  • "In Puerto Rico there was a piropia, a catcall to attractive women, that went Tanto carne, y yo comiendo bacalao (so much meat, and I'm just eating salt cod). Today meat is cheaper than salt cod, but the expression, like piropias themselves, persists."

    —Mark Kurlansky, Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World (New York: Penguin, 1997), 91
