This one I cannot claim to have been deranged enough to be able to imagine myself. It was reported in the form of flaminyon on a . There are lots of interesting mutations on that site that I am slowly working my way through to document for this forum. Don’t miss hit number four.
The justification would be something to do with barbequing (great word) and the attendant conflagrations.
I have taste for flaminyon, but I only have a burger budget.
A friend of mine wrote to me telling me of a fancy wedding she had been to. She said they spared no expense and had “flaming yon” at the wedding banquet.

I had my first flaming-yon in Chicago on Sullivan st.
I love Chicago
Roses are red
Violets are blue
You are like flaming yon
On the nicest menu
Flaming simblings include a flavoring of onion in flamonion, a cute roasting in flame mignon, and a flay mignon, a cute and tender skinning.
I RECOMMEND ESCARGO,AND POTATO SKINS FOR APPETIZERZ, AND FLAMONION FOR DINNER
Calling Japanese Riceballs as Donuts is about as sensible as calling a potato chip a flame mignon steak.
We ate flay mignon, rolls, condiments (they were listed in the menu), chicken, cotton candy, popcorn, desserts (jars of candy), and so much more.
Flaming yon. What a hoot. Classic.
