The chip sandwich or chip butty, as it is more commonly known is a treasured delicacy in the British Isles.
As we all know, American's never pass up the chance to indulge in something that is highly unhealthy.
Just look at Donald Trump's diet - and who can forget when they thought they had invented the sausage roll and went crazy for it?
Now, they have just discovered the sacred chip butty and are trying to pass it off as something entirely new.
This all came about after the American media outlet Insider shared a video from a restaurant in Istanbul which made a more traditional version of the sandwich named a Patso burger.
This sandwich is stuffed with fries 🍟😱 https://t.co/cFk9Rq7z8B — Food Insider (@Food Insider)
We wouldn't begrudge anyone enjoying a chip butty - but British Twitter users have taken exception to America claiming the sandwich as their own.

One person recalled the sausage roll debacle.
@InsiderFood This is almost as embarrassing as when Americans discovered the sausage roll last year, like it was so… https://t.co/yr64DCF4dC — Dylan Reddan (@Dylan Reddan)
While another introduced everyone to the rarely seen pie butty, which looks absolutely delicious.
@InsiderFood It’s a chip butty, sold in every chippy in the UK since forever 😂😂. Now if you’re impressed with that… https://t.co/cn2RcLa9fO — The Ebullient Mrs Golby (@The Ebullient Mrs Golby)
We can't wait to see their reaction when they finally discover how to make a good cup of tea.
They also take the dried leaves of the tea plant, boil them in water.... https://t.co/rdaqI4mx6A — 𝓤𝓷𝓫𝓮𝓪𝓻𝓪𝓫𝓵𝓮𝓛𝓲𝓯𝓮𝓢𝓽𝓾𝓭𝔂𝓘𝓷𝓡𝓮𝓭 (@𝓤𝓷𝓫𝓮𝓪𝓻𝓪𝓫𝓵𝓮𝓛𝓲𝓯𝓮𝓢𝓽𝓾𝓭𝔂𝓘𝓷𝓡𝓮𝓭)
