New Orleans Pelicans Don’t Fly

News broke Wednesday that the New Orleans NBA team will
change its name from the Hornets to the Pelicans
While we realize that the name has significance since Louisiana's state bird is
the pelican and one appears on the state seal and flag, it's still highly
lame.  So we compiled some viable options the team should have considered:

* New Orleans Gumbo

* New Orleans Treme

* New Orleans Beads

* New Orleans Open Container

* New Orleans STDs

* New Orleans Street Urine

* New Orleans Flashers

* New Orleans Lenny Kravitzes

* New Orleans Regret

* New Orleans Stink Hole


* New Orleans Boner Patrol

* New Orleans Swamp Ass

* New Orleans Booby Balconies

* The New Orleans Are You Still Speaking English?

* New Orleans Joe Francis Documented Rape Zone

* New Orleans George Bush Doesn't Care About Black

    No one shall ever top that list of appropriate team names for the dump that is New Orleans and was even before Katrina! The Hernia does it again!

    My additional nominations are as follows:

    New Orleans Dump

    New Orleans Meth-Heads

    New Orleans Gutter Rats

    The Regret or the Swamp Ass are my two faves. Make it so, Hernia!
