The Pope's Nose and other creative names

I was cleaning a turkey at work today and thoiught of all of the interesting names that have been used to describe food.
When I first learned to bake, the lady who helped train me used to make mini cinamon rolls out of leftover pie crust and she called them Nun's Farts......

Pope's nose = also the Bishop's Hat and the last part over the fence.

I just about fell out of my chair laughing at this one. My Dad called them that too! I probably shouldn't post why he described them that way.

I always thought calf testicles had some rather creative names assigned to them.

"Pope's Nose" reminded me of an eggplant that we had grown one year. We called it "The Schnoz".
