Those damned Names

What's Mallard raving about today?

Baby Names

45 words, just to make fun of someone's unusual name. Bravo. Haven't been exposed to something that witty since the 2nd grade. Your parents must be so proud.

Also Mallard, not very high up on the list, due to the fact that it's just a kind of duck and even more importantly everybody hates you.

Bristol. Piper. Track. Willow. Trig.

I'll bet if he was named "UNENDING MEGA WAR" Bruce would think it was awesome.

When was "Bruce" popular? BTW, Brucie, "Bill" has been in the top 5 to 20 names for 150 years, so I guess that means...I'm better than you? I have no idea what that means, nor do I care. And THAT makes me better than you.

Had to Google it.

"In 2008, Artest appeared in a video promoting companion animal spaying and neutering for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals entitled "Have the balls to spay or neuter your dog."

"He has become involved in advocacy relating to mental health issues. In December 2010, he announced that he would donate some or all of his salary for the 2011–12 NBA season toward mental health awareness charities. Artest also auctioned off his 2009–10 championship ring and donated the proceeds to various mental health charities nationwide.

"'Changing my name was meant to inspire and bring youth together all around the world,' World Peace said in a statement released after the name change court hearing. His publicist, Courtney Barnes, said that World Peace chose Metta as his first name because it is a traditional Buddhist word that means loving kindness and friendliness towards all."

Well, no wonder he provokes you to speak truth to power, Big Tipper. He's funnier than you, and he tries to help others despite his personal problems. What a monster! I can totally understand why you went after a black athlete rather than (as Bill noted above) Sarah Palin.

I wonder how "Dagny" ranks in that list.

"Blessed are the peacemakers" said Jesus.

I'm sure Brews Tinsley thinks that's funny!

My name never cracks the top ten. It must therefore be amusing. How I wish I'd been aware of this before. Instead of being bored at times, I could have just thought of my name and had a merry old laugh.

When I was growing up, every hairdresser that my mother went to was called "Mr. Bruce". Not that there's anything wrong with it, but hey, I bet Brucie Woosie Dew Drops thinks there is.

At least he didn't get a dorky lame-ass first name like "Willard."

@Bill the Splut: Ooooh, I just thought of some fun I could have with a certain '70s movie poster...
