Sometimes, when the powers-that-be ask for public input, they get answers they don’t expect.
Take, for example, the sewage treatment plant in San Francisco, which was almost named for George W. Bush last year.
Or perhaps this recent example, in which NASA asked for public input on what to name a new module of the international space station. The trouble started when NASA allowed write-in votes. Beating out “Serenity,” the top NASA suggestion, was “Colbert,” which collected over 230,000 write-in votes after The Colbert Report show host Stephen Colbert asked viewers to write in his name.
In that vein, we’re having a Letters From Texas Worldwide Headquarters contest!
This blog’s name will change for one day only: April Fools Day, April 1st. I don’t know what the new name of the blog will be, but you do.
Post your suggestion in the comments section today, for the April Fools Day name for this blog. I’ll take the funniest, most irreverent, or at least most interesting proposed name, and it will become the name of the blog for April Fools.
If there are several great ideas, I’ll probably post a poll in a couple of days and let readers decide. UPDATE: I am definitely going to post a poll with several of the best ideas, and readers will decide.
What do you win? Well, nothing except bragging rights, but what the hell, post an entry anyway.
Get to it – this blog ain’t gonna name itself!
Update #2: you can keep commenting if you want, but the finalists are already being polled on top of the right hand sidebar. So scroll up there and vote for your favorite!
