I never heard that, but 'Rosbif' (= roast beef) is sometimes
used. I don't really know why. Perhaps because of the manner of
cooking the meat in Britain ? Perhaps one 'lent for one
returned' (1) in connection with 'froggies' as the Frenchies are
(1) French idiom literally translated ("un prêté pour un rendu")

My English is poor, too ! The main thing is to exchange.
Relation with OKOM? OKOM is international!
