Another sign of the apocalypse: Couple names their baby ‘Facebook’

Baby Names Facebook

New evidence that not everyone is cut out to be a parent emerged recently when a couple in Mexico named their newborn baby “Facebook.” The poor child, which will someday be the target of endless ridicule, is also now the target of a new federal law in Mexico that has banned parents from using any one of a collection of 61 different names when naming their children. The law banning the names went into effect on Monday after officials scoured baby registries across the country for the best of the worst. Among the banned names are “Facebook,” “Rambo,” “Juan Panties,” “Lady Di” and “Circuncision,” which translates to “Circumcision.” The Associated Press reports that the goal of the law is to help protect children from being ridiculed and bullied, and the very fact that such a law has to exist should frighten us all.
