well, i'm not so sure what a "bic" mac is, or what fries has to do with ball
point pens but, if you mean a "big" mac - as in "HTML is to the Internet as
Fries is to BIG MACs", then you should know that selling fries to customers
wanting a big mac is a classic example of what is known as "cross selling" amongst
certain capitalistic, imperialistic, all-over-you-like-a-rash companies. the
customer didn't want it, but you sold it to them anyway. it is one reason what
the aforementioned companies now have outposts in afganistan and the artic circle.
it goes like this: you ask for a big mac, whereupon the pimply faced youth asks
you "would you like fries with that sir". at which point any self-respecting
person would say "look bozo, if i had wanted fries, i would have bloodly well
asked for them!".
ditto mime with my email.
