Monday Memo: It's Time to Vote

This is just to say that if you've never visited Name of the Year, you're doing yourself a major disservice. If you're confused, I'll mention that they are a site that, since 1983, has aimed "to discover, verify, nominate, elect and disseminate great names." After the jump, have a look at the winners of each of the past 10 years, and most importantly, get over there and vote in their Sweet Sixteen brackets. This year's ballot can be perused here.

NOTY 1999: Licentious Beastie (INVALIDATED 2006; Runner-up: Dick Surprise)
NOTY 2000: Nimrod Weiselfish
NOTY 2001: Tokyo Sexwale
NOTY 2002: Miracle Wanzo
NOTY 2003: Jew Don Boney Jr.
NOTY 2004: Jerome Fruithandler
NOTY 2005: Tanqueray Beavers
NOTY 2006: Princess Nocandy (who somehow beat out Gordon Cobbledick and Dick Dong Wang)
NOTY 2007: Vanilla Dong
NOTY 2008: Spaceman Africa (The People);Destiny Frankenstein (NOTY High Committee)

Now, seriously: Go vote.
