whereas if you get the cheap brands, you would be very lucky if there were 43 tomatoes in a bottle. the one that puzzled me was the one and a half glasses of milk in a bar of chocolate. How big were the glasses, one wondered.

When you become an adult and realise that all these things are a load of crap, its a bit of a weight lifted.

I think there should be, when you get to 21, a day of disabuse - when they tell you the truth. It would give you a clean start.

Autolycus says, "A song has a lyric. That's the rule; ...one song, one lyric. It has words; it doesn't have lyrics. On the other hand, a musical has lyrics, by.....whoever. A song doesn't. NALOPKT {Not A Lot Of People Know That]"

Ivor, I understand and appreciate your pedantry, but in this case I think that it's one of those instances where a word has been misused for so long that it becomes acceptable because of its common usage. According to the Merriam-Webster site (and several other dictionary sites I've looked at):

lyr·ic
Pronunciation: 'lir-ik
Function: noun
1 : a lyric composition; specifically : a lyric poem
2 : the words of a song -- often used in plural

...so either "lyric" or "lyrics" is a proper word for 21st-century pedants to use when referring to the words of a single song.

About "redd up", Pittsburgh and Stevenson: Here's a blurb from The Word Detective that might explain the connection:

"Dear Word Detective: What is the origin of the phrase "redd up?" I recently asked my colleagues to help "redd up" the lounge and they acted like I was speaking a foreign language. I remember my grandmother telling me to "redd up" my room, but I can't find any information on the origin of the phrase. Can you help? -- Dunlap, via the internet.

Well, I don't wish to cast aspersions upon your colleagues, but my guess is that they knew exactly what you meant and were just pretending not to understand. My research assistant frequently pulls the same ruse on me. When I call to her, she will hide behind a tree and stand very still, pretending not to hear me. Granted, my assistant is a border collie named Brownie, but I think the operative principle is pretty much the same.

While you don't mention exactly where you grew up, if your grandmother routinely told you to "redd up" your room, there's a statistical probability that either you were living in, or your grandmother was from, Pennsylvania. "Redd up," meaning "to clear or clean up," arrived in America with immigrants from Scotland and northern England, and while Scots settled all over the eastern US, the phrase seems to be most commonly heard today, for some reason, in Pennsylvania.

The root of "redd" (which by itself means "to clear or clean") seems to be a combination of the Middle English and Scots dialectical word "redden" (meaning "to free or clear an area") with another Middle English word, "reden," meaning "to rescue or free from." The same tangle of roots gave us the word "rid," and is closely related to the word "ready." And none of this, by the way, has anything to do with the color "red."

While the columnist seems to think that the phrase is common throughout Pennsylvania, I have to say as a lifelong resident of the Philadelphia area that I have never heard it used around here. Perhaps the immigrants from Scotland didn't settle in great numbers here (going west to Pittsburgh instead), or if they did they were assimilated into the blend of cultures of this international port city and its surroundings. While there are still sections of Philly that are populated primarily of people of distinctive cultures (Italian, Chinese, Irish, etc.), I don't know of any that's made up of Scots or Scots-Americans.

Upon my Heinz pickle pin (which they'll give you for free at the museum if you ask) I spent many years being baffled by the phrase "redd up" until I found it used in the same manner in Robert Louis Stevenson's KIDNAPPED.

Why this Scottish locution continues in use in Pittsburgh is beyond me. Did the Scots-Irish who came north to work in the mills bring it with them? If so, why is it unknown in the South?

I asked a friend about Salad Cream, and she said, "Don't you know? You can get it in the British section at Fairway." I hied myself to Broadway and 73rd, and there it was. Didn't buy any, but it seems to be sort of a mayo with mustard.

Hey Ziz......The Greater Pittsburgh vocabulary and syntax extends a good ways out, especially towards the Ohio River where you'll find many if those expressions like "redd up" in common usage.......places like Steubenville and parts of eastern Ohio.

My Dad was a railroader running between Pittsburgh and Columbus and I grew up in eastern Ohio and we used to talk this stuff a lot.

Hey, JJ!

Btw, "redd up" means to clean up; tidy up {I'm guessing it's from "get ready" [for visitors]. It is said to be "Pittsburghese" {wors and phrases used in the Greater Pittsburgh region; While I know what it means, I have never used it, and I have never heard anybody use it {which doesn't necessarily mean that it's more likely to be used by certain races/ethnicities more than others. But it does make me wonder if that's the case.

