The discussion of "dish" (which I've never heard either, but then in South
Texas we lived in a different world) reminded me of a question my mother
asked recently when she had to provide a "stool sample" to the doctor:
"Why stool?" Because the toilet is like a sort of stool one sits on? I
assume that this term is not regionally limited.
