Yep - the one that fell off the stick at the Dallas Swap Meet in 1998

RE: IndyCar - The Cartoon
ah, but does it cease to remain a corn dog at that point?

is a chair that can't support anyone simply a defective chair that retains its identity or a non-chair in need of better classification?

We need a chair classification chart.

The Swiss cheese I got when I was in the States would not have been recognized by any Swiss cheese maker. It looked (and tasted) more like Dutch cheese, such as Gouda. Most sorts of Swiss cheese don't have holes in them.

RE: IndyCar - The Cartoon
is there a cheese called "swiss cheese" in switzerland? meaning the name of the cheese rather than the nation of its production?

"american cheese" is a type of (imitation) cheese, even in america. i'm told that "canadian bacon" is not a term used in canada, however.

Nope.

And if we're talking about strange use of countries in food name, there are also:
French fries (which French people consider to originate from Belgium)
French toast (confused me a lot when I first had it, as I expected toasted baguette)
Swiss roll
German chocolate cake (according to Wikipedia it was invented by a guy called German)

We get English bacon from our local Butcher. It's just back bacon, but they don't normally have back bacon here.

It was a happy day when they started selling it.

Not forgetting Russian salad and English muffins.

errrr, a Muffin.
OK, I see a problem, what you call a muffin we call a cupcake. A similar situation to Jam, Jelly and Jello.

and Chips in the US are Crisps in the UK.

UK chips would probably be called English style Fries or something like that.

Eggplant (Aubergine) and Zuchini (Courgette) are others I can think of.

do you have another term for our cupcakes, or do they get lumped in under the same term?

Well thinking about it, the influence of the American coffee shops and all, means that a Blueberry muffin, for example, would be a cupcake style cake but without the frosting etc. More savoury. There is a lot of that going on. Globalisation.

There's loads of different names for things, but the interesting ones are where the same name means different things. Can't think of any more food ones.

Only an Aussie could say such a thing.

Another example is all the fast food joints that describe chips as "fries" even though their customers order chips.

Oh, and those undertakers who call themselves "funeral directors".

What would be called a Scone in the UK is called a biscuit here, people tend to eat them with soup. Cream tea would be sold in some places, but it would be marketed as an English Cream Tea. (Scone with Butter, Cream & Jam...and tea obviously)

I must admit, rocket is a way cooler name for this than arugula. Too bad spinach isn't speedboat or time machine instead.

Submit those names to Mrs. Obama for her new campaign to rename veggies with cool names so kids will want to eat them. I don't know if she's been successful, but she loves to be on the Disney Channel telling kids what to eat.

I don't see kids eating veggies just because some adults gave them "cool" names, but good luck to her.

Yes,she's apparently doing that and no, it has much chance of success as an incredibly unsuccessful thing.
