It doesn't take much.

I get a good deal of amusement out of the term "amuse bouche." I had never heard of it until a challenge early this year on 'Top Chef' and I certainly had no idea that this is how it was spelt, until I read it on Yelp (Yeah, Yelp! Check out the new Social Media feature at the right, y'all). It literally means "mouth amuser" and is technically supposed to be precisely one bite. How can you not love something so delightfully, yet accurately, titled?
