What's in a Name?

The fun little story of how Basil E. Bacorn named Fine Print News:
"It was only a night or two before the launch of Fine Print News, and I was getting annoyed because I couldn't think of the right name for the site. I had been thinking and brainstorming for a week at that point, so I was asking some family what they thought. As we talked, the television was on. Shrek Forever After. Well, it was the scene when Shrek signs the contract with Rumplestiltskin. I groaned and said, 'And that's why you always read the fine print!' I stopped, thought about it, and bought the domain right then and there."
