Subject: Ah'm is/rapeseed/canola oil

Some Afro-American males I know who originally came from Georgia say

"Ah'm is" in response to a question, meaning "I am," or "Yes, I am."

These same people also say "Ah'm fisson (fixin')to (do something) for

I am about to do something.


The politically correct term, euphemism or alternative name for rapeseed

oil is canola oil. Recently, it was discovered that most movie theaters

(or is it theatres where you came from) sold popcorn made with highly

saturated (in fat) coconut oil, which is extremely fattening and bad for you.

The sensitive ones switched to canola oil which is polyunsaturated and


their switch.

I presume that snake oil from the old cowboy movies comes from the snake

plant and

not from snakes.
