I need a theory of semantics that accounts for this pic.twitter.com/PQjKV0bSSO

Ignore the fact that only 9 percent of the items on the Fish and Chips menu here include both fish and chips, I'm still trying to figure out the costs. Chips seem to add £1.90 to every other Fish & Chip option (regardless of its fishiness), but if you order chips without the chips, then they only cost £1.90 — yet, if you add chips to your chips (which is presumably one whole order of chips, rather than 2), then it only adds £0.50 to the standard cost that you would otherwise pay for the null set of chips.
Am I doing this right?
