The Village People Need to Update Their Hit Song Now After MCA Gets Downsized

It used to be the Young Men’s Christian Association, but lately it hasn’t really been particularly Christian and so it became known by the shortened acronym: The Y.M.C.A.

And now because nobody really knows what the Y.M.C.A does, aside from offer affordable gym memberships and pools to pee in, the organization is going after a bit of the ole re-branding, where it will (until it changes again) be referred to as just “the Y.”

“We’re trying to simplify how we tell the story of what we do, and the name represents that,” Neil Nicoll, president and chief executive of the organization, told the New York Times.

The Y was the organization’s shortened colloquial nickname, so henceforth, I’m going to refer to it as “the motorcycle dude.”  Anyone else can take Indian Guy, Construction Worker, Cowboy, etc.
