In the whimsical food names piece, somebody's Autocorrect has changed German "im" (in "Würstchen im Schlafrock") to "I'm." And on the subject of food lingo, I've been noticing that San Francisco restaurant menus have taken to calling a dish "hen." Since nobody serves rooster (try and find one for coq au vin--not easy) this strikes me as merely a way of giving unglamorous, weeknight "chicken" a vaguely farm-to-table air.
