I simply cannot wrap my mind around the fact that every night children in this country go to bed hungry, and yet we have filet mignon Milk Bones. "Made with real filet mignon!"
Don't get me wrong, I love animals, and had I a dog, I might even buy them. It's just...filet mignon!
And typing those words reminds me of a mnemonic I learned from a copy editor at my first journalism job. To help us remember that, when referring to beef, "filet" had one "l," and when referring to fish, "fillet" had two , she would remind us "One if by land, two if by sea."
