Beef Pizzies? (New Info) Ohhhh, Beef Pizzles!
OK, so I went over to the new Asian Market over on Central and McNutt this morning to mosey around a little. In the meat case I spied these mysterious items named "Beef Pizzies." I like to play imaginary scenarios for how things happened inside my tiny mind. This is what I came up with for how these got named.
The Asian Market's butcher, who does not have a complete grasp of the English language, is printing out the labels for the days meat selection. Not knowing the English word for this particularly unmentionable part of the bovine anatomy, he inquires (in delicate as possible terms) of his 8 year old daughter (who has been raised in the US of A) as to what the proper terminology is. Blushing, the young lass mutters "pizzies, Daddy," conjuring up the current playground parlance of her elementary school. Onto the label it goes and into the meat case.
It is entirely possible that "pizzies" are not the naughty bits that I am supposing them to be, it could be some other odd bit or end of beef. But it certainly appears that some unhappy bulls out there are missing their "special purposes."
New information has been received thanks to most excellent commentators. The word is Pizzles. They really are wieners.
