Thanks to all who participated in our Rename the Gulf of Mexico challenge. Just to recap, Democratic Mississippi representative Steve Holland was so steamed over the way Republicans' wasted time on symbolic posturing that he proposed renaming the Gulf of Mexico the Gulf of America.
As a joke. Also---as a joke—we said, go ahead, re-name the Gulf of Mexico. All of the responses were inspired---the name Gulf of Texaco came up a number of times-- but here are a few standouts.
Larry Harris: The Gulf of Messy-co
Tom Joad: The Best Damn Gulf Money Can Buy.
Andrew Tex La Brier: Can we call it a "7-11 Big Gulf"?
Don Scott: Here be dragons...
Josh Smith: The Body of Oil Formerly Known as the Gulf of Mexico
Anne Hetmaniak: The Gulf of "WHAT COLOR IS THIS WATER ANYWAY"?
Paul S. Campbell: The Firth of Filth
Adrian Bailey: Rename Mexico Rich, and America Poor, so the Gulf is between Rich and Poor?
Angeni Lemieux: The Big Ass Lake of Texas. Soon to be included as one of the Great Lakes.
peanut9000: The Breach of Contract
Herb Hicks: Gulf of Crimson Tide.....The Bear did walk on the water of this gulf
And my personal favorite….
NewOrleansWinosaur: The White-Is-Right-Baby-Jesus Gulf of Drill, Baby, Drill!!
Thanks again, everybody.
