I hear "Baloney" from time to time, but have not heard "baloney sauce"

since I was a camp counselor in the early 60s (except as a kind of in

family joke since my wife counseled at the same camp).

Shank's mare was used occasionally by my father, now long deceased, but

somehow he conveyed that he recognized it as an archaic usage even then.
