Pedantic Bastard is Pedantic

While making a snide comment about Ceci Connolly on another blog, I linked to an advertisement for a brand of imported Ceci, and discovered, to my horror, the following sentence:

Carmelina Brands® Garbanzo Beans, or as they are called in Italy, Ceci, are not really beans at all, but are part of the pea family.

Now, this sort of thing really sets my pulse racing- hee hee.

Chick peas. They don't like watching football.

Peanuts = legumes, not "nuts," as well.

Who the hell decided to use all these folk names? Anti-elitests?