For instance, the word "yunz" is supposed to be pure delux Pittsburguese, in my experience, Black Pittsburghers appear to most often use "ya'll {sp?} than "younz" in our informal conversations, or when we are purposely speaking or writing in "Ebonese" as I did in my 18 Aug 07 - 12:26 AM post to this thread.

And that's just one example of possible racial/ethnic differences in colloquial expressions in this Heinz 57 region.

Salad Cream, as the name might suggest, is a cream that one could, if one wished, pour over,stir in, or otherwise add to, a salad, in order to enhance the flavour thereof, to the increased gastronomic enjoyment of the partaker.It is probably unknown by that nomenclature in The Americas, where it is, in all probability, referred to , incorrectly, as Mayonnaise, although, to be fair, Mayonnaise IS one of the major constituents of the prandial delight in question. It would seem that Mr Heinz,however, in his appreciation of English culinary and comestible preferences, was one shrewd cookie .

If you are ever in Pittsburgh, be sure to visit the Senator John Heinz Pittsburgh Regional History Center and Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum, which may be the longest title of any institution anywhere.

Besides learning a lot about George Washington, immigrants and labor, you can also sit in a section of the museum dedicated to (duh!) the H. J. Heinz Company and watch 22 minutes of international commercials, some of which are very funny and some of which are very WTF? When last there, I marveled at the internationality of the hot dog. Thailand? South Korea?

My favorite -- the British commercial about little Margaret and her dream of growing up to become prime minister. And what, my British friends, is Salad Cream?

Just to redd up in here (Azizi knows what I mean) the true Pittsburgh dialect is not very close to Spaw's rendition of it.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania can most easily be distinguished from others as the other Pittsburghs, with or without the "H," might be filled with "jackoffs." In the real Pittsburgh they are known as "Jagovs." For instance:


Kansas---You're acting like a jackoff. Why doncha' leave?

Pennsylvania---Beat it ya' fockin' Jagov b'for I kick yer ass up 'tween yer shoulder blades an ya' gotta' take yer fockin' hat off to shit.

Here's one way that Heinz being based in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania region helps make that city someplace special:

URL: http://www.heinz.org/

"Mission:
To help the Pittsburgh region thrive economically, ecologically, educationally, and culturally while advancing the state of knowledge and practice in the fields in which it works.

Background:
Formed from the Howard Heinz Endowment, established in 1941, and the Vira I. Heinz Endowment, which was founded in 1986, the Heinz Endowments is among the largest independent philanthropic organizations in the United States, awarding approximately $60 million in grants to nonprofits each year. The endowments grantmaking focus is on arts and culture; children, youth, and families; education; the environment; and the innovation economy.

Outstanding Web Features:
The endowments' recently relaunched Web site offers a searchable resource library featuring publications, reports, grant application guidelines, and the current and past issues of h, the foundation's quarterly magazine. The site also features an animated timeline of the endowments' history."

-snip-

Disclaimer: From 1997-2002, my very small non-profit arts organization received competitive programming grants from the Multicultural Arts Foundation, which was jointly founded by The Pittsburgh Foundation and the Howard Heinz Foundation. In 2005,
I also received a creative arts grant as an individual working with another small Pittsbugh, PA non-profit organization.

I am very grateful for the support that I have received from the Howard Heinz Foundation.

Stay cool, Azizi!

Yup, commercials overseas are definitely different, from everything I've heard and read (never having been overseas myself!). I vaguely remember the slogan "beanz meanz Heinz" going by in my childhood in the 1960s, so perhaps they tried it out here as well as in the UK but it only caught on in the UK.

Riginslinger wonders why the "57 varieties" slogan wasn't capitalized on by Republicans in the 2004 Presidential race against John Kerry, husband of "that Heinz woman" (Teresa Heinz Kerry, widow of H. John Heinz III). I'm sure that that would have violated a copyright on the company's phrase, and that the ensuing legal proceedings and bad publicity against the Republican party would have done them far more harm than whatever small benefit such a slogan might have made to their campaign.

