    Texas town renames itself 'Dish' to get free TV The town of Clark? I guess their 10 year supply of free Clark bars has ended [​IMG]

    p.s. I'm meeting with the mayor of my town to have our name changed to "Hummer" - either the SUV or the (you know) [​IMG]

    What a coincidence! I'm meeting with our mayor to discuss changing the town's name to "Cash."

    And I thought MY town had a weird name! I live in Killer Home Theater, Hot Chicks, and a Million Dollars a Year for Life, TX.

    Boy, what a geek forum this is. All they can think of is money or home theater equipment. OK, Greg mentioned hot chicks but that was still only second on his list after home theater! [​IMG]

    Me, I'm considering relocating to one of the following places:

    Romance, Arkansas (A rather veiled approach)
    Hornytown, North Carolina (That's rather more direct)
    Intercourse, Pennsylvania (Doesn't get any more obvious than that, now does it?)

    Nothing, they got shafted. [​IMG]

    Right now I live in San Andreas Cholula, and we didn't get any free copies of the most recent Grand Theft Auto game. Of course in a town where most peeps don't own a car, a game about carjacking probably wouldn't do as well.

    Well, in real life, I'd probably like to live in "Peace, CT", but that wouldn't get too many responses. [​IMG]

    This idea's money, since the Federal Reserve is about to launch a huge marketing campaign to get people to realize how valuable cash is. They want to make cash the must-have item this holiday season.

    and to Paul's surprise, instead of money, everyone in his town gets a free Johnny Cash CD. [​IMG]

    After the 10 years are up and everyone's watched enough Dish Network, this town will change its name to "TV Sucks" or "Don't Pay For TV" [​IMG]

    Not a bad idea. Better than running up a huge credit card bill.
