Funny Name: Do I Want to Know? Edition

Just tell me this recipe title from The Farmers' Almanac Cook Book (ed. Thea Wheelwright, 1969) doesn't sound like the nickname of a guy you ran into during your spring break/ semester abroad.

Prepare to meet the Texas Tongue! You kind of wanted to know how he got that nickname and you kind of didn't.


  1. Thanks to the "mystery meal" episode of Ramona, Ramona Quimby was obviously not from Texas. Is it sad that that show is the first thing I think of when I hear people talking about eating tongue?

    1. I didn't even know there was a show. I only remember the books.

      I always think of mom when I see tongue on a menu since she talked about Grandma making it.
