Dad-to-Be's Irrationality Is Gas-Price Induced

Dad-to-Be's Irrationality Is Gas-Price Induced

Gas prices are officially making people irrational. When Floridian David Partin heard the hosts of the Dixon & Willoughby show ask what listeners would do for a $100 gas card, he called the station and told them he'd let the hosts name his unborn child.

Other callers offered things like a stuffed animal collection and house cleaning in a skimpy outfit. The hosts knew they wouldn't receive a better offer than David's, and agreed that he would win the gift card if David and his pregnant girlfriend name their baby Dixon Willoughby Partin.

The gift card won't make its way into David's hands until he produces a birth certificate, but the hosts may get a collection of stuffed animals after all. David is now weighing his options — since the story hit the news he says, "I had some friends and people out there asking what I'd say if they offered us more money for the name."
