The 10 Commandments Of Poutine

The lard hath spoken.
The 10 Commandments Of Poutine

For some, poutine is a food. But for others, poutine is life. And for those of us who worship the almighty fries, curds and gravy, we take poutine etiquette very seriously.

There are rules when it comes to poutine. Rules that cannot be broken otherwise you might incur the wrath of the Sauce Boss. These are the rules we're talking about. The 10 commandments of poutine.

1. Thou shalt not put mayonnaise on thine poutine

Some men just want to watch the world burn.

2. Thou shalt have no other drunken junk food cravings before me, thine gravy soaked lord

You must remain faithful.

3. Thou shalt not worship false idols, like chili-cheese-fries
