Not that my blogging sabbatical is over, but with a little time and a little motivation (and trust me, not much of either) I thought I'd blow off stuff that I almost blogged about but didn't. It took all the restraint that I could muster up NOT to comment on the recent story that Mike Hunt supports the Lady Toppers
, since the jokes just write themselves. Then the story about the convicted sex offender Pheuk Kue
broke and again I was tempted.
But they say it isn't wise to hold things in so why not look at a few of the names that make me titter like a teen? Although I'm sure that they were teased unmercifully while they were growing up it looks like both Dr. Harry Beaver
and Dr. Dick Tapper, Urologist
were able to overcome the taunts and achieve success. The same can be said of Dick Pound
, although that's one Google Image Search
that I was really, really afraid to do. Surprisingly, no content that you would consider NSFW until six pages into the search. The same can't be said for the real estate agent Dick Long
, but I'd probably list my house with him just so I could have one of his signs on my front lawn!
Of course you can't ignore the world of sports where you've got one of the legends of hockey
, a NASCAR driver
and some baseball players
who get added to the list.
And while you're at it, consider some of The 22 Worst Place Names in the World
and be glad you don't live there!
