Like many of you, I am addicted to HBO’s True Blood. Best. Show. Ever. Certainly the best vampire show. How then, did they come up with the bone-headed scheme of naming a 3,000 year-old vampire king Russell? Seriously? Russell means “red” so I can see the meaning, but seriously. A tri-millenial vampire should surely rank a spookier name than Russell.
However, since they feel this name is fitting, and from the storyline, it looks pretty certain that King Russ is going to be offed soon, I have some alternate names for the replacement king:
- Bubba Joe Billy Bob VI
- Tiny Jim
- DJ Toofs
- Bingo the Clown
- Sunshine Deathray (which is apparently a real name)
- Mustafah Jones
- Dick Cheney
- What would you name the new vampire king?
