IS this the world’s longest chip? The 28-inch mega-fry was found by Tuscaloosa resident Gary Young with his Arby’s beef and cheddar meal. He said:

“I was shocked. That’s like the biggest fry I’ve ever seen. I thought it was a snake.”

He’s not yet tasted it, so it might be. For now it’s stored in a Ziploc bag in his refrigerator.

But is it a long chip or just an artfully cut one? Anyone can make a long French Fry. All you need is patience and a steady hand. This one in Buffalo, US, was 3-ft long:

The question was designed to trigger a local news debate, with readers sending in photos of their own long chips.

Maybe you just need a big potato to make a big Great British chip?
