A Romanian tabloid has fired a reporter for making up a story about a couple who named their son Yahoo as a sign of gratitude for meeting over the Internet.

A baby named Yahoo!?

Why not Yahooligan? Kids grow up fast enough without giving them "grown-up" names.

And is he advertising if he ever says, "Search me"?

These and similar issues will not need to be debated now. Shame.

Maybe this reporter can get a job with CBS or the New York Times.
