Dear Dr. Boli: I just bought some “chicken tenders” in the meat department of the Foodland, and I was wondering: What part of the chicken is the “tender”?—Sincerely, A Curious Shopper.
Dear Sir or Madam: The chicken tender is not part of the chicken: it is the person who takes care of the chickens, as of course its name implies. Dr. Boli does not ordinarily attempt to dictate in matters of taste, but he would return that meat if he were in your position and still had the receipt.
