Answer this rhetorical question

Here in Lafayette, a hugely popular sushi restaurant goes by the name "Tsunami." Do you suppose that, in the wake of the tragic tidal wave in southeast Asia, they're going to change the name?

No, why would they. There are tsunami's year around that dont get this much news coverage.

Perhaps they'll close and reopen as a BBQ joint, with the name "Clearing Brush".

If they do that, oyster, they won't be able to put any pictures on the side of their shack showing the pigs getting nice and smooth. I mean, naked animals on public display: what kind of depravity is next?

When I was driving to my magazine meeting after writing that post, the words "Miami Hurricanes" came into my head. So I guess it was dumb of me ever to pose the question in the first place.

Don't worry Ian, we expect stupid shit from you.

The San Jose Sharks come to mind.

The band Anthrax thought about a name-change in 2001 after the mail attacks, but decided against it, mainly because no one knew who the fuck they were anymore.

There'll be a mudslide in Nova Scotia next week, and the Asian tsunami will be forgotten. And then TGI Fridays will have to consider changing the name of its chocolate flavored dessert drink.

In the wake of changing the name, they ought to also change the menu. As someone who catches and eats alot of fish, I think sushi is a complete waste of good seafood.

They ought to change there name to "Bonsai is just as good without the see-and-be-seen froofery and much more affordable prices and besides, they just moved into a new place and the atmosphere is so cas (ual) and cool you'd be crazy to eat here" but, my God, what would it cost to put that on a billboard?
