Pour some (corn) sugar on me!

People, the nefarious corn growers want to change the name of high fructose corn syrup to "corn sugar".

Those bastards!

Luckily, we have a noble group mobilizing to stop the cornies' nefarious plan:

The sugar growers!

Yes, the Sugar Association is suing the Corn Refiners Association to stop the name change. If we could somehow get the Cotton Association in on this farce we'd have the trifecta of US agricultural policy stupidity.

Don't worry, soon enough their thoughts will come back to sugar import quotas and ethanol and these two lobbies will put aside their petty squabbles and rededicate themselves to a united front in fucking over consumers, the environment, foreign producers, etc.

The term "corn sugar" is already used to refer to dextrose, which is pure glucose and contains no fructose.
