Our current team name was created by our co-founder, Liz the Red, back when we started out in 2008. She picked it because she likes the movie Duck Soup by the Marx Brothers.
These days I kinda feel it's a bit of an artifact name, since most of us aren't fans of and haven't seen Duck Soup. (Before our first Mystery Hunt I really did organize a showing of the movie.)
Should we change our name?
We were known as "Duck Soup on Troper Steroids" one year, the first year I got TV Tropes involved. Since then we've been using this separate website, and our team consists roughly of current and former tropers and friends, plus some MIT alums I know who were part of the original on-campus team but have since graduated.
If we get a new name, got any ideas?
Note: Since we know our webmaster, we can easily get all the corresponding stuff changed, like the name of this website, the name of the e-mail list, the favicon for this site, etc..
