Cornfield Meet

Things collide here.

Canton v. Colesville: Anagram Challenge

Six days in,  Google Maps v. Reality: The Battle of Canton-Colesville rages on. The day after a few Northeast Ohio media outlets ran with it, the Associated Press picked up and abbreviated the Repository’s piece.

I propose the city’s name be decided through a contest of relative anagram coolness.

In one corner, Canton, Ohio, which, among other permutations, offers us “Hi-Noon Taco.” (To me, “Hi” in this case not being the greeting, but a faux-catchy usage like “krazy” or “nite” or “thru.”)

The challenger: Colesville, Ohio, which can be remixed into “Loose Chili Love.”

Tough call.

  1. You’re crazy, man. There is NO CONTEST here. ANYTHING that even refers to a taco, INSTANTLY WINS!

    Coincidentally, it’s Taco Night in America!!

    Canton also takes the Mexican food sweep with “In Nacho, Too”

    • I noticed the availability of “nacho” in there, too: Canton es muy caliente!

  2. What the heck is this??? You have to keep me posted on the results. I have never felt so angry about the inter-web as I do know. This is corporate propaganda and a sad dark vision of the future. “if its on the web, its real.”

    Like the debates about sports teams “belonging” to the communities they are in. City names should not be allowed to be altered, digital or other without the city fathers (and mothers) deciding that it should change.
