Misnomers

1. Grape-Nuts: neither grape nor nuts.









2. The Naked Cowboy: neither naked nor cowboy.











3. An egg cream: neither egg nor cream.











4. Mexican-American comedian Carlos Mencia: Neither actually Mexican-American nor actually named Carlos Mencia nor, let's face it, much of a comedian.

Misnomer #5: "Ben Bass And Beyond." So far it's all 'beyond' -- I'm waiting till they start giving us the *real* Ben Bass. Yeah, I'm down with that shit (oh shit - can we say swears?)

I feel like I have to watch some Carlos Mencia. Everyone says he's shit.
