    Re: fries

    Only the first two seem natural to me.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Re: fries

    I have edited your post and numbered the choices to make it easier for people to respond.

    I find 1, 2 and 6 the most natural. 10 might be heard. The rest are unnatural. You could add "too often" to the least.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
