I took my aunt to another barbecue place in town.  One of the menu items read:

Burnt End Combo:  Beef, Pork and Ribs

She and I both looked at the menu and said, “what kind of burnt end is ribs?”  I thought all burnt ends were made from rib meat, but maybe this was some new kind I’d never heard of.  We asked the waitress what they were, and she looked stunned.  “The kind with bones?” she replied.  We ordered the burnt end combo, expecting a new culinary experience.

Well, lo and behold!  The rib burnt ends were — ribs.  I guess if the menu had said “Burnt end combo:  beef and pork, with ribs” the waitress wouldn’t have looked like she thought she was talking with idiots.
