n.— «Harding took the roasted crown of chicken (a new phrase to me) for two, because the “for two” was in inverted commas which meant, I explained, “for two if you’re a woman, a child or a vegetarian”, and got most of a chicken, bar the legs, on a big wooden board. Very sweet, very relaxed meat—corking I thought.» —“The Horseshoe” by Giles Coren Times (London, England) July 29, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
