We've Run Out Of Names

I was discussing bowl games with Eli 20.5, and we decided that bowl games use random name generators now. "Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl Presented by Bridgestone" isn't an actual bowl name, but it could be.

I stand corrected. It is, in fact, an actual bowl game name from 2003. And they've gotten none the better in the last 18 years.

Here's the basic formula: Corporate Sponsor (Slim Jim) + Bowl name (Nectarine)+ Another Sponsor (Tampax). There you have it, and the result is the Slim Jim Nectarine Bowl Presented By Tampax. 

Totally plausible.

I mention this because I believe a beer company is using the same random name generator. Have a look:

That's "Three Floyd's Gumball Head Wheat Beer."

The Three Floyd's Gumball Head Wheat Beer Oregano Bowl Presented By Bad Boy Mowers, anyone?
