Preaching for the Chinese, and fish fingers

on Saturday night, John 6 - do not work for food that spoils... and they always have really nice Chinese food afterwards, so we talked about food over the meal. Many of them have no English so we converse in French. They were pretty amazed to hear that in England we regularly and habitually eat fish fingers, des doigts de poisson.

You can see what's coming, can't you.

"Fish fingers?" said one, waggling his fingers. But fish have fins? They don't have fingers.

Yes, but we still eat fish fingers. Sometimes we also eat chocolate fingers - des doigts chocolatés.

That was when somebody perked up. Oh yes! There's one brand of batonnets au chocolat that is called that. Fingers de Cadbury.
