Google, Yahoo Sued For Stealing Names From Tanzanian Tribes

Another frivolous lawsuit?

...He claims that both Google and Yahoo stole their names from Tanzanian tribes -- and now they should pay up. Specifically, he claims that Google took its name from the Gogo tribe and Yahoo took its name from the Yao tribe. Conveniently, this guy happens to be a descendant of both tribes. He's merely asking for both companies to pay $10,000 each to every member of both tribes, going back three generations...

How do you say "MSN", "" or "Slashdot" in Tanzanian?
