Today I was working at generalizing language in the Human Essentials App, and I came across "humanize".  

Humanize is a method on string in rails that capitalizes the first word, turns underscores into spaces, and strips "_id", so that you can make field names into words.

What I don't see here is any use where you would use this in anything other than an unilingual (probably English) application where the developers and the audience speak the same language..  

So,  in that uniquely arrogant Anglo-Canadian way, I am annoyed to some extent that it even exists, but ticked off that it is called "humanize".  

I mean, c'mon folks, you can do better than that.  I propose some form of "de_snake".
