IT'S TIME FOR A DICKING

Bungie only has six letters in it. I think they should change their name to Bungiee. It's a big difference, I know, but I feel it is neccessary.

Thoughts?

It was the product of some dirty joke, apparently.

It's the punchline of a joke. Which is top secret.

Don't animals have free will? They are free too make choices as well?

It's actually a pretty common joke, surprisingly. It has quite a number of forms as well. I saw a youtube video a couple days ago using the same joke, except they had used a different ambiguous word instead of "Bungie".

Three guys are walking through a jungle when they are caught and taken prisoner by a savage tribe. The tribe chief says to the first man, "I will give you two choices. Death, or bungie."
The man, not knowing what 'bungie' was, decided to choose that, because anything could be better than death. So the tribe proceeded to sodomize him repeatedly, for over an hour until he could barely walk. He stumbled away in tears as the other two men watched in horror.

The chief asks the second man, "Death, or bungie?" The man was horrified by what he had seen, but still would rather not die. He chose bungie, and the tribe proceeded to sodomize him even more viciously than the first man, for hours and hours, leaving him permanently crippled. He dragged himself away, sobbing.

The chief asked the last man, "Death or bungie?" The man decided that anything could be better than this 'bungie', even death. "I choose death!" the man exclaimed, bravely. The chief smiled. "Very well. Death.. by bungie!"

note: sodomizing is to have butt sex, if you didn't know that.

Uuuh, do I have to choose?

There are many powers in the world, for good or for evil. Some are greater than I am. Against some I have not yet been measured. But my time is coming.

It's kind of like an insider. From what I understand, it was a punchline of a dirty joke.

But the question here really is: Why does is anything called what it is?
