M: If you're Scottish, please, let us know in the comments. Okay?
R: Yes. You'd do a better job than I can.
M: Fish and chips is traditional food in Britain and, well, in like Scotland. So fish and chips look like this. And the place where you go for this fish and chips. Is called a chipper.
R: Yes. Well, that's a slang term for food. Well, for the place, I should say.
M: Yeah, I go to my local chipper. And you can get there a burger. Chips, obviously. Usually, we call them french fries. But in Great Britain, they are called chips. All right? And this is why we have the confusion. So this is crisps, crisps, then chips in Great Britain and french fries pretty much all over the world.
R: But chips in Britain are a little bit different to French fries, because French fries are usually considered to be quite thin whereas chips in the UK are quite thick.
M: Oh, a local chippy... Chippy? You also call it chippy, right?
M: Yes. Something like by the lake. Mmm... So good. So good, dear listener.
R: I am so hungry.
M: Are you hungry? Oh yeah, you should be, yum, yum, yum. Rory goes to a fast food restaurant when he's desperate. So desperate, perhaps like, you know, like really hungry. Or, I don't know, desperate, like maybe sad or upset.
R: But usually when I'm really hungry, and I need something fast.
M: And then you said that it's counterproductive because you go to the gym, you work out. And then he goes to his local chippy and devours burgers and chips and it's counterproductive. So it's not productive. Yeah. After a workout to have all this fast food. Yum, yum, yum.
R: Well, it sounds like it is. It's probably not.
M: I think it's good. It's great. So like, I devour all these empty calories. And because I've earned it. So you earn money. So I've earned it after a week of following a rigid diet. So what's a rigid diet?
R: So a rigid diet is like a strict diet where you don't really have much variety or change in it because it's supposed to help support your lifestyle. And that's true for me. Like, honestly, every day when I'm in the week, I have a protein shake. And then in the afternoon, I have a wrap. And then in the evening, I'll have eggs, and that's it. Pretty much.
M: Fast food is also junk food. Yeah? But junk food is a little bit more informal. So like junk food. And which verbs can we use to say? Like, okay, I eat junk food, I eat fast food. Rory told us I sometimes indulge in junk food.
R: But that means that you're ...
M: You enjoy it.
R: You do. Yeah. But it's like a nice kind of enjoyment. It's like, it's also expensive, to be honest with you. So it's like you buy something that you really probably shouldn't. It's very expensive in terms of your health or in terms of the money it costs or both. And you enjoy it.
M: Yeah, and you can say that I'll occasionally indulge myself and gulp down junk food. Gulp down? Remember our story about Rory and his huge burger?
R: Don't be around me and junk food. Like it's not pretty. It's so bad.
M: So the burger would be all over Rory. So he just gulps down junk food. What's your favourite fast food? Do you think it's good to microwave eggs? And do you eat pizza crust? Tell us in the comments. Oh, I need pizza! Pizza!
R: I also need pizza!
M: Yeah, let's order pizza or McDonald's. Bye!
