Hm. There’s a GQ in here. But it’s also sort of an IMHO poll. But it’s really mundane and pointless, so I’m putting it here.
Many of us – maybe even most of us – have enjoyed eating slimeheads and Patagonian toothfish. Of course, we don’t call them that. No, we call them “orange roughy” and “Chilean sea bass”. What other things do we eat that have “official” names that the Marketing types think will put us off, so they get “glamour” names so we’ll eat them? Escargots comes to mind, even though everyone knows they’re snails. The name doesn’t make them any less tasty. (Gods, I wish I had some escargots right now!)
