Barack Obama, Democratic presidential hopeful and poseur extraordinaire, proved his aspirations to greatness don’t need the experience or stature of previous politicians. Obama gave a grand speech at the site of the Berlin Wall, where John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan once stood and delivered their grand speeches.

I don’t care what crap I get for saying this but I will say it anyway: naming a child Talula Does the Hula from Hawaii, Fish and Chips, Apple, Taylor, Hayden, Montana, Dakota, Aiden, Kyla, Sierra, Hailey, Bailey, Cayley, Pax, Jermajesty, Tanisha or anything else in a similar vein is tantamount to child abuse. Anyone who gives their child such a name is a bad person for condemning said child to a lifetime of after-school beatings, cock-eyed stares and repeated questions like: “Is that your real name?” and “What’s wrong with you?” Children are people and shouldn’t have to flee the province and change their name from Brayden to something infinitely less gay. There are plenty of good and interesting names out there and failure to use them shows the parent as a person incapable of human warmth and intelligence. Use a good name for your kid (like Megatron, maybe- or not).
