Copro is a prefix meaning excrement. Cephaly means to do with the brain. I think you can put the rest together. ;)

Or maybe it's acute pneumoencephalopathy. This is a bit of medical slang. :lol:

Toys R Us dropping the boys and girls labeling.

It appear TRU and a bunch of other retailers will no longer be separating the boys and girls toys by gender. and any signage will depict both playing with the various toys.

This appears to be only in the UK though, going by the article and by the list of retailers.

They're saying now that overhead gantrys with speed restrictions and flashing lights are needed. Heaven forbid that motorists drive according to the conditions they can see.
