Date: Mon, 9 Oct 1995 12:33:16 -0400 From: Seth Sklarey 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 advertised their switch. I presume that snake oil from the old cowboy movies comes from the snake plant and not from snakes.
