Langue sauce piquante

Thanks to Transblawg and Language Hat for mentioning Langue sauce piquante, a very promising new blog written (in French! Hurrah!) by Le Monde‘s proofreaders. They talk about language, expressions, words, in fact, everything I like. Their most recent entry on sushi tells us that this word used to mean the liquid used to pickle convicts’ heads, that were then shown to the public.
