tongue: A variety of meat, rarely served because it clearly crosses the line between a cut of beef and a piece of dead cow.

yogurt: Semi-solid dairy product made from partially evaporated and fermented milk. Yogurt is one of only three foods that taste exactly the same as they sound. The other two are goulash and squid.

And are these your own opinions, Porridge Heretic? Or are you merely passing them on? ;-)

P.S. My porridge-hating german teacher once told me that the German word for porridge is "Hafeschleim", which literally translated means "oat-phlegm". She was being disingenuous in fact, Hafeschleim is gruel, but she apparently saw no distinction.
