I wasn't talking about pork loins from Sam's Club, but fried pork-like stuff sold on the street corner as a fried pork sandwich...similar to the dog-like substance found in hot dogs. - Resnullius

"Oh, that's very different! Nevermind!" - Emily Litella (Gilda Radner)

"Radner's character peered through her bifocals and read a prepared letter addressing some public issue, becoming increasingly agitated as her statement progressed, only to discover in the middle of her report that she had gotten the theme of her story wrong. A typical example:

"What is all this fuss I hear about the Supreme Court decision on a "Deaf" penalty. It's terrible! Deaf people have enough problems as it is" When the on-air reporter interrupted to point out her error (Death vs. deaf), she would crinkle her nose, usually say, "Oh, that's very different...", and then humbly say to the audience "Never Mind!" "
