"'Zerts are what I call desserts. Tre-tres are entrees. I call sandwiches sammies, sandoozles, or Adam Sandlers. Air conditioners are cool blasterz with a “z.” I don't know where that came from. I call cakes big ole' cookies. I call noodles long-ass rice. Fried chicken is fry-fry chicky-chick. Chicken parm is chicky-chicky parm-parm. Chicken cacciatore… chicky catch. I call eggs pre-birds… or future birds. Root beer is super water. Tortillas are bean blankies. And I call forks food rakes."
