I recently found out that my great grandfather was an Irishman from Cork by the last name of "Kearney".

I was speaking the other day to a woman with that same last name, and, although I don't know if it is the "official" pronunciation, she kept saying it "Carny".

So, it seems I'm a Carny by birth.

Pronunciation varies all around. In the Boston area there is a town called Peabody. In Philly, Temple University has a Peabody hall.

In Boston, they say "Pih-buddy"

Everywhere else in the world, it's said "PEE-body"

Congrats on being a real carny.

The city in Nebraska is spelled that way but pronounced "Carny". I know, I had the girlfriend from Hades for years, and she hailed from there.

Curiouser and curiouser. I found out last night that my father worked the milk bottle game at the carnival in his youth and, as a result, ended up a bit of a sideshow enthusiast.

Just kinda interesting to me, since I've only really known the man for about the last year.

You come to a point in your life when you really don't care what people think about you, you just care what you think about yourself.
