Please, Allow Me

Please, allow Banality Fair to be among the first of what will surely be an onslaught of bloggers to point your browsers in the direction of this story:

"A Romanian couple named their son Yahoo as a sign of gratitude for meeting over the Internet, a Bucharest newspaper said Thursday.

Daily Libertatea said Cornelia and Nonu Dragoman, both from Transylvania, met and decided they were meant for each other following a three-month relationship over the net."

Here are some mandatory jokes, surely to be repeated ad nauseum across the blogosphere: What if they had met using the search engine Dogpile? THAT would have been unfortunate. On the other hand, if they had met on Ask Jeeves, the kid would've had a fighting chance to make it as an English butler. As it is, the kid is doomed to a fate worse than death.

I can beat that. We named our daughter after my grandmother. Her name is Frances. Crazy.

At least it's pronouceable. That's all I have to say about it.
