Pleonasms are my absolute favorite word conundrum. The "bilingual tautology" is probably the most prevalent in food, like with naan bread or queso cheese. I would just remind everyone to not be so harsh when you hear these things, it is just culture at large growing more comfortable with unfamiliar influences. I find it kind of endearing. #my2cents

Right, Adriel. I'd submit that "pizza pie" was the same kind of thing, back in the day when it was still a novelty in flyover country.

That's a good one! Like "ramen noodle".
