Moe-ay and Shan-dan

When I was a teenager, Queen came out with a silly song called Killer Queen. There was one line, amongst many, that was melodic, but really didn’t make any sense to me.

She keeps uh moe-ay and shan-dan

In a pretty cabinet.

Let them eat cake she says

Just like Marie Antoinette.

It wasn’t until many years later that I learned what “moe-ay and shan-dan” really was…a very expensive champagne.

It wasn’t until today that I saw my first bottle of Moet & Chandon in the Duty Free store in Lima, Peru.
