Does "GRAS" stand for "Generally Recognized As Safe"?

*********************
Donald J. Trump 1h:
Have a GREAT “MAGA-GRAS” Rally today on our wonderful Long Island. Cut Taxes, Stop Crime, VOTE FOR TRUMP. Our City and State are a MESS. What do you have to lose? Thank you!!!

@oristarA,
Yes, but not in this context.

MAGA is Make America Great Again. Who knows what the GRAS stands for.

@roger,
It's an attempt to play on the name of the holiday Mardi Gras. It's neither clever nor effective.

@hightor,
I agree with Hightor. It is a play on words with Mardi Gras.

I think it's mildly clever.

I'm unsure what a statement like that could be effective at in the first place, so its lack of effectiveness seems to be no big deal.

@oralloy,
Let me explain it to you:

Mardi Gras means "Fat Tuesday".

MAGA Gras means "Fat MAGA" — you actually think that's "mildly clever"?

It would be considered effective if everyone started referring to his rallies that way. I think most people have better taste. A large proportion of MAGAtards are overweight, though, so it might appeal to them.

He meant it as a reference to the party/celebration.

Yes. Mildly cleaver. Not the greatest slogan of all time, but certainly not terrible.

Farmerman's version was mildly cleaver too.

What's the big deal?

@oralloy,
Because the deaths of over 225,000 Americans due to COVID-19 isn't something to celebrate.

@oristarA,
It's an example of a catchphrase created by people willing to say or do anything to manipulate people who like catchphrases.

To cleave these two instances together is to tear apart any contention about never making an error or not being an ax.

Let's see you point out an error in my posts. Or prove that I am an ax.

For the record, I'm a human being not a chopping tool.

@knaivete,
Ah. I made a spelling error. I make lots of those.

My contentions regarding paucity of errors are related to factual maters.

You've stated previously that you never make factual errors and now you admit to a paucity of errors. One way or the other you have made a factual error.

Nonsense. Let's see a quote of me saying that.

That is incorrect. I made a spelling/grammar type of error.
