It takes 5 minutes! Help me rename! [Winners Annouced!]
Hey mates,

I wanted to rename my shoppe on Hubbles Eye called Road Runners Choice. The theme for that island is cartoon characters to my knowledge. So all you have to do is give me a new rename.
I'd prefer it if you kept to 3 suggestions, 1 pirate, 1 post. Also just tell me why you pick that name

First prize: 50k
Second: 25k
Honorable mentions: 10k

Happy renaming mates!

I would prefer that the name have no connection to the iron monger. I just want it to have a nice ring to it and relate to something cool. Feel free to edit your posts.

Re: It takes 5 minutes! Help me rename! Win 50k
I believe the naming theme is not cartoon characters as a whole, but Looney Tunes characters specifically.

Edit: Suggestions:

Elmer Fudd's Furnace

Fudd's Furnace- Elmer Fudd is a character from the Looney Tunes cartoons. Same reason for the above suggestion.

Smithing Sylvester-Sylvester is also a character from the Looney Toons cartoons.

Dropping anvils

I'll limit myself to this one. It just fits soooo many cartoons, while also being very much an IM staple.

Elmer Fudd's Furnace

Or simply, Fudd's Furnace

Smithing Sylvester

I believe the fort name is the Fortress of Solitude which is from Superman (I think) which isn't a Looney Tune to my knowledge. I'm probably wrong though.

Oh, didn't catch that one :p The Fortress Of Solitude was from Superman. I think the rest are named after Looney Tunes, but I'm probably wrong.

1) Tigger Happy.
Reason: Well obviously it is a pun upon the phrase "Trigger Happy" which relates to when a bnavver fires absurd amounts of cannonballs at the enemy ship.

2)

Re: It takes 5 minutes! Help me rename! Win 50k
Acme is already the name of the commodity center. Remember to give a link, or at least explain your selection... For example if you were to say fortress of solitude you'd say the name and say it was thehideout for superman from the show superman. It is located on the north pole. Try to edit your posts... I'm not currently liking some of them :(
Remember you have only about a week left! But I will extend if need be.

I'm extending the date of this competition because I don't like the name selections. You have till January 8 2012 to post.

That will be the confirmed ending date.

2. Sea and Buy

3. We Know H Two Oh

So basically you are just going to extend it until you get one you like which could take months....what a waste of time. If you are going to extend the time maybe you should give us some back round information about yourself like which characters are you favorites or something to help us rather than just expect us to peak your interests...

Re: It takes 5 minutes! Help me rename! Win 50k
All these are from the show Futurama :D

Nibbler 's Passings

Planet Express' Fuel Generator

Mom's Dark Matter Farm

Quick clarification:

Nibbler is part of an alien race that poops Dark Matter which is used as space ship fuel in the Team's space ship (called Planet Express).
Mom is an antagonist who attempts to control the Dark Matter monopoly (parody of oil monopoly) by kidnapping all of Nibbler's race and farming their poop.

It's a very wonderful Sitcom series :D Though I do warn that it may offend some parties.

Way to not read all the posts in the thread brah. By extending the time, I got more posts from people that look at the forum weekly or bi-weekly... Not everyday.
