Okay, I keep a list of funny names. It's not that long because they have to be names that I come across in my regular day -- NOT names that I ganked from some other list or saw in News of the Weird, or looked up on purpose. |
One of the first names that made my list was when I was temping when I first came down to Maryland. As receptionist, I answered the phone, asked who was calling and got "This is Joy at Quality Screw". Me, too!
I had to send an e-mail recently to a woman whose last name is: Holewinski. Wow. Middle school must have been difficult. Difficult as well for Holly Beeotcher, who, I hope, was at least a cheerleader.
Rhonda Earenfight, a local real estate agent...I just think Earenfight is funny.
And we had to take down one of our Halloween tombstones: Anita Goodman. (Say it out loud, realizing that we are all about the bad pun.) Because we actually have a local real estate agent whose name is...Anita Goodman. Which is fun enough -- but then I got a mailer that she's partnering with another real estate agent named...Ruth Gay Horney. Really. I kid you not. The Real Estate Firm of Anita Goodman and Ruth Gay Horney. Well, you see THAT on a For Sale sign and I suppose you'll remember whose listing it is. Especially if your brain still harbors in inner 10 year old.
