Canon considering axing Rebels
Mar 25, 2013

Rumours from Tokyo indicate that Canon Inc. may be thinking of dumping the Rebel name.

"We always thought it was a bit strange" said a company spokesman "But we had a meeting with a few too many sakis and Canon USA convinced us it was cool."

Canon USA apparently do not agree.  Someone from the office said "Naming a serious camera Rebel was the best thing that ever happened to Canon. It was an inspired choice and Canon would have gone bust if I hadn't suggested that."

He added "None of our customers can remember model numbers so we totally resolved that problem.  Also Andre Agassi did darn well out of it."

This person did show slight irritation when confronted with the fact that Rebels now all have model numbers as well.  "Who gives a toss.  What about Kiss, that's a real shmuck name!"

The spokesman from Tokyo smiled and said "Maybe so.  But nevertheless I still quite like Americans.  Couldn't eat a whole one though."
