I designed a game that has 10-15 different commodities and I could use a little help naming them.

What I'm looking for is creative names (preferrably 2 words, but not necessary) that have a real commodity as part of the name.

For example:

DYE is a commodity (used in Civilization as I recall) so one of my commodities is TIE DYE

Another example:

WOOD - typical commodity

turns into MORNING WOOD! (this one won't be making it into the final game for obvious reasons, but gives you an idea of what I'm looking for).

I have 7 pretty much set, but that means I need 3-8 more.

Any ideas welcome!

Wood Knot (Or Wood Ent)
Tea Bones (Tea Shirts)
Loose Eels

I'm sure there are lots of oxymorons that would fit as well.
