You’ve gotta have thought to yourself, ‘What the fuck?’, when you saw the new name of Vegemite ‘Name Me’... the wonderful blend of Australia’s greatest invention and cream cheese.
Had it been a vote scenario, I can only imagine such a shit name could get over the line when one cockhead was particularly ferocious in requesting that their ridiculous amount of facebook ‘friends’... then friends of friends... vote for their option. Even then, no matter how good that friend was, I just can’t see myself actually voting for such a shitty name!
Otherwise, I can’t fathom what kind of an f-wit (or round table of f-wits) would seriously go, ‘Yeah! iSnack 2.0 – great name! One that isn’t (or won’t become) dated at all!’ But it just goes to show what can happen when the decision to name a great Australian product is sent offshore. Apparently, there were (in my opinion) much better suggestions like 2ritemite, Cheddamite and Snackimite... much more suitable and palatable!
Yesterday morning, after Micko and I first saw the ad announcement the night before, I went to make myself a couple of pieces of toast, and was surprised to discover Micko had renamed ‘iSnack 2.0’ himself...
