Just one of those things. You live in a country where they don't speak your native language. Your parents give you a name which in your old homeland is a great and magnificent name-a name you can be proud of-only to find out that in your new country, your name is a joke. Happens all the time, both on a personal level and in product naming. I suspect some of us might have an English name that in some Urdu or Hindi or Malay dialect sounds like their word for 'Deflowerer of Young Male Goats' or some such.
And sometimes you get a name because your parents a) didn't like you or b) heard Johnny Cash sing 'A Boy Named Sue' one time too many and thought giving their kids some funky name will make them tough. Perhaps they should have thought this through. Those kids do, after all, pick their parents' nursing homes.
So let's see what names got dropped here, shall we?
Actually, this wouldn't be funny if it were in the Pinyin transliteration used by the PRC. Well, maybe it would...
When Star Wars fanatics have children! Strong the Force is in this one. Picked on mercilessly in school he will be...
You have to admit, this catches the eye when you're driving by.
And popular, with that much experience! Just like my rejoinder when in St. Louis and the drunken inbred Cardinal fans yell 'Cubs suck!'.
'Yeah? Well, the Cardinals swallow!'
Then we run as fast as the local gravity field will allow us to perambulate.
Only a Dick would do this to his kid.
I see this guy doing a variation of Hyacinth's routine from 'Keeping Up Appearances':
"It's pronounced Fuh-ZHOH!"
And her mother back in the old country showed her to friends and neighbors, saying "Would you like to see Mahboobeh?", blissfully unaware that in the English-speaking world, that remark would be followed by a snicker!
Didn't KISS do a song about this guy? 'They call him Mister Love...'. No, wait. That's 'Dr. Love'.
Sorry. With a guy named Mister Love, I don't want to link to Yello. I GOTTA link to Yello!!
She was in the first Austin Powers movie, wasn't she? Sure. Natal'ya Vagina! I remember her.
Actually, I think Natal'ya Vagina married former Twins and Tigers outfielder Rusty Kuntz. That'll take care of that silly maiden name!
I do remember Rusty. The name was pronounced 'Coontz'. You know he took a lot of crap anyway.
I'll vote for a guy named 'Loser'. It's the guy named 'Taxraiser' that would worry me.
What do you bet this guy has brothers named Dick, Percy, and Wally?
I think I'd change that last name to 'Abadass' if I came here to live.
I appreciate the warning, and will tip large. Because I personally don't swing that way!
Now this guy, on the other hand, aced the whole name thing!
Batman bin Suparman: greater than Chuck Norris and Shatner in those Priceline commercials!
