    Chinese couple name their baby son Saddam SARS
    May 13 2003

    A couple in China have named their baby son Saddam SARS to mark the two important events taking place at the time of his birth, a news report said today.

    The boy was born on March 20, the day the Iraq war broke out and at a time when alarm over the SARS outbreak was spreading across China.

    His parents, from Hubei, have named the boy Saddam Deng SARS, the South China Morning Post reported. Deng is the parent's family name.

    I hereby declare that my firstborn shall be named 'Chicago-area-hazing Hikerguy-hacks-own-arm-off Cook'.

    for getting such publicity? or perhaps for punishing his parents in a cruel and unusual way for giving him such a ridiculous name?

    whatever. I think it's embarrassingly* stupid to name your kid after 2 of the most horrible things going on in the world right now.

    *embarrassing to be part of the same species as someone who would do such a cruel thing to their kid.
     
  8. How do you get to read the Sydney Morning Herald?

    Or, rather:

    WHY do you read OUR papers? Aren't American papers good enough for you?


    :D j/k, brother.










    How strange. I'd hate it if my parents did something as stupid as that.

    But then again, they might have called me Jaco. (see profile)

    Well I have this little ritual every morning where I get up and drink coffee as I read every single newspaper in the world.

    It's a real pain getting them delivered to my house. You should see the piles when I go out of town for a couple of days.

    ps - In reality though the article was linked from www.drudgereport.com
     
  10. Wow, very original name. They must LOVE their child a lot for choosing such a great name. The kid's destiny is bound for celebrity, without any doubt... :rolleyes:

    He'll get on Letterman... just like Dick Assman did.
     
  15. Great, so if I had a child born today I'd have to call her "Light News Day Branley"

    be even worse if I was home in rural Somerset right now, "Local Tractor Stolen Branley"
     
  16. Nope, not kidding. He was born in a foreign country and his parents had no idea there was a cartoon character named He-man. Funny, he even has the dash in his name. :D
    His full name is He-man Singh.

    That's pretty funny. I seriously know a girl named Shera. They should get together and..I don't know...make a cartoon?

  19. Darn! :eek:

    Poor guy! But, I guess the guy is from Asia. The name sounds like vietnamese or somthing like that... Maybe the pronunciation differs?
     
  20. My brother goes to school with a guy called BA.

    That's what everyone calles him because his full name is "Baby Aiden in the Mist" (don't know his surname) :D
