This thread seemed to go over pretty well the last time I posted it, but it was pruned a while back, so let's try it again.

Most everybody hates at least one dub title (personally, I hate almost all of them), so this thread is for you to vent your frustration by thinking up new names for the episodes whose current titles you detest the most. I'll get the ball rolling with my completely redesigned American Season 1. For added fun, see if you can guess the pop culture references.

Turning the only good titles of the show into bad puns. You should be ashamed!!! I'd rename all the pun titles because I hate puns in anime titles.
