You're not crazy. I remember the same.
Which is why I never understood the whole mincemeat pie thing.
When I was a juvenile delinquent for a short time...or at least a juvenile delinquent wannabe, I actually remember telling a kid "I'm going to make mincemeat out of you."
He looked at me funny and then went home. I guess he didn't like mincemeat either. And that was pretty much the end of that period in my life.
