and Sparkle McKnight isn't a funny name. It's a brilliant name
They're not all foreigners, if that helps.
Nah, doesn't help that much.
Hope Solo, not so much silly as awesome!
Johnny Canuck3 is a bit of a strange name
That's another good one
It is: luckily, it isn't my real name.
Fuck up earnest ernie.
Seems a strange thread for you to have read then, seeing as it says right there in the subject line that it's going to be all about silly names.
How else am I going to diss it, if I don't read it?
I find the names as funny as a dermatologist called Dr Creamer or someone with a name like Theresa Green.
If this thread was about the coolest names, would you have a problem?
People come up with funny place names, and you'll find foreigners quite tickled about places with names like Tooting. Not in the slightest bit funny to me because I'm so used to it, it doesn't even occur to me it's funny.
As for Dong Dong, I think that's brilliant. Takeshita is only funny if English is your first language. I'm sure the Japanese find some English names funny
You're reading far too much into this Mr Canuck3
Awww. If I'd known you were a teenager, I'd have left you alone
I do beg your pardon, youngster.
Also, I saw an opportunity, and I took it: no one else had shown up all po-faced and PC, so it was like an open field.
I think it's because the first thing I see today is the guy making the slanted eyes behind the Korean, and then there's a 'funny name' thread.
I'm as disgusted at that as you
If I'd known you're an ageist, I'd have..........well, I'd still have done everything pretty much the same.
And they are related how?
Worse, north american.
So you can see: the slitty eyed thing, then you yukking it up at some Korean names.
I know you aren't in the slightest a racist; but that juxtaposition just got me opening my mouth.
I think you'll find this thread was started before that picture appeared, and maybe the Korean/Japanese names I came out with are more familiar to me as I was hunting through the Japanese and Korean teams for gymnasts as I'm a great fan of the Japanese and Koreans, so therefore those names would have jumped out at me before most of the rest.
There are plenty of funny english language names, idiots like you only serve as useful idiots for the pc gone mad brigade.
Interesting, I have never seen a let's laugh at our 'funny English names' thread.
Have you seen the very first post in this thread?
How about the thread listing funny surnames in the UK, ie. Fuchs, Bastard etc?
Its a lets laugh at funny names thread, the first one listed was an english language one.
Find something else to get offended about.
It's good to know that idiots can be useful for something, though.
That was just a lead-in to the funny furriner names.
Minnie I was responding to the cliched 'pc gone mad brigade' comment. Sure peeps may think JC has over reacted, fair enough but spurting 'PC gone mad' went a little far for me.
Here you go. Some good English names in this thread
Ok...............I'm not keen on your avatar.
No, it's a funny one because it's Johnson Thompson (or is it Thompson Johnson? )
Laughing at 'Dong' has a long pedigree. The character's name is Long Duk Dong.
Separate names with a comma.
