Goto next slide#3: Desert/Dessert

Question:

If you receive an appropriate punishment, did you get your just deserts or just desserts?

Answer:

just deserts

How to Remember It:

This word is unrelated to deserts of the sand and cactus kind, and it isn't about the desserts that provide a sweet finish to a meal.

Instead, this deserts comes from the same word that gave us deserve. (Oddly, it's pronounced like desserts.)
