Knowing the creativity that resides on here, maybe you guys could have some input on a new name smile


A group wants the city of Coon Rapids, Minnesota, to change it's name - saying it has a racist connotation ...



"We did get a lot of really good stories from people who are ashamed of the name who don't tell people where they're from," Lori Anderson with Tranformative Circle said. "Who prefer to tell people they are from Minneapolis or a northern suburb or who don't even come to Coon Rapids because they're afraid."

There's a Coon Valley, WI not far from where I grew up. Wonder when that will be renamed.

They probably need to rename the animal to something else while they are at it. Sorta liked they renamed the Jewfish to Goliath Grouper. You know just to be safe.

I think all of Minnesota and Wisconsin should be combined into one state and renamed “We’re Retarded.”

I'd be all for that - annex Madison, Milwaukee, Twin Cities and Duluth as their own entities and it'd be a wonderful merger.
We'd then give the Vikings to North Dakota.
