Sentence: The best part of a yoghurt is the wrapperscraps. Licking the lid might be something you wouldn't do at the Queen's table, but we all do it anyway. Besides, if I dined with the Queen, I'd be a bit disappointed if she only dished up yoghurt for us to eat. I'd at least expect something I'd struggle to pronounce, like some obscure cheese or rare cabbage or something.

Etymology: Wrapper - packaging or cover. Scraps - left over morsels.
