    Damn, people are stupid.

    By the time I have a kid it'll be unique enough to call him Steven.
     
  2. Settle for Steyv'n to fit in? Better yet, Stevynnne if you have a girl?

    You should change your username to Jarryd. Or J'Arryyd.

    Apostrophe abuse would be an offence punishable by death if I was king.
     
  10. My wife had a patient come in. When she looked at his chart before going in the room the name was Gmoney. Now this being a large hospital with MANY foriegn patiant she thought it might be french or some thing. Maybe pronouced something like Gem-on-ie. So she goes in and this girl who didnt look old enough to even have a kid snaps at my wife and says( No b**ch it's G money you better respect my little pimps name).

    I kid you not!

    "I just figured you were big Pinocchio fans but too dumb to spell Jiminy correctly"

    As a side note, why is always the most disrespectful people that demand that other people respect them?

    I come from Minnesota, and was born during the Kennedy administration.

    Not only did ever class I was ever in have a bunch of "Johns," "Kathys," "Marks" and "Marys," I have had at least TEN friends named "Mike Olson."

    I remember being aware of the "Ashley" phase of the early eighties, but it has long since spiraled out of control. I was OK with Black People reconnecting with their roots, and enjoy names like "Jamaal," or other such ethnicities. But my niece recently dated a wimpy looking white kid named "Jagger," who didn't know a thing about the Rolling Stones.

    If I ever have a kid of my own, I'm going to name him "Pancreas."

    I'm not ever having kids. But if I did, I would name a boy Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho. A girl would be called Cla' Media Shampayne.
