What is corned beef?

Updated on

Ordering sandwich at the deli:
Me: โ€œWhat is corned beef?โ€
Deli-meister: โ€œItโ€™s a beef that has been cured.”
Me: โ€œCured?!โ€
Deli-meister: โ€œYes, for example, todayโ€™s beef was suffering from chicken-pox. After 2 weeks of rest, it is now cured. We also have a special pastrami that was suffering from a broken leg. It should be fully recovered and ready by tomorrow.โ€
Me: โ€œHmmโ€ฆโ€
Deli-meister: โ€œNext week we have a very special pastrami that should be fully recovered from malaria.โ€
Me: โ€œI think Iโ€™ll have the salad.โ€  ๐Ÿ‘
