This item isn't really newsworthy, but it is amusing. Today, I had lunch with Mr. and Mrs. Stupid Monkey Planet, and the topic of dumb baby names came up. Mrs. Monkey was kind enough to pass along the link, and now I'm sharing it with you.
Sidebar: Everybody knows of a bunch of people with silly names (you're probably thinking of some right now), and here are a few acquaintances I know off the top of my head. . .
Carl and Carol Christmas, Autumn Dawn Sowers, Roxanne Stone (a music teacher), Joanne Butcher Kitchen (a home ec. teacher), Horizontal Linguine, Hazel Nutt, Wishonna Star, Star Castle, Sharon Oliver, Sharon Seaman, Auggie Orsey and last but not least, Dick Fitzer. Now, on with the story!
