FILLETS: CONTAINS BONES AND SKIN

My head still hurts, a bit.
Word To Use Today: fillet. This word means - well, it means lots of things, but as far as fish is concerned it describes a portion that's been boned.*
Word To Use Today: The word fillet comes from the Old French filet, from fil, thread, from the Latin fīlum.
*I realise to my delight that the word boned is a contranym, that is, a word that means both itself and its own opposite. A boned fish had had the bones taken out, but a boned corset has had bones put in.
Possibly the writer of that notice was wearing a corset...
...mind you, the nice person behind the fish counter was quite generously built, so I doubt it was him.
