I looked it up for Toy Story 2. Then I had to know. "Eating Shomos!"

We have them here in Canadia too. So they're at least a North American thing.

Having by circular baked bread topped with tomato paste and cheese of some sort. I believe the heathen Romans call it "Pizza" after their god, Pizzus.

Twas preposterous in bearing but strangely tasty.

Well, I just learned something. And it wasn't just how to correct your terrible formatting.

I didn't know what a hendiadys was either. Now I do, and now I know that this thread title is not one, since it is a noun-conjunction-adjective and this thread title is adjective-conjunction-adjective.

What are you talking about? 'Strange' clearly doubles here as a noun. It's a type of unusual delicacy. Though, from what I read it doesn't seem to be limited to just noun plus adjective, so he's still right either way. Try and understand.

The only definition I know of 'strange' as a noun is when you are talking about quarks. I don't see how strange doubles as a now, I fail in understanding that.
I misunderstood the other part though. It is the conjunction of two words that replaces the use of an adjective and noun. The two words don't have to be an adjective and noun as I originally said though.

Yeah okay, I was making things up about strange being a noun. It was a case of trying to be stupid and funny, realising it was just stupid, and then not bothering to do anything about it. Also, the phrase 'Try and understand' was just another example of a Hendiadys.

Strange can be a noun: "I'm gonna go out and get me some strange".

And then I punched him BAM! right in the strange.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.
