Ya gotta love those journalistic euphemisms

I've written so much about this in the last ten years that I can hardly stand to type the words "embryonic stem cell research" any more.

But sometimes I can still get a laugh (albeit a dark, humourless one) out of the things journalists make up on the subject.

Love this one esp:

"Human embryonic stem cell colony"

OK kids, pop quiz. What's the word for that used by people who took more than third grade science?
