    Oh, I truly hate the odd spelling of names. One I really hate is the placing of a capital letter in the middle of a name where it doesn't generally belong, i.e. DeNise or MoNique.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    When I worked for the OB doctor, we saw some very strange baby names. One mother who was named Monique, named her baby boy Nique and called him Nick.

    I hate the names with an apostrophe where there shouldn't be one like:
    M'Lynn or K'nesha. What's up with that?

    We named our daughter Lucy. Everyone everywhere wants to spell it
    Lucie, or Luci and I want to say: come ON, you've never heard of I Love Lucy???

    (she was named for my grandmother, not Lucille Ball by the way. )

    Where I live we're going through the strange name phase, biiiiiiig time. It seems that most names have to begin with either La or De. That would have a child being LaMarcus or DeChristian, or whatever else they can think of. The kid will be in fifth grade before he can spell his own name.

    I've told you all about the girl I went to college with who was named Aquanet, as in hairspray. But my all time favorite is the little girl at the school where my girlfriend taught. Her name was pronounce Paja May but spelled Pajama.

    Why would anyone do that to a kid?

    My sister works in the Orlando, FL school system. So far she's had 3 Cinderellas and a Casabeer. Yes Case of Beer. Now who would do THAT?

    My mom had a friend in college who was named Jett Black. Why parents? Are you trying to send them to therapy later in life?

    I did know a girl named Candy who had the misfortune to fall in love and Marry Mark Barr. Yes, she is now Candy Barr.

    And we have a family friend whose last name is Carroll, so her first name is??? Christmas. We call her boyfriend Easter Bunny. I really have no idea what his real name is, but when he started dating her because of her holiday name, he got stuck with Easter Bunny poor guy.

    I wish I had funny names to post......but I do have a fad and am sure it's posted here on the thread somewhere, but it feels good to be able to say it..or type it lol.....

    low rise pants and tight fitting crop tops on shall I say on overly plump girls/women yes women........eeewwww

    Go to your local Walmart and you will see more than your eyes can handle....and they're usually walking with their proud boyfriend urgh

    I kind of like funky names/spellings. My mom named me after my grandfather, my great grandfather, my uncle, and my cousin, so I promised myself that if I ever had a child I'd name it something wild like Pepto B. or Philanthropy to spite her.

    You failed to mention that the escort is wearing a wife beater shirt and has a belt bucket the size of a dinner plate. Yes, Walmat is the fashion capital of most any city I've ever been.

    When you're standing in line at a ferris wheel or a grocery store, and you see a woman who has NO BUSINESS wearing a tube top? So not only is the fabric straining to keep her...cleavage...in, but it's just revealing everywhere else? Reminds me of Rhonetta from the AI auditions. [shudder]
