I'd avoid most medical terms especially things like: ulceration, necrosis, sputum, fissure, parasitic, gonorrhea (or really any of the -rhea words, for that matter)

Heartily disagree about "drool," "slobber," etc. If a beer has a goofy-ass name, I'll usually at least pick up the bottle and try to figure out what the heck the brewer was thinking, or ask the bartender "hey, what's the deal with this aardvark sweat?" If it turns out to be a style I'm in the mood for, hey, I'm already interested in it, more often than not, it'll end up in my basket or my glass.

Now, show me something like the zombie alien toy soldiers and golden-retreiver-women in bikinis on Jester King's labels -- crap that belongs in a kid's nightmare, not in a beer cellar -- and I won't pick up the bottle, much less bring it home where it can wait for me, plotting, in the dark...
