While I teethed on it, and it *is* yellow and somewhat mustardish, it
sucks, particularly if you consider the variety of other options
available in these times (Nance's *rules*, man). So though it may not
make your language analogy page, let us say:
French's Mustard is to mustard what Wonder Bread is to bread.
It keeps selling, so someone in Northern Minnesota must like it.
