The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

9 April 2008

This never seems to happen in Regina

If those damned vandals don't knock it off, we may have to change the name of the village altogether:

Residents living in a graffiti-plagued village in Merseyside are being asked to consider changing its name to tackle vandals who alter signs in the village.

Lunt, which dates back to Medieval times, has been repeatedly targeted by vandals who change the "L" to a "C".

Not everyone is pushing for the change, though:

David Roughley, whose family has farmed in Lunt since 1851, added: "At the end of the day we live in Lunt and we don't want to change because of a few yobs. It is the vandals who should change, not the village."

The proposed new name is "Launt," with no change in pronunciation.

I thought that maybe they should change the name to either Luck or Ragina

I'm keeping an eye on this story: If the name change goes through, then I'm grabbing some spray paint, flying across the pond, and changing the name to "Taunt".

Not so offensive, but you gotta teach the Man that he can't keep you down....

Donaldson, if you do that at both sides of town, would that be the requisite MPFC reference? "I shall Taunt you a second time."
