    God bless that family for keeping their name. I think at some point, I would be willing to ditch my heritage and opt for something that wouldn’t get laughs every time I had to introduce myself.

  2. 2

    Yeah, but they did change the way they pronounce it. Still, a ballsy move to keep it. ;)

  3. 3

    hahaha It sure is. But the city is probably going to sack whoever came up with the idea for the contest.

  4. 4

    Why would they do that? It ‘taint his fault that Mr. Baals was so well loved and respected by his constituency.

  5. 5

    Sure, it sounds like he was well-respected at first, but I feel like this renaming incident is just the tip of the problem.

  6. 6

    Well, yeah. I’m sure his poor family members get the shaft in this way all the time, you know?

  7. 7

    Yeah, I guess it would be a real boner to blame the family for the grief other people have given them.

  8. 8

    People get prickly where names are involved, and downright anal when it comes to the honor of their family.
