Why do people name their children things like Phinneas and Apple?

Proof that there's a little bit of evil in us all.

I wondered that, too. I guess it's a pathetic attempt to be original. I can just see bad jokes radiating from them. Poor kids.. school will be bad until they find out who their parents are.. unless they don't go to a real school. then, they're safe.

I imagine they'll all either go to private schools that cost more in a year then either of our college educations combined.. or they'll have their own tutors. God forbid they have to co-exist with us underlings...

I wish I could give it to you, but if I did it would ruin some of the mysteriousness of my anonymity. We can talk on here though.. I have no qualms. :)

Have you heard the musical Avenue Q?

That would give whole new meaning to the song:

The Internet Is For Porn.

I would want my child to pay a large amount of money for counselling in their adult times, and to ensure that the moment they're old enough they move out of the house.

Thus I will name them something evil.

Like Combustible Bob.

Let's not forget my personal favorite, Gregory William Dye.

Shorten that, and we find that indeed, Greg Will Dye.

Fraught with portent... a phrase which hear means "hurts Byron's tongue to say at 4.22 in the morning on Christmas. Now shut up and eat your pudding."
