Steriod* (for Steroid)

Steroid use in competitive sports has hit a sore spot with bad-boy ballplayer Jose Canseco's told-ya-so tell-all called Vindicated, in which he declares victory over the blind as a bat naysayers in his chosen field. OhioLINK swells with a muscular 36 cases of Steriod* and four more of Stereoid*. (Pictured here on an early 20th-century baseball card is Hall of Famer Addie Joss, looking quite naturally fit and trim, from Wikimedia Commons.)

Correction: It has come to our attention that stereoid is a mycological term, correctly used in the references above, and, according to Wikipedia, "should not be confused with the word steroid."
