This is a question People with Stupid Names

There are hundreds of unfortunate people out there with silly names desparately coping with the evil their parents perpetrated upon them at birth.

So far, I've met a woman called Rusty Tharp, a child health consultant called Peter Files and have the business card for "Fab Boolaky" on my desk.

We'd like you to tell us about the people you've met or work with that have silly, inappropriate or frankly wierd names.

Silly names...
If you ever investigate the cornish language, you'll find several words that when applied to names brings a whole new meaning to Arts and Entertainment...

To give you an idea, here's three:
1) Cal (Penis)
2) Pen (Head)
3) Bram (Fart)

So, things like "Bram Stoker's Dracula" takes on a new meaning... You can imagine my reaction in a Toronto cinema this summer when a trailer came on and a big booming narrator mentioned the film starred "Kal Penn".

Laugh? I cried for 10 minutes and so did everyone else about 20 feet around me when I managed to stop laughing and share the joke with them...

(Before anyone says it, I know it's "Pen Cal" in cornish - but it's still damn funny)
