    Watchin' you. Writing it all down.
    Just convince your neighbors to change your town name to DISH.

    Satellite television company EchoStar is willing to give away its service to all residents of a lucky town for 10 years. But there's a catch.

    The town must legally (and permanently) rename itself DISH, in honor of the name of EchoStar's service.

    That's actually pretty funny. The satellite signing contest is also pretty clever

    Hmmmm if they sweetened up the deal and added 10 free years of the Spice Channel I'm sure they'd get some takers!!!!
