Material removed[edit]

I have severely redacted the following entry:

"The upper crust", a colloquialism referring to the wealthy or privileged classes. The usage is purported to derive from a Medieval analogy to pie or bread: the upper part of the crust which was less burnt and more flavorful was reserved for the elite members of a household while the workers and servants would be relegated the remainder. By transference, the term came to be applied to the recipients of the crust and by extension to the social elite.

because 1) it's unusual to have this level of detail in a disambig page, and 2) it's not sourced. If someone wants to create a separate article Upper crust (idiom) and use this material (sourced, please) that would be fine. Herostratus (talk) 02:34, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
