    Maybe call it the Idiot Variation of the Sicilian Defence?

    Isn't that specifically the line in post 18?

    OP, Don't you realize you look at UKR-ch U10 Girls game? I will call it "Silly Sicilian" opening. Hope that is not too harsh. Maybe a little bit subtle is "Drunken Queen Sicilian". Or maybe more popular is "f3 Sicilian" where f3 stands for "fool fool and fooler".

    1.e4, c5 is always a sicilian, no matter what happens next.

    Not necessarily...

    for example, 1.e4 c5 2.d4 e6 3.e5 d5 4.c3 becomes an advance French defence.

    That's the old treatment - now they prefer 4.Bxf7+ Nxf7 5.??? the so-called "Britney Spears variation"
