Yeah, I'd like to be able to, also. Mind you, that's able to, not actually do!

After stories like this, I always ask myself why I didn't think of writing ads on my forehead, or seeing Mary or Jesus - or whoever - in pan-fried food... or asking a pregnant friend to pee on a test strip.  I can't imagine what the next thing will be, but I wish I'd think of it first! :roll:

Last month, the online casino paid $15,100 to a Connecticut woman to name her newborn GoldenPalace.com.

I know, wouldnt you go for more money? $15,000 to name your child a ridiculous name? I mean I would hold out for at least $20,000.

Hell I would have done it for 10 grand, it'd get me a decent new car or maybe even a harley davidson.
We can always legally change the name before he hits school and people start calling him Golden Palace dot com.

As I recall, Acclaim once had a similar promotion for the first parents who would name  their child "Turok."  According to the terms of the contract, I believe he only had to legally keep the name for one year after birth.

If the parents need the money, and don't have to keep the name, then I can't really fault the parents.  It's a good deal getting that much money to help raise a child.

Heck, you can let the child choose his name.  I chose my own name when I entered junior high.

Ooo, I wonder what that 'haunted cane' does...

Other off-the-wall items owned by Golden Palace include a sandwich resembling the Virgin Mary, a Doritos chip that looks like the Pope’s hat and a haunted cane.

I'll give 'em $5 if they do.  Only have to keep the name a year.

I'll give 'em $50 if their ad campaign uses the phrase, "Taste the Golden Spray."
