A Guardian reader said we’re eating fish and chips all wrong and got a Twitter battering
Grace Dent’s Guardian review of an award-winning chip shop in Cumbria shouldn’t have been controversial; in fact, the review wasn’t controversial at all – but one of the comments certainly caused a stir.
This week’s Guardian restaurant column is about a northern chip shop. This comment has kept me awake. I. I just. What. pic.twitter.com/9mHGb9fvOt

Some people just want to see the world burn.
Twitter wasn’t impressed.
If you throw away the batter what do you feed the children?

Many wrong things are said on the Internet. Few have capacity to astonish almost everyone who reads them. https://t.co/DvpqyJY8Kh

James Brown (not that one) began to question himself – and the rest of us.
It’s so bonkers and wrong it makes me wonder if he’s actually right and we’ve all, everyone, been doing it wrong .

Finally, this response from KletterRetter showed just how ridiculous the batter comment was.

Guardian guy’s tiny mind would be blown by a deep-fried mars Bar.
