staphylococcus).

@Pink: I thought of that. "Surely you wouldn't begrudge an old man his walking stick?"

I think a woman named "In" is in search of penis, and is too polite to refer to it as such. Thus, the use of "staff".

A "chippie" is a "chip shop," in which basically everything you order comes with "chips" (which means french fries, of course).

It's not just fish and chips; in fact, some of them don't serve fish. They might serve burgers, gyros, fried chicken... anything greasy.
