"It's the family name, son. Try to live up to it."

I don't know what else to say. Just read it.

Thank you, Webhill!

I wonder if the headline is the result of a bet in the newsroom. The folks who handle web content for that station seem to be semi-literate at best so I can imagine the writers "testing" to see if the headline would fly. Fly it did, like an eagle.

I know a guy named Jim Penix. Few people in his social circle know his real name; he goes by a nickname except in employment activities. Best damned tatoo artist in the world. Sorry I lost track of him, now that I want a very tiny one.

I have known a number of people with unfortunate last names. Butt, Cockburn, Peniston. Nobody named Moron though. At least his name isn't R3tard.

His picture bears the family resemblance, but I didn't realize that they had a branch in that area, I thought they only lived in my neighborhood.

Haha, surely this is like Bart Simpson's pranks. When things seem too good to be true, I usually think they are.

BTW, oldMDgirl, there is a fantastic port label also called Cockburn, and the English (British) pronounciation is Co-burn (as in co-ed). Doesn't make it sound as silly as 'a cupful of cockburn'!

My husband used to work as customer service manager for an online company that ships nationally and internationally. He used to keep a list of unfortunate names that came across his screen.

HEADLINE OF THE MONTH.

Seriously, you know they had to have done it on purpose. They could have said, "Police searching for stalker" or something.

I want to know whether or not his wife took her husband's name when they got married.

does anyone else believe that two first names as a patient name, or two last names- not hyphen type- are bad luck? i do. bitter experience.

With a name like that, is it really surprising he turned to crime?

Never has there been a more aptly named felon.

There is an ICD-9 code for "moron" - 317. It was an antiquated term for mild mental retardation, IQ 50 - 70.

If the ICD-9 code fits....

and what does his wife say? "Woe is me; I married a M*"..."My whole family told me told me not to marry a M*" Or she yells at him: "Why are you doing this? Are you a M*?"
