The New “The Lady or The Tiger?”

Why is it so much better that the name Jelly Belly can refer to either the brand of fancy jellybeans or the horrific disease pseudomyxoma peritonea, in which a tumor causes excess mucus production that swells the abdomen and compresses and endangers the various torso vital structures?

Remember, when you hear “Jelly Belly,” think delicious multiflavored candies. Or cancerous, fatal abdominal swelling. Your pick.
