Aha! We were on the wrong wavelengths. To me chips mean potato chips of the 
Wise variety. Now Fries are entirely different. A lot of folks paint their hot 
oil-treated sliced spuds with ketchup. Including me. Put in linguistic 
context, for example, fish and chips, chips then assume the shape of fries. Context 
is all.
