Once again BBC sets out to bash us quaint colonials! Darn I hate that propaganda. Did it not occur to them to check Britain's population data? There are more than likely a few children in Britain named after brand names, as insanity, contrary to the popular belief among some international news networks, is not confined to the United States. Perhaps more children in the UK are named Royce because of Rolls Royce?
While I admit what these parents are doing is utterly moronic and contemptible, the numbers mentioned in the article are a microscopic fraction of the United States. A grand total of 451 persons are mentioned in the article. So what? There are more legally insane people in the USA than that. How is this specific to the USA? Surely, if there are 451 such instances in the USA, there will also some instances in Canada, Australia, the UK, basically, any country where these brandings are visible.
BBC really is increasingly risking loosing their reputation for credible journalism. Too bad, as just a few years ago I thought somewhat highly of them. This news story is on the whole the biggest load of nonsense I have seen, and I have seen quite a bit...
