no greg.


3 or 4 weeks, it'll fall off by itself. (pm me for the whole joke)

i remember my sister ordering "dippin' eggs" at a restaurant once, then wondering why the waitress didn't know what the heck that meant.

how about bad italian translation: gabba goo (cappicola), cava deal (cavatelli and broccoli), or pro-shoot (prosciutto)

Crilladillas: Bullīs Testicles

Good Morning,

This is it as Michael Jackson sang ... Bullīs Testicles ...

Then in the Iberian Peninsula, excluding the 5 Catalonia Provinces, there are Ox Tails and Sheep Testicles ...

Now, it is quite common for Spaniards to call in English :

Ox Tail = Bullīs Tail
Bullīs Testicles = Bullīs Co go llines ( yees )

Cojones = Throw Pillows
Cojines = Dresser Draws
Cogollines = Testicles

Have a nice Monday,
Margi. Ciao.



This is a dish steeped profoundly in Andalusian Taurine culture and still served in Taurine Tabernas ...

Okay I've got one for the other Sicilians in here:

When my mother made breaded veal cutlets, she'd take the left over bread crumbs and eg, mix it together and fry it up just like the cutlets. What she called it would be pronounced frawshoola, emphasis on the first sylable. I don't know how to spell it, or if she was pronouncing it correctly because the immigrant Sicilians had their own special pronunciations for just about everything. Goomba, for instance instead of Compare. So does anyone know what I am referring to?

Sounds like gutless cutlets to me. :)

I'm not Sicilian, but could you be referring to "friciula"? Basically, it translates as "fritter" or pan bread and is a way that thrifty Italians would use up leftover polenta or other dough.

I've heard it pronounced "free-choo-lah", but it seems close enough to your mother's pronunciation to be the same thing.

s.l.o.b, are you talking about mistresses or friends?

a goombah is a guy, or a male friend. emphasis on goom.

a goomah, emphasis on the second syllable, is translated from comare, or mistress/girlfriend.

Always refered to the chicken tail as "The pope's nose"

We also called the crust on Mac and Cheese "The Scab" and we fought for it.

Chipped beef on toast "Shiite on a shingle"

The end of the banana "The butt"

Aussies use lots of slang- dead horse (sauce) googley (egg). Road kill burgers (not made from road kill at all)

As a kid I called the back piece of chicken (with the tail attached) the turtle. The chicken tail looked like the turtle's head and the back looked like the body.
