Dumbass Idea of the Week: Call me "Fruit of the Loom"

Some professional Luger thought it'd be a good idea to change his name to the brand of one of his sponsors.  So when we watch the Olympics coming up (assuming he makes it there), we should be on the look out for a Tongan named "Bruno Banani."

What's wrong with that, other than the fact that he named himself after a brand?  It's an underwear brand . . .

Now of course it's less ridiculous than changing your name to, say, "Dick Fruit of the Loom," but just imagine if someone's last name was Hanes.  You might not snicker, but you'd think about it.

Anyway you look at it, this guy changed his name to his sponsor's brand, and that's pretty stupid.  I guess we can look at it this way: how often does someone from Tonga make the news?
