The potato chip is the only known snack food capable of warping the space-time continuum.

Whoops! Maybe you were looking for Air. Wait, no, you were looking for chips, but the fucking packet was empty. Again.

~ Andy Warhol on Chips

A potato chip, or Crisps as it is known in other countries, is the sexy two-dimensional version of a three-dimensional potato. (For analogues in higher dimensions [1], see potato soufflé.)

For the religious among us who choose to believe lies, the so-called experts at Wikipedia think they have an article about Potato chip.


The existence of the potato chip was first hypothesized by Albert Einstein in 1903 while studying in the basement of his mother's house. (At least, that was what he claimed he was doing (*cough*wanking*cough*).) Potato chips were later produced in staggering numbers by tossing the entire state of Idaho into a rotating black hole, thereby vindicating Einstein's much despised theory of general relativity once and for all.

They then rose to become a smash hit reaching No.2 in the UK downloads chart in 1764. In first place came the Battle Of Stirling Bridge. Some dedicated followers were so dismayed that they entered the XBOX worldwide gaming championship, 2507. Jesus was among this crowd, along with Ghandi, Jack White and the world heavyweight boxing champipion, Pete Burns.

Home Improvement[edit]

In 1941, the famous non-euclidean architect M C Escher conjectured that the standard potato chip can be used to tile a bathroom floor. Unfortunately, Escher's attempt to prove this statement by actually tiling his bathroom floor with actual potato chips unexpectedly created a rupture in the space-time continuum, which drove his wife (Mrs Escher) insane. It also attracted large numbers of rats and cockroaches, so the Environmental Health Agency slapped a compulsory purchase order on the property and he and his wife had to go and live in a hut.

What's it made of?[edit]

The main ingredient in all potato chips is Soylent Green, more commonly known as people. OM NOM NOM.. humans...[2]

Potato chips made with Olestra™ will make you wish you were never born while you sing hymns on the toilet for the next seven years as you slowly drain. Not to mention the years of anal leakage that may follow.

Economic Crop[edit]

Some potato chips scream loudly when they sense imminent danger. These should be generally avoided.

Potato chips are an extremely important cash crop in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, West Virginia, and most inner cities in the United States. Potato chips provide fat, cholesterol, and shit that clogs your teeth and stuffs your crap factory which is what most obese backwater idiots enjoy in the areas where potato chips are a main course.

Potato Chip Etiquette[edit]

Since potato chips are an offense to Sophia, they should be consumed only in the most dire of circumstances.

They also must not be thrown on the ground in the presence of sea slugs. In 2006, the long awaited opening of the Mediterranean Sea Slug Preservatory in Venice, Italy, was marred by the sight and smell of millions of sea slugs in various stages of death. This was a direct result of a dispute on whether Lay's or Ruffles were the better chip. This is referenced in chapter four of "Walt Whitman in Australia" by J.Powell, L.Myers, and E.Voss.

Also, you must NEVER, EVER spill water on someone's potato chips, even by accident. Soggy potato chips are morally offensive and extremely disgusting, and getting them wet could result in your untimely death by strangulation.


Potato Chips have been know to prevent and stop cancer and heart ailments. They prevent fevers, colds, HIV, AIDS, Bacterial infections...ETC, SO pretty mush we need to eat crisps in our diet. Hell, why can't we just eat this every day without thinking about rice?

Who Eats Potato Chips?[edit]

Scientists have proved that, amazingly, absolutely everybody in the entire world eats potato chips, at least occasionally. Rush Limbaugh personally consumes 52 metric shitloads per year, accounting for over half of all potato chip consumption in North America. In second place is Australia and then the Mormons, who consider potato chips sacred and use unleavened Pringles in their polygamy ceremonies.

Light Yagami has been shown to take a potato chip...AND EAT IT.
