It's just a language thing - we got some real laughs in the UK one time

the bar tender at the pub absolutely lost it and ran back into the pub area and told everyone what my husband said and we heard these unbelievable roars of laughter coming out of the pub. But we've used a few words in the EU that had people looking at us rather strangely.
The recipe looks good and I think I am going to try it this weekend and the soup is probably going to be supper tonight. The name just caught me and I was in a weird mood at the time so I couldn't resist.
It's funny how we have all these words and how they translate or even come across a few generations later. My daughter had to read the The Secret Garden back in 3rd or 4th grade and she and some of her friends were confused over it after the opening because they took the a classic word and applied a modern meaning/slang to it and couldn't understand howthat book could have been permitted when they had removed several other books.
