Truffle Truffle, Buffalo Buffalo

I love truffles, but I hate truffles.

My point? What's up with chocolate truffles' being called "truffles" when the mushroom fungus truffle is called a truffle? And they are...completely different things.

Another example, courtesy of loojie, is the sentence Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo. Now THAT is loco, no?

P.S.: And, just to clarify, my first "truffles" = the fungus, and my second "truffles" = the chocolate.

I want to bang my head against a wall after reading that Buffalo thing.

I'm chocolate truffles personally. But, that's just me :)
