America Online Gets A Sex Change, Still Looks Like a Man

America Online Inc has officially renamed itself AOL, following TimeWarner Inc’s renaming of its internet component to Time Warner Cable.

America Online Inc. bought Time Warner in 2001 and made AOL-TimeWarner Inc. As ISP biz dropped, the subsidiary lost the AOL from its name and became Time Warner.

Kentucky Fried Chicken recently rebranded itself as KFC. After that had time to settle through a few campaign cycles, it busted out as “Kitchen Fresh Chicken.”

Perhaps AOL will transform to: “AAAAAAAHHHH OMG LOLSOSSLOW!”
