A Boy named "Google"...

Only in Sweden can a kid be named Google, not get funny looks or get beat up in the schoolyard. Here in L.A. he would have trouble looking out a window (unless of course, he bought stock just when the company went public. Then he'll have plenty of friends to party with, like Anthony Michael Hall and Scott Baio). Apparently this isn't a new phenomenon, earlier this year it was reported that a Romanian couple named their kid Yahoo. But that was a hoax. I guess the Swedish didn't know that.
