“My Name is (Insert TV Network here) Bogus”

From Yahoo: An ESPN film crew is coming to the Panhandle town of Pampa next month to interview the family of 2-year-old ESPN Malachi McCall for a feature on children around the country with the unique name.

ESPN (pronounced Espen) McCall is one of at least three youngsters in the United States known to be named for the sports network. A couple in Corpus Christi named their son Espn Curiel in 2000, the same year Espen Blondeel was born in Michigan.

T.B.: I now want to name my son CNN (pronounced Sen or Sean (shawn)). Think about that: CNN Bogus. He’s going to have it rough enough having a last name of Bogus (yes, it’s pronounced like it looks). Seriously, though, I think this gives a whole new meaning to the movie The Truman Show.
