woohooligan I can't wait for Strapped & Reddy! It's one of those buddy-cop action-comedy shows. They play good-cop bad cop. Strapped is the good cop.

What's even funnier is that a group of folks recently did create a crowdsourcing campaign to jumpstart this inexpensive food alternative for worldwide distribution -- they're trying to solve world hunger basically -- and they named it Soylent! And for some reason, people flocked to it like flies to shmeat! ;P

Of course there are plenty of examples of fine ideas with horrible names. There are a couple you'll definitely recognize in this week's alternate ending. (For about a week until the next comic is published.)

You know what else is horribly named? The Woohooligan facebook page, I mean... who would choose a name like "woohooligan"?! But I guess, glass houses are a great place for stoning people... or something.

What's your favorite naming blunder? Was it a person like Dweezil Zappa? A company like Uncle Adolph's Kosher Meats or a product like Grey Poupon?

p.s. I've started working on a KickStarter campaign to get some ebooks and posters made. Look for it in the next few weeks.

Stay awesome, hooligans!
What's on your mind?
