Are you really that attached to the beauty of the word "Object"?

If you must use the name Object, you can always delete all the methods 
in Object(note that in ruby 1.9.2 the top class is BasicObject).  But 
'monkey patching' like that can affect the clients of your code--they 
may expect to have ruby's normal functionality available to them.

The easiest thing to do is just misspell Object, e.g. Obgect, Objekt, 
MyObject.
