P. Diddy is changing his name!


Now that’s news I just couldn’t do without.

A man with a perfectly good name, Sean Combs, becomes a rapper, and needs a new handle. “Puff Daddy” is born, and Sean Combs dies an undignified death.

Before long, “Puff Daddy” is no longer satisfactory, so Puffy becomes “P. Diddy.” Don’t ask for an explanation. It really doesn’t matter.

Now, “P. Diddy” has been deemed unsatisfactory also, so, “P.” is gone. It’s now just “Diddy.”

This monumental event was brought on because Sean/Puff/P thought he needed to simplify things. "Nobody knew what to call me," he explained.

Really? Two name changes were confusing, so let’s have one more to make it easy. So, as of this morning, the personality formerly known as Sean Combs, Puff Daddy, Puffy and P. Diddy wants to be called Diddy.

The world can now resume its former course and pace.

Right on, Brad. It's cryptic. Easy to remember. And, it has the added benefit of being chant-able.

I have always (ok, maybe not ALWAYS...) said that equality will be truly here when a black man is being an asshole and I can call him one without being considered a racist.

Time to test this theory.

I reckon we should call him The Asshole Currently Known As Diddy.

I'm afraid that you may be a little premature on the equality issue, but I like your new name for him.
