I feel it is my civic duty to defend my hometown and its recent efforts that landed it on national news.
Because really, it could be considered progressive, people.
I mean, if you think about it.
You know, like "Oooooh! Look at that Midwestern town using such hip marketing ploys in order to woo Google the Internet Giant. That's, like, almost as cool as Google Chrome."
And I mean, who else is changing their name in order to prove their Googledevotion anyway?!
Huh? Right?! You get me?! Google me that!
And further, towns don't just change their name at the drop of a hat.
--Okay, fine, I mean I guess there was that one time back in 1998.
But that was progressive too, in a way. I mean, Pikachu was like today's Twilight for crying out loud!
What's that? You don't believe me?!
Whatever. Bunten, I'm on your side. The capital city of fiber optics has such a nice ring to it.
...And if you don't know who Bunten is, then you can TOPEKA IT!
