Lincoln, Freedom, Condoleezza, Coke, Pepsi, Manifest Destiny, Apple Pie, and Superman*

From World O'Crap, we learned something we never cared to learn.

According to iVillage as of March 15, the least popular boy baby names are:
  1. Michael
  2. Dick
  3. John
  4. Bob
  5. George
What's the significance of this? Well, it's obvious! They are the first names of the last five failed presidential candidates: Michael Dukakis, John Kerry, Bob Dole, George H. W. Bush, and (given the real power behind the throne, and given the actual vote count in 2000) Dick Cheney.


(Although it's notable that Michael is also the most popular boy name. Bertha is the least popular girl name. Sorry, Aunt Bertha!)

*For those not in the know, these are the names Apu Nahasapeemapetilon gave his kids after Springfield renamed itself Libertyville. Their real names, of course, are Anoop, Uma, Nabendu, Poonam, Pria, Sandeep, Sashi, and Gheet.
