Higher-class chickens

My mom can say funny things without meaning to, it's just the way she is. She called me this morning for the first of our many chats today, and right in the middle of talking about work she blurted out, "I went to the store yesterday and bought ten cornish hens." I said that was interesting, and asked her why cornish hens? And why ten? She replied, "Because they were on sale for $3.99 a pound, and you can freeze them and they'll still be good. Cornish hens are like small chickens but higher class, so they're pretty good."
