Zombee's are an actual scientific thing.

I'll agree with the "It doesn't matter WTF they name it, it's a solid disc" line of thought. Seriously, people will pull a disc because of the name? How ****ing much of a tool are you to pull a good disc because of a bad name? That's like people saying they won't throw anything that isn't Discraft or Innova. Unless they sponsor you, you do not have to be that big of a tool/retard.

About as much of a tool as the person that named the disc.

I agree with your basic premise, but the days are here of having many good disc choices to fill just about any niche you may have in your bag. If I liked two discs equally and one had a super cheesy name and the other one had a name I felt neutral about which do you think I'd choose?

I thought the Nuke was a pretty stupid name, but Zombee really ups the ante. It may be the worst name of the modern era of DG.

I remember reading about zombie bees earlier this summer. Totally forgot about it until now!

I don't know about the name but I know there are some other discs made that have some incredibly stupid names. The Flow comes to mind as that is what my ex calls her time of the month. Dominator? Please, that disc does not dominate

I'm sorry, Dominator is such a great name (only cool if it's in black patent leather). So is Tee-Rex and Tee-Devil."Lace" is a horrible name, but I bet they sell out. Discraft does not in any way hold a monopoly for stupidly naming discs.

and I second the Flow, and Villian is pretty lame too
