What's in a name

The Madoff scandal is hilarious of course. All those investors? Hear that - that's the smallest violin in the world playing for those gullible idiots who've lost dealing with this fraudster. But then again, the whole last eight years has been a scam. In France, all the news outlets were pronopuncing the buffoon's name as "Made-off". Too good to be true of a name - a week or so later, and the directive from on high has enforced the less revealing MAdoff [sic] in their attempts to normalise the robbery.
