in thread The breakfast of champions is...

Why am I guessing tht "chaminjon" is pronounced vaguely like the French word for mushroom, "champignon?".

Lord, PerlMonks does drag up oddments from my memory. I've got to get it re-indexed.

I would advise avoiding this particular Agaric mushroom ;-)

    It gets even better. Do you know what the swedish word for mushroom is? Believe it or not, swampyankee, but it's "Svamp". LOL

      Nope; my total Swedish vocabulary is limited to no more than "skål", which I mispronounce.
