The name Ice-T just isn’t cool anymore

October 28, 2004

If you’ve been watching Law and Order recently, you’ve probably seen that Ice-T is one of the main characters. I don’t really have a positive or negative opinion of this guy, but I must state that the name Ice-T just isn’t cool anymore. I understand that at one point it was considered hip to name yourself after a frosty beverage, but sadly, times have changed.

While I can’t pinpoint the exact time of the downfall of names that include the word ice, I do think we’ve all reached an inarguable consensus. I’m willing to admit that sometimes a person doesn’t know when they’ve carried something too far, (like people who still wear denim jackets) and it is difficult for them to make a change. Maybe Ice-T is waiting for a drastic career change that would redefine him as a more serious person, thus sparking the need to alter his name to one that isn’t a decade out of style.

I know hindsight is 20/20, but perhaps joining a nationally syndicated legal drama would have been the opportune time.
