Fresh to you from stupidville, the YMCA has announced they are updating their image and rebranding.
Why? According to http://www.foxnews.com/ --- and I have no idea how the hell I wound up on that fair and balanced website --- this comes after two years of research and is intended to better clarify what their mission is: strengthen communities by focusing on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
Their new name? "The Y". Oh yeah, that brings total clarity. Two years to come up with a generic name like that? Morons.
And in case you are worried that this name change will impact how we dance at 70s parties and wave our arms around in the shape of the letters Y-M-C-A, the Village People's original lead singer Victor Willis has issued a statement saying that the group will not make any changes to its song "YMCA". Yes, really.
In the world of the Village People, the YMCA, or The Y, is the gayest place on earth...
They have everything for you men to enjoy.
You can hang out with all the boys...
You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time.
Gay, gay, gay, at The Y, Y, Y.
