For some time I've wondered about this fad of seemingly random words printed on candy wrappers (and a few other places). For instance, instead of "Snickers" it will say "Happy". Or on a pair of Twix 'fun-size' candies I have here one says "LEFT" and the other say, "RIGHT".

It finally dawned on me. The candy manufacturers are being "socially responsible" and this is their way of trying to introduce novel words into the vocabulary of today's youth.
