Subject: RE: BS: the people who make the corned beef
The very cheapest cuts used by the cattlefolks were OP's. The standing joke was that you went to a "feed" at your neighbors to see how your beef tasted.

The young lady from the city paper went out searching for the best cut of beef. So she asked an old cowboy, figuring that he, if anyone, would know.

"Walp," he said, turning his chaw over in his cheek, "I reckon that would would tongue. Yup, it's all meat and no fat, tender, and don't got no bones. Yup, tongue'd be it."

"YEW!" she exclaimed. "I'd never eat anything that had been in a cow's mouth."

"'Spect you've never et no egg," the old fella replied.
