    I'm sitting at my PowerBook with the news on in the background... I hear them say that there's a new baby elephant and the Houston Zoo needs help picking names.
    One of them is Mac! Yeah, they say it's like the truck, but I think they really mean like the computer. Silly zoo! :rolleyes::)

    So, click to vote. You don't need to fill out any of that name and address stuff. I'm not sure how many times a day you can vote, but go nuts! :)

    If "Mac" wins, I'll go to the Zoo and take a picture with the new elephant in the frame somewhere. I'll also write a pro-MacRumors song and dance and perform it at the zoo in a fancy-dancy MacRumors shirt.

    Hooray for Elephants and online name voting! :)

    Done.

    If "Mac" wins, we should adopt him...we can have a section of the site devoted to Mac News and Rumors.

    You seem to be missing the point...there's no poll to be offered. The idea is that we all vote for "Mac." If you don't like it, feel free to head over to JanuRumors.com and hang out there. :p ;)

    spicyapple, I can't sing and dance in public on video for JanuRumors.com.

    That's just silly.

    :D

    2.8mm votes for "Mac" from around the world.

    Zoo PR people: "I wonder how that happened?"

    I voted Mac (wonder why), but think maybe MassiveWang should have been an obvious choice. They do seem to go on and on about how 'big' he is. :rolleyes:

    Call the zoo and ask. You have a valid point.

    Whoa. First time for everything, right?

    I would also submit "Hungo" and "Draggy" as valid names.
