If you’re Hungarian, your prime minister has been caught on tape admitting that he’s lied and his administration “screwed up,” and protestors demanding his ouster are descending on the capital city in violent riots, what’s your first move? 

Join the protestors? Take a long trip to Prague? How about secure the rights to Web domain “elkurtuk.hu,” “WeScrewedup.com” in Hungarian? Three Hungarians are duking it out over ownership rights to the newly fashionable address, possibly to post the video of the prime minister’s unfortunate admission. Probably to profit from the traffic that is certain to follow, assuming the Hungarian agency charged with handing them out will even allow it.

It’s good news that Hungarians are fully embracing the benefits they might garner from postcommunist free markets. May the best capitalist win!
