    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    I did a search and couldn't find any mention of this absurdity anywhere, so what the hell. It's not "news" if you already know about it, but there may be some here who haven't heard.

    For those of you who don't know, the NFL's Michael Vick was hit with a lawsuit by a woman who claimed that he transmitted herpes to her. According to the suit, he told her his name was "Ron Mexico", thus setting off a wave of parody and hilarity. So much so that the NFL had to add the word "Mexico" to its banned merchandise naming convention list because so many people were ordering customized Falcons jerseys with the number 7 and the name "Mexico" across the back.

    Now you can generate your very own Ron Mexico-inspired alias using the Ron Mexico Name generator . Feel free to post yours here.

    For reference, mine is "Sonny Christmas Island".

    I don't think I'd pick up any women with that name.

    Ron Mexico, for whatever reason I can't help but lmao when I think about it.

    Even better, my whole name comes out to Marcus Vatican. :p

    The funny thing is, I already use a Ron Mexico type of name.
    Long story short. Had telemarketing job in college, had to come up with a name. I watched "Taxi" the night before, Latka developed an alternate personality name of Vic Ferrari. I thought it was really funny, so I came up of one of my own. Mitch Vegaas. I would tell the customers my name, and to make it sound somewhat legit, I would tell them there are two "A's" in the name, not one like the city.
    Got a great reaction from my co-workers and have used it as my alter-ego ever since. Hence my user name here at TB. If you're curious, my real name is Dale.

    Actually, he used that name when he was seeking out herpes testing and treatment, not to pick up women. I don't think he'd have to use an alias to pick up women at that point, he was already pretty famous.
