Another tidbit from Mark Morford of S.F. Gate fame:

== It's French For Christ But Your President Is A Dink ==
A British man named Eric Bush has taken a dramatic step to protest the
U.S.-led war in Iraq -- he's changed his name. Bush, a 72-year-old
retiree living in Jonquieres in southern France, says he was "ashamed"
to bear the same name as President Bush, as pretty much anyone with a
pulse and a conscience and a soul would be, and as most thoughtful
Americans now are, deeply deeply ashamed, or rather more like
embarrassed, horrified, no one really fond of being the bitter
laughingstock of the world, the most inarticulate smirking leader in
American history, oh god make it stop. His surname was officially
changed to Buisson, the French word for bush. "People tell me that this
will pass, but I don't agree, because this name will go down in history
as that of a tyrant," he said. The pair of giant rats who frequent the
dumpsters behind Buisson's apartment will, however, retain their
nicknames of Rummy and Dick, given their propensity to feed on rotten
dead things and to lovingly nibble on each other's mangy ears after a
particularly hearty meal of pigeon roadkill and love/hope/kindness
souffle.
