funny names

We always talk about funny baby names...Have y'all heard about the controversy over Harry Baals?  This man was a prominent political figure whose last name was pronounced BALLS.  For real.  His family claims that he was named before balls got the connotation it has now, and his family members have since changed the pronunciation.  Now they want to name a government building after him, but some people don't want it.  Here's the story:

I have come across some funny names during my years as a transcriptionist, such as William Crapps and Dr. Honey Mae Getubig.  You can't make this up!

I swear sometimes people should just change their last names, too! :D
