Some Idiot Apparently Named Their Kid ‘Hashtag’

This reminds me of a bit from a Louis C.K. comedy special in which the comedian riffs on the ability of parents to name their children anything they want without any laws to prevent them from using something idiotic like, say, “Hashtag.”

“You know what’s amazing to me? You can name your kid anything you want,” C.K. marveled. “Isn’t that incredible? There are no laws. There should be a couple of laws.”

On the bright side, maybe there will be laws enacted re: names after Hashtag Jameson gets beaten up in 7th grade along with two kids named “Tweet” and “Reblogged.”
