What Sucks..."The Shack"
Things can’t be looking too good for Radio Shack if re-naming the place “The Shack” is what’s passing for an idea to get excited about. And yeah, I understand it may be difficult to come up with a cooler version of your name when the two words that make up that name are “Radio” (an obsolete wasteland except for people who want to be told to go out and fight for the rights of the health insurance industry) and “Shack”, but still. This is like “Poo-Poo”, changing its name to “Poo”.
If I’m a stockholder in “Radio Shack”, I’m firing whoever told me to buy that stock! The Shack? That’s your new marketing campaign? How’d you come up with the name- trying to honor the place where anyone with ownership in the company will soon be moving to?
Hey Radio Shack, you lasted a lot longer than anyone would have thought selling wires, go out with some dignity!

Congrats, a-holes, changing the name of Radio Shack to “The Shack” may finally bring about the goal you dickwads seem to have had all these years- of killing off Radio Shack.
You must have been so upset after that huge campaign you did where you decided that Howie Long and Teri Hatcher were fucking did not destroy you- and even more upset when the suggestion that Ving Rhames and Vanessa L. Williams were fucking couldn't kill it either.
Well, calling the place “The Shack” might have done it, congrats.
