How about cruelty to parents?

Forgive us if you've been down this path, but we just heard about the PETA staff guy who has been allowed to change his legal name to ...

Proving once again that youth and intelligence are not necessarily entwined, the staffer formerly known as Chris Garnett went to court to get the new name.

"People don't believe me at first when I tell them my name, but it never fails to spark a discussion," Garnett, er,, said in a statement. "Many vow to boycott KFC after I explain the company's indifference to cruelty to animals."
Supporting his zeal is the ever-righteous Pamela Anderson, who said:
"I'm sure Chris can't wait till KFC stops torturing chickens so he can change his name back," the actress said in a statement, adding that the chicken abuse "is awful and has to stop."
First, you have to feel sorry for this guy's parents. They probably would like to change their names, or go into a witness protection program. There ought to be a federal law to help, and thus we propose one: If you go to court to have your name changed and are successful, the change should be permanent. Or at least good for 50 years.

That might cut down on a little of this nonsense.
