muskox commented on the word poutine
Although poutine is a wonderful dish by itself, it can be used to augment the flaor and nutritional value of many other foods. For example, consider the following exchange:
Waiter: What would you like for dinner?
Hungry ninja: I'll start with the pork chops with applesauce and bannock.
Waiter: Would you like to *poutine* that order? (Ed. note - emphasis added)
Hungry ninja (reluctantly, inevitably): Yeah, sure.
Note that the hungry ninja has just placed an order for chops, applesauce, hearty griddle-fried cakes of bread, all smothered in gravy and cheese curds.
muskox commented on the word commando
1. Not wearing underpants.
2. A state of vestment that leaves certain extremeties exposed or unclothed (used as a modifier), as in:
"It's not so cold and windy today, so I'll forgo the balaclava and go face commando."
"Wading across this icy river makes me wish I hadn't decided to go foot commando."
Note that usage (1) is a special case of usage (2), with underpants the inferred item of missing clothing.
