Complexities of English Lingo

Just last week I thought that I'd have a mini BBQ. A friend was coming over, and I found a couple small steaks in the deep freeze, so I thought that it was a good time to have them! So, with my friend on the way, I throw these steaks onto the BBQ, and everything seems to be going fine, until I flipped them. It seemed like the steaks were unravelling. Thinking this was odd, I poked at it. The longer it was cooking and the more I prodded, it eventually peeled apart into a couple very thin peices. Now being very curious, I looked again at the wrapper... "minute steak". I had read mi-nute (as in small), not minute (as in 60 sec).

So, I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but people still love me. Right??? :)
