“I’ll have the mouse, please."/"That’s mousse, sir.”

"Mousse” shouldn’t be confused with “mouse” or “moose,” but there are jokes.


Wikipedia: Mousse
A mousse (/ˈmuːs/; French: [mus]; “foam") is a soft prepared food that incorporates air bubbles to give it a light and airy texture. It can range from light and fluffy to creamy and thick, depending on preparation techniques. A mousse may be sweet or savory.

Sweet mousses are typically made with whipped egg whites, whipped cream, or both, and flavored with one or more of chocolate, coffee, caramel, puréed fruits, or various herbs and spices, such as mint or vanilla.[4] In the case of some chocolate mousses, egg yolks are often stirred into melted chocolate to give the final product a richer mouthfeel.
