A Rose by Any Other Name Would Smell as Sweet.  But, how accurate would that other name be?

The Bard was right.  “A rose, by any other name,” would likely “smell as sweet.”
But, how likely would we be to press our nose to the precious petals if a rose were called, let’s say, a “bugger?”
Not so much. 

“It is what it is,” so the saying goes.

Yet, it may not be what it’s called.

Seriously, how accurately are products named?
Grape Nutsno grapes; no nuts…
Chicken Fingers – just wrong on every level.
Buffalo Wings?  Plllease
Pecan Sandies, however, could the name BE more accurate?
So dry, indeed, like cookies made of sand.  And I do not, will not, can not wash them down with milk.
No, I’m not lactose intolerant.
I am simply intolerant of milk.
Consequently, my remedy for mitigating this particular parched pastry?  The banana.
It’s true – bite of cookie, bite of banana…  Repeat as necessary.
Problem solved.
