A psychiatrist was conducting a group therapy session with four young mothers and their small children. He observed, "You all have obsessions." To the first mother, he said, "You are obsessed with eating. You've even named your daughter Candy." He turned to the second mom. "Your obsession is money. Again, it manifests itself in your child's name, Penny. He turned to the third mom, " Your obsession is alcohol. It manifests itself in your child's name, Brandy." At this point, the fourth mother got up, took her little boy by the hand and whispered, "Come on, Dick, we're going home."

ya know.. it always boggled my mind why someone with a nice name like Richard would choose to go by "Dick".
However... I must say in High School we had a good laugh... My JV Basketball coach's name was Dick Ball. :roll: (no really... it was!)
The story gets a little more unbelievable when I tell you that one of the other JV coaches was Knute Rockne... (no really... he was! -- his grandfather was the famous Notre Dame coach... and he was named after him)

I used to know a girl whose last name was Cotton. Her first name was Candy.
I kinda hope she changed her last name when she got married.

I knew a couple where the wife's name was Maria Jose (Mary Joseph) and the husband's name was Jose Maria (Joseph Mary). In a country where everything is either male or female (no neuter gender words), I thought that was very strange.

There was a girl named Virginia; Virgin for short, but not for long.

Ahhh! Jesus. I thought you went up and never came back. Do you still see what I do behind closed doors? :roll:


If you are not laughing at yourself, then you just didn't get the joke.

In the village where I was born, there was a family whose last name was "Bleie", the local word for diaper/nappy. They called their daughter Rosa, which means pink in the same language. Poor girl!
