Engineering geek names son version 2.0

Jon Blake Cusack talked his wife, Jamie, into naming their son Jon Blake Cusack 2.0.

Version 2.0 was born Tuesday at Holland Community Hospital, and the proud parents took him home Friday.

When I first saw the headline, I thought he had literally named his son "Version 2.0". I'm glad at least some decorum won out. However, the article prompted some questions:

  1. Jon Cusack?!
  2. Bwuh?
  3. Did he refer to his child during the gestation phase as a beta version?
  4. If his wife had had an abortion, would the baby have been vaporware?

And I'm sure there are plenty of other pointless, and equally tasteless, questions that could be raised.

Thanks to Jenny for the link

  1. How to get your kid beat up EVERY DAY at school.I suppose it's slightly preferable to "Jon Blake Cusack Plus Plus".On the other hand, there'd be something kind of old-school-hip about "Jon Blake Cusack ][".
