ROSSINANTE - what Gioachino was called until he wrote the William Tell Overture and became famous
May - that's basically the same principle as yours !

ROSINANTE - what the poker game did when the stakes went up

ROSINANCE - how a violin bow makes such a luscious, rich, beautiful sound

Ha! Those damn tourne potatoes and Escoffier. Years ago at JW I got in trouble for turning Boccoli Polonaise into broccoli alla May. Ah, to be a Rosinante or a Rossini....
