Comedy of Errors # 5

I was at the deli counter of the grocery store today, waiting for my number to be called.  While  waiting, I remembered an embarrassing thing I said years ago at another deli counter.  I had been waiting to be helped then too and, while I waited, I read the labels on the different deli meats.  I saw one that said Red Sod Turkey Breast.  I was intrigued - what kind of turkey breast was it?  Had the turkeys been fed red grass?  Russian grass?  Boston grass?  The deli clerk finally called my number and I asked, "What's that Red Sod turkey breast?  I've never seen it before."  The woman was really polite and said, "Um . . . that's short for "reduced sodium".  Talk about RED!!
