Reply Reply 1 Max DeYoung "New York officials voted to stop the practice this week." That, in a nutshell, describes how messed up New York is. They would prefer names like Lambs, Opossums, Fawns and names similar to that. I can't say the other names that they would approve of because it would be removed.

Random guess, 99% would say "Dude, I don't care...I got more important things to do." Only the 1% get time on the mainstream media to spark this fake outrage.
