There’s a lot to be said for the changing dynamic of national identity, tv culture, and all-around hilarity when a TV host (on cable no less) is able to thwart a nation’s process of naming a structure as prominent as a bridge.
It reminds me of the types of hooliganry that the Something Awful.com goons take part in whenever there’s some sort of open-ended vote on ‘their’ internet.
