Strip by: KelpTheGreat

{Lucy and Charlie Brown are standing on the pitcher's mound during a baseball game}
Lucy: Look, I found a list of the players on the other team..
Lucy: {reading from the list} Fanta, Halo, Ra, Espn, Brazen, Koi, Milady, Stalin...
Lucy: {reading from the list} Suede, Java, Usher, Audio, Nil, Eureka
Charlie Brown: Nobody's named Bill anymore..

The author writes:

Most of the names were taken from this article.

Aside from "Clay," most of the names in the original strip are now fairly common. They certainly don't seem as unusual and exotic to me as they must have to the people of 1997.

Here's hoping none of the names in this strip seem commonplace and ordinary to the people reading this in 2043...
