    After seeing a plentiful amount of hilariously bad item renames in the Fresh Meat thread, I feel the topic is worthy enough for it's own thread.
    Whether it's something you found on a random server, an unfortunate victim of the free name/description tags given out at Smissmas or something your friend has which you can't help but share, post away here.
    Try to keep content original though, try to post something everyone hasn't seen a million times. Plus this thread is for noteworthy renames, not just "Show off all your renamed items because this is a rename thread." You can post something you have if it's relevant to conversation, but don't spam the thread with a dozen links to your backpack on TF2B.

    I still love my Dead Ringer name/desc.
    The Konami Code
    +30 lives


    Don't have a screenshot of it, but a Medigun rename I liked was "Nice job getting shot".
    When they healed me the text would pop up and I'd do the "thanks" voice command.

    The only named item I have that I really like is:
    which is a reference to:

    My first nametag was used to make this:

    a day or so after nametags came out.

    One of the worst nametagged items I have seen is this:

    of which I have seen so many variations of and so many times.

    Believe it or not, a Name Tag was my very first item drop. And, I cannot say I used it well.

    I used it on a basic pistol, and called it 'Vera'. Good reference, bad item choice.

    Here's what I spent my christmas tags on. Worth it, yah or nah?



    All the kills were made after the marked for death attribute was added, by the way.

    This is my only renamed item. Thinking about naming or describing my Strange Direct Hit (1600 kills), something about how I still can't aim with the damn thing.

    Here is a few of my favorites from my collection. Because Imgur is being a complete ass, I just made an album of them -.-. Sorry, I tried to make it nice and neat for you all.

    Compared to many of the other renames I've made ages ago, this is probably the only one I'm satisfied with.

    Rated Winner just for that. I've got a S. BFB and a Name Tag, so I might just duplicate it.
