funny wireless names

Give your neighbor’s a laugh with some of these hilarious wireless network names.

funny wireless namesRedditor AndyWSea had a profound shower thought that touched off a thread of classic Reddit wordplay:

Funny WiFi addresses [sic] are the new funny answering machine messages.

You all remember when answering machines came out, right? Or at least you’ve seen this episode of Seinfeld?

In an era when no one uses the phone anymore (except telemarketers and Robo callers), the wireless network SSID is where you can share your punnery with random neighbors and passers-by. The Reddit thread led to some absolute gems which I’m pretty sure you can steal for your own amusement. Here are some of my favorites:

  1. Boulevard of Broken Streams
  2. Believe it or not, George’s wifi isn’t online
  3. Tell My WiFi Love Her
  4. Darude – LANStorm
  5. C===[::::::::::::::::>
  6. Dialup Internet
  7. No More Mister WiFi
  8. Pretty Fly for a WiFi
  9. Searching…
  10. WhoFi WhatFi WhenFi WhereFi WiFi
  11. AEIOU and sometimes WiFi
  12. A LAN down under

      Yeah – I think that’s my favorite also.