Although the Heinz company was founded near Pittsburgh and has its corporate headquarters there still, John Heinz (heir to the company fortune) had some ties to the Philadelphia area. He was one of Pennsylvania's US Senators from 1977 until his death in 1991, and tragically he died in this neck of the woods. Heinz's small Piper airplane was having landing-gear problems, and the helicopter that was flown out to take a look flew too close and collided with the Piper over an elementary school in Lower Merion. All souls on the airplane and helicopter were killed, along with two little girls in the schoolyard. It was a very shocking and sad day here.

After Heinz's death, a local wildlife refuge was renamed for him, reflecting his dedication to environmental issues. The John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum is 1200 acres of freshwater tidal marsh, the largest in Pennsylvania.

Correction: The lyrics as sung by Carly Simon are "Anticipation, anticipation is makin' me late, it's keepin' me waitin'" (but I don't know if the words were written that way by Simon). Actually, "it's" might not be right either; on the recording, all that's pronounced in the first chorus is an "s" sound, so I don't know if that is an "is", an "it's" or an " 's ".

More about "catsup", according to the Global Gourmet's Culinary Sleuth:

"When Heinz introduced commercial ketchup to American kitchens it became so popular that other manufacturers rushed to catch-up to the ketchup craze. Soon there were Ketchup, Catsup, Catchup, Katsup, Catsip, Cotsup, Kotchup, Kitsip, Catsoup, Katshoup, Katsock, Cackchop, Cornchop, Cotpock, Kotpock, Kutpuck, Kutchpuck and Cutchpuck. All were tomato based and bottled and vied to become a household word. Only 3 major brands remained to steal the spotlight...Heinz Ketchup, Del Monte Catsup, and Hunts, who could not decide on a spelling and bottled under the names Hunts Catsup (east of the Mississippi), Hunts Ketchup (west of the Mississippi), and Hunts Tomato Cornchops (in Iowa only). In the 1980's ketchup was declared a vegetable by the government for school lunch menus. Suddenly Del Monte's Catsup, because of its spelling, was not on the approved list. Shortly afterward Del Monte changed the product's name to Del Monte Ketchup. So ketchup it is."

"What are first line or so"??? Wow, Azizi, I guess you have been into wine... ;^)

Anyway, the song is "Anticipation", written by Carly Simon and originally recorded by her in 1971 (title track of the album, released November 1971). The "first line or so" used for the commercial was the chorus: "Anticipation, anticipation is making me late, it's keeping me waiting" (pronounced "way-yay-yay-yay-yayyy-ting"). That particular recording was used for the commercial, was it not?

By the way, according to the Heinz website, the company prefers the spelling "ketchup".

At a charity tag sale here in Maine I met a strange young man who was selling Bread and Butter pickles. I hadn't had home-made in years so I bought two jars and got chatting with him. His grandfather has supplied 100% of the cucumbers used in Heinz pickles at some point in ancient history. They had also packed a variety of them for Heinz. His Bread and Butter pickles were the original Heinz recipe. Very nice, actually.

I went back the following year but he was not there. A disappointment.

There's no "H" in Pittsburg, Kansas, however. It's the only way you can tell 'em apart.

Just wanting to make sure that folks take note of the fact that the headquarters of Heinz is based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the home of Mudcatters LadyJean and Azizi (and other Mudcatters?}

No wonder Pittsburgh is so special. We even got that pawanshop song, as discussed in this Mudcat thread thread.cfm?threadid=1018&messages=14
Pawnshop in Pittsburg

-snip-

But, as JJ noted in that thread,
Make sure to put that "h" at the end of Pittsburgh!

In fact, at some dinners during the 2004 election run-up, the Republicans put special GWB labels over the labels on the ketchup bottles so diners wouldn't see the name of Kerry's wife and be offended.

Political correctness, GOP style....

I'm still surprised that the Republicans didn't hit on the idea of the "57 varieties of John Kerry" in the 2004 campaign, given the fact that he was married to that Heinz woman.

"That came out in 1957 when they commemorated Aston Villa winning the FA Cup :-)"

I've got a feeling about this year Villan : )

Claret and Blue is the colour for you . . .

Never existed in living memory. Heinz had more than 60 varieties by 1892.

The 57 was an idea inspired by a New York firm which Mr Heinz noticed advertised "21 Styles of Shoe", he thought up his own variation on the theme.

Precis of info in Tom Burnham's Dictionary of Misinformation, (c)1975
