What I find amusing about it - is that the word 'Beef' comes from the French word Boeuf - which came to Britain after the 1066 invasion & the Normans (the new 'overlords') imposed a new language structure on the British (Anglo Norman) Prior to that - it was just called 'Cow'

So it's a French word they are apparently 'insulting' us with

How does that work ?

They should call us ChickTikkaMassalas

Since that is now our national dish.

We need to aim for at least a Jalfrezi because:

a) it rhymes with crazy
b) it's hot and full of sparkling taste sensations (Ck tk Masalla is just meat with red gravy)
c) It sounds harder than masalla, which is a bit ghey.

If we are working on improving our national identity this should be a key milestone.

ETA - Chinese food is also out - it is just hot jam and meat.

If I need a lesson in ANYTHING, I really cannot see me ever asking the French.

I have not read or seen anything good about them. Ever.
