    well, out of available choices I’d say they didn’t do too bad…

    Lior and Vardit are naming their child Like. With Assad in there as a choice this reminds me of that old Saturday Night Live Sketch about the Asswipes.

    At least they avoided a possible trademark-infringement suit by not naming the kid “Book.”

    Twitter and Cheezburger could probably get into a nasty little fight over FAIL, or at least #fail.

    The name “Spam” sounds distinctly inappropriate for an Israeli couple.
