Best name for a television show ... ever.

China's runaway summer hit, "Super Girl," ended last weekend with a television viewership that eclipsed the population of North America. State news media reported that more than 400 million people watched the finale of the show, an "American Idol" knockoff. ... The program was ... sponsored by a dairy company. Hence, the full title of the show: "The Mongolian Cow Sour Yogurt Super Girl Contest." --The New York Times

I would so watch a show called "The Mongolian Cow Sour Yogurt Super Girl Contest."

In Japan there is (or was) a baseball team called the Nippon Ham Fighters. It sounds like their emblem should be someone bashing a ham with a baseball bat, but it turns out that the team name is the Fighters and they're owned by the Nippon Ham Company.
