By Any Other Name

 The first Atomic Bomb was originally codenamed Busboy, but changed at the request of Edward Teller, atomic scientist and part-time busboy. Teller bussed at a bar called The Little Boy Blues Café. Teller spent the last years of his life decoding ancient glyphs he discovered in New Mexico. They hinted at the destruction of the world by a giant, mushroom-headed busmonster, who will “clear the table of the worldfeast,” and “throw away the foodscraps (man) of the Great Badger.”
