It sucks to have a name that makes other people giggle inside because they can't stop themselves from thinking crude thoughts when they KNOW they should be doing the adult thing and listening to what you're saying.
It sucks even more when events and circumstances collide in such a way that the years of effort you've invested in getting people OFF the track of thinking about all manner of sausages when they hear that your name is "Weiner" - blows up in a millisecond when a crude picture hits your Twitter account.
Of course being the market researchers that we are, we just COULDN'T let this moment go by without asking our audience what they think about Congressman Anthony Weiner's current branding predicament.
TELL US WHAT YOU THINK
