The Unnamed Talk Show

[But it does have a name - "Unnamed" IS a name]
[Fine. For lack of a better name]
Cheny: Hello, and welcome to The Unnamed Talk Show. I'm your host,
Cheny, and this is my co-host, Aparna.
Aparna: Today we will talk about the controversy between unnamed
things. Should we have unnamed things or not?
Cheny (under breath): Note to self: Never let Aparna pick the
Cheny: Some things have names. For instance, Aparna has a name:
Aparna. Some things don't have names. For instance, our talk show.
Aparna: That is why Unnamed is the best name for a talk
show, because then we can talk about unnamed things!! And that is the best
topic! There is so much controversy in it! But there is no controversy in my
name - Aparna.
Cheny: But "Unnamed" IS a name! Although I'd rather it be called
the "Cheny and Aparna Talk Show." Furthermore, I don't see any controversy.
Aparna: The controversy is - on one side,
people want "The Unnamed Talk Show" - that's us, on the other hand, people
don't want the talk show unnamed. They want us to have a name. "Cheny and
Aparna Talk Show" is a very boring and uninteresting name. The "Unnamed Talk
Show" is a much more mysterious and interesting, and "Unnamed" is not a
name, it's an "unname"! No more arguing - let's start the talk show! What
should we talk about first?
Cheny: Uh... the talk show started a long time ago. And if you
wanted a better name, I, personally, would call it the "Cheny Is Smart, And,
In Fact, Smarter Than Everyone Else (Including Aparna) Talk Show."
Aparna: No, actually it should be called
"Aparna is the smartest person in the world and don't believe Cheny because
he is not smart" - that is the best name for our talk show because of
course, it's true!
Cheny: You know, lying is bad for you health [I was implying that
she was lying, if you didn't get that]. That's why YOU should not lie
*ahem*. Let's ask our readers which name is better.
