Bacon is the "meat of life." Without bacon, life on earth as we know it could not exist?

We have a dish over here called a megan. You hear truckers order it all the time.

"I'll have a megan chips, please....."

*Translation below......















*Ham, egg and chips (fries).

Apropos can mean "by the way":

Apropos, can you lend me some money for the weekend?

I wonder whether such use is alive or popular in English language.

@oristarA,
No, apropos means pertinent, as in pertinent to the subject at hand.

A common expression here is "apropos of nothing......." You will then say something that has nothing to do with the subject at hand.

For instance, you and a friend may be talking about politics, and you suddenly think of something you want to say (maybe before you forget). You would say "Apropos of nothing, could you tell me where you get your dog groomed?"

@oristarA,

apropo is a kind of short hand for 'if a situation fits'. It does not mean 'by the way'.



This discussion may be apropo re whether we need to ask Dr. Snorg to testify

@ossobuco,
Never use the word innuendo, just in case.
