Quandary Resolution 2493
corniche, putative, collop, chortle
"Non! Non! Non! Non! Non!" my Parisian cooking teacher remonstrated angrily while my classmates chortled at my impertinence, "a cornichon is not a small corniche, it is a cucumber pickle, and a cornish hen is not a chicken crossing a road by the sea, it is a collop of chicken", and then he added derisively, "your putative commitment to a career in haute cuisine is looking increasingly unserious, Monsieur le colonel du Kentucky."
