'favor of the month' for 'flavor of the month'

colloquially, the flavor of the month is whatever is momentarily fashionable or in favor. About 500 ghits:

They change depending on what the favor of the month is. The customer doesn’t know what to expect.

... I mean they are practically killing themselves over who is going to sign me first. J: Well it must be nice being the favor of the month.

Also when a breed becomes the “favor of the month” so to speak then unfortunely the “for money only” breeders can ruin the breed.

Indeed, I still think the VoneRR is very good and very competitive especially when you consider the cost of it. However it is not the favor of the month. … &topic=971

But I’m sure Howard and Bush will be attacked for whatever the favor of the month is.

There are many more – there are development methodologies that tend to be the favor of the month.

As one of those Hate-mongering, backwards, stick up the arse, whatever else the favor of the month to describe us is…
