The Artist Formerly Known as Meat

Don't you just hate it when you go to the grocery and can't figure out the difference between ground beef, flank steak, and pork chops and leave with a raging meat-induced headache? 
Oh really?  Me neither.
Nonetheless, The National Pork Board and the National Cattlemen's Beef Association have decided to rename all the meat you can buy at the grocery store.

They are renaming the cuts of meat to reflect names that people are more familiar with from restaurants.  And by restaurants I'm sure they mean Red Robin. 
I'm sorry but a "Denver Steak" is not less confusing than "Beef under blade boneless steak".  I literally have no idea what a Denver Steak is. 
And "Beef loin top sirloin cubes" will now become "kabobs." Because apparently we are that stupid.
So  this summer, if it ever stops raining, fire up your grill, gather your brethren, and get out your meat thesaurus, because meat nomenclature as we know it will never be the same.
