You could check New York's delis - "How about a nice MLT - a mastadon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich - when the mastadon is sliced real thin? Mmm yum yum yummm."

This reminds me of one of the short stories Laurence Durrell wrote about his time in the diplomatic corps (either Esprit de Corps or Stiff Upper Lip, don't have my library handy) where a dip goes irredeemably wrong when he discovers that ANYTHING can be made into a gourmet meal. It's a very funny comment on the diplomatic corps...


It's LAWRENCE Durrell, Meg, but I'm sure that was just a slip of the finger! Ever the copy-editor........
