Columbus Ohio Changes Its Name To Columbo

(Columbo, OH) In keeping with evolving public sentiment, the former city of Columbus in the state of Ohio today announced it has changed its name to Columbo, Ohio, effective immediately.

Speaking from the steps of City Hall on West Broad Street, Mayor Ginther said this was a great day for Columbo. Representatives of indigenous groups said they were unsure about renaming the city after yet another white male of Italian origin, but conceded that, if that’s how it’s going to be, you couldn’t do any better than the bumbling detective make famous by the late Peter Falk.

“I mean, who doesn’t love Columbo?”

There were some grumblings from locals that Columbo has no connection to the metropolis formerly known as Columbus, but that issue was soon cleared up.

“A quick google search shows the Peugeot driven by Columbo in the NBC series ended up in Ohio after being sold off, which is good enough for us.”

    “Just ONE last thing….” this is SATIRE!

    I do wonder if all these posters are serious or are having their own incredibly satirical laugh of their own on US! Hopefully the later…but probably NOT. 🙄

  4. Just one more thing

  5. The comments here are proof that a scary percentage of people believe as true what their told by the media. THIS media has proclaimed outright that it’s SATIRE! The bread and circuses crowd is alarmingly deceivable. Keep your powder dry……….

  6. The biggest thing we’ve lost in the pst few years is a sense of humor

  7. I have an idea. Why don’t we take down all statues. For get history!!! And I mean all, from black, natively American, etc. then everyone will be happy. What is wrong with people. That would please all the stupid people.

  8. Ginther needs to resign! He is a joke!
    This crap has to stop! Our country is taking a beating!
    Stop the madness!

  9. Are you kidding me? This crap has gone too far!! The more you cowtauw to these ridiculous ideas, the worse it will become. Stop being afraid of ‘words’. Everyone has a history and you can’t erase it by changing words. It’s unfortunate that these things happened hundreds of years ago, and a bad few still partake in the cruelty. We are very sorry that they happened, but changing words is not going to change people’s thoughts and prejudices. We are all equal no matter what color, and the more you dredge prejudices up, the longer it will stay in the forefront. Stop keeping it alive, and don’t change the words. Stupid idea!!

    • Iam a retired combat soldier who fought for this country and couldn’t agree more with Janet ! I grew up in the city streets of Cleveland so I knew nothing of race growing up and then joining the military i knew nothing but the color green and the red white and blue. While I understand the pain and anguish the black community has had to endure over hundreds of years , we are not hundreds of years old. Erasing our history doesn’t change anything, matter of fact it is erasing the history of alot of black mens lives who fought for this country and their freedom , who started a movement a long time ago . I dont know what is happening to this world anymore , but its not good !

    • “Everyone has a history and you can’t erase it by changing words” says the person who just invented “cowtauw”

      You told me not to be afraid of words, but that’s scaring the hell out of me. 🤣🤣🤣

  10. This should have been voted on by the people of Columbus and not an impulsive decision from a moron!

    I for one am not recognizing such an absurd decision. The mayor can decide anything he wants to. Doesn’t mean we have to agree with him
