Somebody once told me about this pun. What is it, and what's the original formula?
PS: A preliminary web search only finds food blogs, and I don't know at the moment how to refine the search. Grazie mille.
PS: I was told bye bye in a chat room by an Italian over half a decade ago with a pun in the Italian equivalent of "salami and cheese", that was explained as a rhyme on a common greeting. I'm sure about the salami, but not the cheese. I don't know why I hadn't made the connection to Arabic "salamu", indeed it seems plausible, but there were no clues about cultural background; the guy identified chiefly Italian in my mind, at least with regards to cuisine --also taught me a genuine carbonara receipe without creme. Looking up "cheese" now, cacio for ciao seems more likely than formaggio.
I thought both phrases were common.
