    Unfortunate names - MUST be people

    you actually know...

    John Eader - not that crazy but when he joined the Navy he became Seaman Eader. Unfortunate.

    I bought some land from Harry Ball. Unfortunate.

    For you russian speakers - when I was in Air Force language school our instructors would giggle whenever my classmate - Dave Minet (pronounced minyet) - was mentioned. The last several days of our school were devoted to russian profanity (russians take cursing to another level). Anywhoo - Minyet in russian is sexual act involving mouth attention to boy parts... Unfortunate...

    Dick Trickle - legendary NASCAR driver. He must have had it rough growing up.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Re: Unfortunate names - MUST be people

    Basketball coach in grade school. Dick Point, unfortunate... rumors often went around that his middle name was Les, never found out if that one was true.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Unfortunate names - MUST be people

    When I was in my teens I worked at DSM Golf & CC. There was only 1 black married couple that were members.

    Any guesses what their names were? Believe it or not they were "The Whites".

    Always gave me a chuckle when I thought about it.

    Re: Unfortunate names - MUST be people

    My brother has a list of really awful names he got while working summers at Principal Financial. Some guy there had collected them. I can only remember 3 off the top of my head:

    Ima Pigg -- and her sister

    Lotta Pigg -- and

    Harry Dick.

    Now what parents would give their kids names like that.

    I met a big guy a couple years ago whose first name is Helen, can't remember his last name, but that had to be brutal growing up.

    I take my daughter to a dermatologist named Dr. Love -- not a studly guy.
