Better Names 2

A couple of weeks ago, there was a post about things with mal-descriptive names followed by suggested (and slightly more accurate) ones.  The list is endless.  At the very least, it continues here:

Name Is:                                 Name Should Be:

Fruit Cake                              “Fruit” Cake
I don’t know if you realize this, but that’s not fruit in there.

Tooth Brush                           Teeth Brush
I brush more than one tooth at time.  That’s what you’re supposed to do, right?

Hot Dog                                  Mystery Tube
Hot?  Sure.  Dog?  Depends, where did you buy it?

Casserole                               Pan-amalgamate
First of all, it sounds like a “roll”.  And I’ve never eaten one in roll form.  I googled “Cass.”  That didn’t help explain it either.  (Actually, casserole is derived from the French word casse, which means “saucepan”… still doesn’t help.)

Glasses                                   Plastics
Glass glasses lenses are becoming sort of a novelty.  Plus, they can charge you more for super plastic.  Might as well call it what it is.

Restroom                                Business Room
Does anyone really find rest in the rest room?  I certainly don’t find it relaxing.  And neither the smell of ammonia nor bleach put me to sleep.
