What's in a name?

And speaking of books (cuz I was in the last post) I noticed this morning that the Giller Prize is being televised this year. No, wait. Excuse me. The SCOTIABANK Giller Prize is being televised this year. I don't know where to start with this. Is this a comment on awards shows? Is it good news that literary awards are vyeing for attention on the tube (at ten am on a wednesday mind you)? Or is it just retarded that every big fucking sponsorific douchebag company has to use every remaining surface on the planet as letterhead. The fucking Scotiabank Giller Prize.
Jeezus Christ.
