How would you tell the difference between real chips (fries) and crisps if you call all of them chips?

Back then in 1703 England.

"So Fredrick, how were your fried potato meal?"
"Oh, they were quite crispy, I may say"
"Crispy? Would you care to hand me one of those crispy meals?"
"No! these are my mine, they are my delicate crisps".

The end.

(Now I want some potato chips....)

What do Americans call oven chips? Oven fries? That makes no sense therefore Britain and Ireland win this one.

We call them kettle chips,looks a bit like this:

^Really drives the point that potato chips/crisps are really fried parts of potatoes that nobody wants, sliced up, cooked in oil and repackaged as chips/crisps.

Here in Ireland, and other places too I presume, some fancy designer gourmet producers market their crisps as Kettle Chips. They look like that photo, thicker and chunkier than regular crisps.

It's pretty common in the US with families of Irish/British descent. Chances are if your ancestors came from Isles like mine did, there's a family recipe for kettle chips.

Actually, yes. It doesn't have to make sense. 

I'm ok with British English and American English being different. When in US, it's fries from the fryer and chips from a bag. When in UK it's chips from the fryer and crisps from a bag. Just toss them in your boot and drive on the wrong side of the road. It's all good.

And I doubt anyone can explain chicken fried steak. 

As l remember, it is done in a skillet and not fried on a grill. Using a skillet makes it chickenized.
