I found both ‘Thomas Wanker’ and ‘Brian Wankum’ on the credits to an old Buffy the Vampire Slayer I was watching today.

Yesterday I was reading in Dark Sky, Deep Water by historian Norman Franks, about the anti U-boat war 1940-45.

There was a Flight-Lieutenant L.T. Cobbledick, pilot of a Mark VI ‘TseTse’ Mosquito, HJ828 ‘K’ of 248 Squadron RAF Coastal Command. He was part of a sorty that was searrching for U-155.

Not so much funny names as ironic:

My music teacher was Mrs. Organ.

A sex-ed speaker was Miss Aids.

My geography teacher was called Miss Wood.

Not ironic, but my old form tutors name was mr. garlick, which we had a laugh over when we were in year 7 (11 years old)

Okay, so their not the greatest, but they are all true!

One of the guys that worked on ‘Finding Nemo’ is called Phred Lender.
It was the ‘Phred’ that made me laugh.

Here is the text of a story about that poor Drew Peacock Kid that Sharruma mentioned….

Parents think twice over son’s ‘rude name’

  October 02 2004 at 02:47PM

A Bedford couple named their baby son Drew Peacock before realising that it sounded quite rude.

The baby’s father, Russell, said he only twigged it when he put it in an Internet search engine looking for famous namesakes, and was asked: “Do you mean Droopy C**k?”

“It was as if I’d been smacked with a right hook. I started repeating ‘Drew Peacock’ over and over again. Then I thought - what have we done?

“I went numb and couldn’t speak for two minutes. Then I couldn’t stop laughing.”

Mother Shetal Patel had also failed to spot their error despite being a registrar’s assistant, says The Sun.

She said: “I thought Russell had seen a ghost when he came away from the computer. We decided on the name a month before he was born - we both loved it straight away.”

The couple are now concerned that Drew’s name will cause him problems in later life.

Russell said: “People at work are already saying, ‘Hey, look there’s Droopy’s dad’. But we don’t want to change his name. It’s on his birth certificate and other documents.” -

...If they changed it, the NEW name would be on the birth certificates and other documents.

A person I had to input to our database today had the surname ‘Zyw’.
I have no idea how to pronounce that.
