Really? Not really much point in having a contest, now was there

Back at home Amy Poehler and Seth Myers do these awesome routines where they act sarcastic and say "Really?" making fun of the most preposterous things, like AIG's multimillion corporate retreat or a basketball star being caught carrying his own stash through airport security.

It's all I can think about when I hear the results of Emaar Properties fountain naming contest. There were 4,000 entries and the prize was 100,000 dirhams (about $35,000 Cdn). The winning name of that thing flowing water outside the Burj Dubai? The one that will be, I imagine, a bit like the fountain outside the Bellagio in Vegas?

Dubai Fountain.
