How does the guy who drives the snowplow get to work in the mornings?
Is it ever possible to have a "civil" war?
If a turtle doesn't have a shell, is he homeless or naked?

I was listening to the Rush Limbaugh radio program on Friday when he brought up this story:
Fed up with what it considers "hostile" and "abusive" American Indian nicknames, the NCAA announced Friday it would shut those words and images out of postseason tournaments, a move that left some school officials angry and threatening legal action.
Starting in February, any school with a nickname or logo considered racially or ethnically "hostile" or "abusive" by the NCAA would be prohibited from using them in postseason events.
Rush then wondered aloud what names the offending Universities would adopt instead. So do I.
I am looking forward to the day when I can watch a bowl game between the North Dakota Fighting Displaced Native American Victims of American Atrocities vs. the Oklahoma State Rapers and Pillagers of Tradition Rich Native American Tribes.
I would be interested in hearing what names my blogger friends can cook up. Let's hear it!
