What's the funniest wifi network name you've found?

What's the funniest name for a wireless network you've found, and where did you find it?

Sometimes I am so bored when traveling that scrolling through wifi networks on my laptop is an activity unto itself. Actually...I do this at home too Does anyone else?

In my apartment there is an unprotected network called "Beerpong," though the signal is so low I can't use it. I also often find protected networks with really long names like "dontstealthisyouidiot" and "notyournetworkgoaway" etc.

I found one recently called "Dang! I left my network open!" It was, of course, open and available to all...

A group of us were driving around Burbank looking for the nearest Costco for 1 hour photo developing. I had my laptop so we started cruising neighborhoods for a signal. We finally found an open one named "Closet." Everyone in the car thought that was pretty funny. When I found the directions we all yelled our thanks to Closet out the window.

Normally I find most open signals still have the default.

At my place you'll find T-mobile and Starbucks. Sadly it isn't worth trying to get on them though

Obviously you are under CIA surveillance!

Mine has been Peaceful for many years. When I put together my first WiFi home network 802.11b's spectrum was still classified for Military use. I wanted to make sure that the army didn't bash down my door while I was in the middle of bashing a lamassu causing me to starburst or worse die and lose tons of XP!
