    A town is offered millions of dollars to change its name to

    If your local city government has budgetary issues, here's a novel idea.

    The owner of a dating website is offering the community of Woodside $11.65 million to change its name to, USA.

    The website’s CEO states “We thought it would be a great way to get the word out about our 10 year anniversary, and to be a permanent part of the rich history of California.”

    If the offer is accepted, Woodside will also have to showcase the Sugardaddie name on the public library and rename the community council. A statue of Playboy executive Hugh Hefner will also have to be placed near the town hall.)

    Woodside authorities haven’t said whether or not they will be considering the name change proposal, but CEO has vowed to find an area in the country to become the “first dating site-sponsored city”.

    Last year, a Texas entrepreneur, Doug Guller, purchased a piece of land in rural Texas and named it after a restaurant chain that he owns called Bikinis. "Bikinis, TX will be a world-class destination, and I am thrilled to expand the Bikinis brand to include town ownership," said Guller.

    He wanted to turn the barren town into a location for annual festivals and events.
