Me: So, if we get this new "au gratin pan," is there room in the kitchen to store it?
Her: I'll hang it up in the kitchen on the wall, I already have a place in mind for it.
Me: Oh, I get it, it's a big trophy item, kind of a way of saying to people without au gratin pans: "Ha! In your face, losers!"
Her: You know what's funny about that?
Me: That it's true?
