I love my native language... I think

As I was heading to work today, I stopped at my local supermarket to get the newspaper. They had signs advertising the weekly specials in the window, as virtually all markets do.

So far so good. I glanced at the signs as I walked in. The most prominent one was for:

Semi-boneless rib roast.

Maybe it's me, but I've never thought "boneless" was a term that lent itself to any modifiers. It's kind of an absolute.

So that was my head-scratcher for today.
