What's in a Name? (Guest Post: Charles Gilbert and Erica Johnson!)

You may be more familiar with the marketing name, Canola Oil. 

Now I know what you're thinking, but the name change was not due to feminist fryers. Instead, the real problem was that the original rapeseed oil was so toxic that the FDA banned it for human consumption in 1956.

"He-Man" (Guest Posting: Charles Gilbert and Erica Johnson!)

Dad (to mom): Remember that time your son got me that me that random faded tee-shirt ornament?"
Mom: He's your son too!
Dad: Not after that. A tee-shirt ornament? I mean, really. There had to have been a better alternative. Like a lump of coal or a "World's Best Dad" mug.
