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.

Recently in my corner of the world
the two major supermarket chains have started buying out gas stations and outsourcing the staff to an agency that seems to only employ Indians. I don't have a problem with that, but being a dominantly English-speaking culture here, some of the names are a source of amusement. It's childish but the two that made me chuckle the most were Harshit and Prashit.

My second story comes from when I was in high school. Our economics teacher was off sick so we had a relief teacher for the lesson. This guy was a very large (fat) man with a large, round, bright-red face, a permanent scowl and an air of a man who hates young people.

We'd seen him around before but when he introduced himself as Mr Jackass we all tried (to varying degrees of success) to stifle our laughs. It was like the scene from The Life of Brian. Then the self proclaimed Mr Jackass sat down heavily on the (normally sturdy) school chair which promptly disintegrated, throwing the man onto his well padded ass and back. Mayhem ensued.
