Bologna” … “baloney” … “boloney” … what nonsense (secondary definition)!

Many foodstuffs are named for geography, as this American mash of beef, pork, veal — or all of the above — and direct descendant of the Italian mortadella (yikes! — I spy the root for “death” in it) from its namesake city in Italy dating to the Bronze Age.

But comic Jim Gaffigan says it best.  Only 90 more seconds. Enjoy!
