Same. I always think of Edamame now as the green, soft bean, whereas I identify soybeans with the dry, salty snack. I know they're the same thing, but that's just what they've become to me.

One I can't stand is when people of non-indian or West Indian decent use the word Baigan... It's a ****ing eggplant.

No one brings a "raw veggie platter" to a dining event these days. They bring crudités, and that's fine with me. However, I do recall someone offering to bring a "crudo platter" once. I was quite disappointed when they brought raw veggies instead of raw seafood. Apparently, "Verde Crudo" is yet another name for a raw veggie platter.

But I do know that a sandwich is called a sandwich.

Ha! I hope they're saying crew-doe and not cruh-doe.

What is wrong with that? Smashed potatoes are much different than mashed potatoes. It's a much more accurate term for a dish that is not mashed potatoes.

I definitely agree. I serve braised short ribs over buttered "smashed" potatoes instead of "mashed" potatoes. I place boiled small red potatoes in the bottom of the serving bowl and smash them down with a fork before adding butter and serving the braised short ribs over them.

If you want to call your potatoes smashed then have at it. Obviously the term smashed potatoes doesn't annoy you but it annoys me and that was the OP's question.

"Say 'rich, chocolaty goodness.'" "Rich, chocolaty, goodness," said Oedipa. "Yes," said Mucho, and fell silent. "Well, what?" Oedipa asked... "I noticed it the other night... No matter who's talking, the different power spectra are the same, give or take a small percentage... Everybody who says the same words is the same person if the spectra are the same only they happen differently in time, you dig? But the time is arbitrary. You pick your zero point anywhere you want, that way you can shuffle each person's time line sideways till they all coincide. Then you'd have this big, God, maybe a couple hundred million chorus saying 'rich, chocolaty goodness' together, and it would all be the same voice."

Well, they certainly aren't "mashed potatoes", as they don't match the culinary definition of "mashed potatoes".
