...far out names

I have to say that I am getting annoyed more and more by stupid people. Especially when it comes to naming their children. I have three incidences that truly "boggle my mind".

1) My mother is an elementary school teacher. The stories I hear from her are so unbelievably idiotic and scary. It amazes me that some people are able to be parents. For example: Every year before school starts the teachers get a list of the children's names that are going to be in their class that year. On my mother's list there were some far out names but nothing like one child's name. His name was pronounced Shatheed... BUT... spelt SHITHEAD. Who in their right mind would spell their child's name S-h-i-t-h-e-a-d? This parent needs to be strung up by their toenails and beaten with a wet noodle.

2) My best friend is also a teacher. A very similar story... she had twin girls in her class... their names were pronounced Reginna and Veginna... BUT... spelt Ragina and VAGINA. Oh my goodness... VAGINA... The parent of this child should have every last pubic hair pulled out individually with a set of scalding hot tweezers.

3) I heard this story from my boss (don't know how true this is). A lady was registering her child for kindergarten. The individual helping this parent register asked her how she pronounced the child's name. The parent stated "FaMolly". The individual then proceeded to ask where did she get the name. The parent stated "The hospital named her for me. They wrote it on her hospital arm bracelet". The child's name was spelt FEMALE. Now this parent should be dropped on her head several more times and then tossed around and then dropped on her head some more.

Is our society this stupid? How can people get away with "scarring" their children for life just because they are so ignorant? Boggling... isn't it?

Oh... and don't even get me started on celebrity baby names. 1. Moon Unit (Frank and Gail Zappa)2. Fifi Trixibelle (Paula Yates and Bob Geldof)3. Satchel (Mia Farrow and Woody Allen)4. Apple (Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin)5. Daisy Boo (Julia and Jamie Oliver)6. Rumer (Demi Moore and Bruce Willis)7. Peaches (Paula Yates and Bob Geldof)8. River (Arlyn and John Phoenix)9. Rocco (Madonna and Guy Ritchie)10. Nell Marmalade (Helen Baxendale and David Eliot)11. Maddox (adopted by Angelina Jolie)12. Tiger Lily Heavenly Hirani (Paula Yates and Michael Hutchence)13. Dweezil (Frank/Gail Zappa)14. Brooklyn (Victoria/David Beckham)15. Eugenie (Sarah Ferguson/Prince Andrew)16. Zowie (Angie and David Bowie)17. Rolan (Gloria Jones and Marc Bolan)18. Phoenix Chi (Mel C and Jimmy Gulzar)19. Coco (Courtney Cox and David Arquette)20. Romeo (Victoria and David Beckham)

What ever happened to George, Jane, Henry, Linda, Ann, William, James, Bob, etc?

Until we meet again....
