okay, Chris got me thinking of this one cos you Americans call Fairy Floss "Cotton Candy" ... or something like that.
Anyway. I realised that both names are stupid. It's not REALLY cotton. It's a big ball of sugar. And do you see any fairies in the fairy floss? And why's it floss? Floss helps your teeth. I'm sure fairy floss DOESN't. And what kind of word is FLOSS anyway? Who made these things up? Who even thinks, "okay, well that will be called fairryyyyyy flosssss" because of how good it is for you (not) and all those fairies i see running around on it"?
