When I was a kid, I had a neighbor who gave birth to twin boys. She and her husband were determined to treat them as individuals, and refused to do anything cute, such as dressing them alike. They even refused to give them rhyming names or names that begin with the same letter, instead giving them the simple names of Patrick and Matthew.

When they registered them for pre-school years later, they were crestfallen when the registrar said, "Matt and Pat! How cute!"

The late Harry Hole was a prominent citizen of Edmonton. No, I'm not making this up.

It reminds me of the Chevy Chase movie where he was put in a cell with Ben Dover. Ouch

I girl I went to school with, had the Chinese last name of Ohno. Her Chinese father wanted to name her after his Grandmother. Luckily her Anglo mother convinced him otherwise. Her name would have been "Shegai Ohno".

Nothing I've read yet beats the guy in charge of the S.A.M. named Richard Blowers!

I believe that my good friend Mike Miller is the SAM president now.

Good for him! I've been out of the S.A.M. loop for far too long. However, Mr. Blowers was in charge at the time that I was a member. I have a copy of the MUM that has him on the cover, they even used his nickname. God! This guy must've gone through 7734 (turn your monitor upside down) in school!

I had a teacher in elementary school named Mrs. Lipschitz . . . you can't get any funnier in a fourth graders's scale of humor.

I have a fourth grader's mentality, and still find the name quite funny.

We've had this conversation before, so I've said this before: in Germany there are many, many names which would have been changed in Anglo Saxon culture. It remains a mystery to me. Every variation of the F word, for example, can be found in the local phone book.

(In fact, if you live in a city in the US with a lot of people with German ancestry, they're probably in YOUR phone book, too.)

And again I'll tell this story, because while I've told it before it remains amusing to me:

There was a wedding announcement in the local paper about ten years ago for a couple whose last names were **** and ******. Now, it is very common in Germany for the woman to hyphenate her last name. So the woman's name today is ****-******.

HA HA HA HA!

I bet there's something really funny lurking behind those asterisks.

How about these:

I used to think that some of those wedding announcements are jokes. Then when a friend died some of us bought one of those condolence notices or whatever they're called, and that darned thing was EXPENSIVE.

So if the Traylor-Hooker notice is a joke, it was an expensive one.
