Congratulations If You Had "Metta World Peace" In The Ron Artest Name-Change Office Pool

Ronald William "Ron" Artest, Jr. has apparently filed some paperwork with the Los Angeles County Superior Court. In it, Mr. Artest seeks to legally change his name to Metta World Peace. It remains unclear if he'll go by Metta or World. Now, "metta" is essentially "The Philosophy and Practice of Universal Love" or "loving kindness."

Of course, The Artist Formerly Known As Ron-Ron may have actually meant "Meta," and if he did, that would just be a mindfuck the likes of which is rarely seen.
