Weird ATI RV600 series codenames

The Inq writes ATI has made up a couple of silly codenames for three upcoming DirectX 10 chips that are expected in 2007.
The first one is codenamed RV610 or, as the engineers codenamed it, Bum. The second one is RV630, or engineering codename Shaka, and the last one RV660 is codenamed Laka.

When you put these three codenames together you get Bum Shaka Laka, which is, of course, richly amusing. Who said that engineers don't have the sense of humour?
