Breaking news: Ol' Dirty Bastard was never Young Dirty Bastard

Rap star Ol' Dirty Bastard was never "Young Dirty Bastard" or simply "Dirty Bastard," the Snooze Button Generation has learned through extensive Internet research.

Apparently, ODB took his stage name from a 1980 kung-fu movie titled "Ol' Dirty & the Bastard" and was all of a sudden an Ol' Dirty Bastard instead of a Dirty Bastard who grew old. ODB arguably was never a real old bastard because he died of a drug overdose in 2004, two days before his 36th birthday.

As a father of two daughters, I imagine ODB's moniker presented difficulties with dating. If my daughters ever dated someone called "Ol' Dirty Bastard," that might raise an eyebrow for his intentions. Now, I don't mean to be judgmental or jump to conclusions, but as a dad, the name could be seen as negative on the dating circuit.Many people debate exactly who was the best, or most popular, member of the Wu-Tang Clan. Ol' Dirty Bastard could very well be the answer, but he is going against Method Man, Rza, Gza and Ghostface Killah. I suppose I'd prefer my daughter to date someone named Ghostface Killah as opposed to Ol' Dirty Bastard, though I might have a sweet spot in my heart for ODB's dental woes.
