I have seen this a lot and think it is funny.

"FBI Surveillance van" and "hack this Bro!" come to mind.

I'm thinking of changing my wifi access point name to: seriouslyyouneedtochangeyourwifiname
Mine is 'whatareyoulookingat'

If you think that is bad one of my neighbors keeps changing his to the names of deceased celebrities plus some other off humor term. I guess some people just like to keep the neighbors wondering what they are thinking. LOL

Should just keep the wifi name hidden. It is getting easier and easier to crack wifi codes these days ...

Is it "FBI Surveillance Van"? That's a popular one.
Hah! That exact one shows up on my home wireless access points as well. I just laughed - shows one of my neighbors has a sense of humor. What's funny is after it showed up, several others changed theirs to funny names. One became "HeyBoysMyLegsAreWideOpen". I have mine set to not broadcast.
