Name of the day: Dung Le. I think it's obvious that this person is not American, and I told myself that I wouldn't make fun of foreign names. But this one is too good to pass up.

You may recall from fifth grade American history that as immigrants passed through Ellis Island, some of their names were changed to something more American, e.g., Schlemiel became Roberts.

When someone with a name like Dung applies for a visa to come here, our government should help a boy out. We should send the following correspondence or something like it:

Dear Dung,
Your name means 屎 here. We suggest Steve as a healthy alternative. Sign here x_____________, and that is your official U.S. name. Leave the Dung in China.

Sincerely, just trying to give a guy a break,
