(Newser) – From this day forth, all-first born children of Duluth, Minnesota, shall be named Google or Googlette Fiber. Well, that’s not true, but the city has produced a parody video saying so in a rejoinder to Topeka. That city changed its name to Google in an effort to secure the search giant’s offer of super-fast Internet. (See Topeka summary here.) To be fair, Mashable reports, Duluth also really wants the service, even if it’s not actually going all Old Testament to get it.
