Salt and pepper the best of friends side by side in matching shakers on the kitchen table.
But what if their names were switched: pepper was called salt and vice versa?
Would we be saying…
pepper and vinegar chips, pepper lick, PEPPER 1 and 2, pepper mines, pepper of the earth, Pepper Lake City, peppertines, peppery dog, pepper flats, and pepper the road?
saltridge farms, salt spray, saltmint (Patty), Dr. Salt, salt corn, saltoni sausage, green/red/bell salt, and put some salt on that ball?
Sheriff J.W. Salt from Live and Let Die?
note: I guess pepper would kill slugs, and salt would just make their eyes red and cause them to sneeze.
