Poison Under Any Other Name Would Taste as Sweet

The makers of high fructose corn syrup are hoping to change their product’s image and get people consuming it again by changing the name from high fructose corn syrup to corn sugar. The runner-up names were corn nectar and corn sweetener.  Watch for the new name for the “quick-route-to-heart-disease-obesity-and-diabetes” on a label near you.  Hmm, I wonder if they would consider my name suggestion?
