Whatever candidate you are supporting in this year’s primary elections, you have to admit, it’s a pretty entertaining show. People on both sides of the aisle are doing some unconventional things and getting lots of people riled up. One thing that has evolved, thanks to Late Night TV Host John Oliver is that some people wish to call Donald Trump, Drumpf instead, because that more silly sounding name is actually Trump’s ancestral family name. In jest, some developers created a browser extension that changes his name that is displayed to Drumpf whenever you are reading about him.
There are other, less friendly Donald Trump browser extensions, though Trump is not the only celebrity to have these extensions made after him. There is even one to change the word Millenials to Snake People for some odd reason. Someone over at Wired was using a browser extension which changed Donald Trump’s name to “someone with tiny hands.” Unfortunately, this less than kind descriptor actually got put into the article for every single instance of Mr. Trump’s name! Somehow, the piece got through all of the levels of editing and got published. Wired could have been in big trouble but they quickly posted a retraction, fixing their naughtiness.
There are other silly Trump extensions like one that replaces his name with “Your drunk uncle at Thanksgiving.” The other candidates haven’t been left out of the fun either. There is one extension that can replace any candidate’s name with the cute smiling poo emoji! You’ll never have to read about Hillary or Cruz again!
The point is, be careful what you publish. At best, you’ll make a silly flub, at worst you’ll have someone’s lawyer busting down your door and demanding a settlement.
There are no upcoming events.
