1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    How about my half sister? Her name is unfortunately Benalice. My dad's name (Ben) and former evil step mother (Alice) combined. Turrible...

    I work with a gentleman whose daughter has a girl in her class named La-a. Anyone want to take a stab at the pronunciation?

    I've been a recipient of that joke chain email, unfortunately.

    It was a girl who spelled her name La-ia, and expected it to be pronounced Ladashia.

    I too have seen that, the one where its 'femal-e' rather than female, etc. Once you see it on a class list, however, the joke is no longer funny. I hath seen it with mine own eyes (and it was just La-a without the i). I will have to see if I can get my hands on it and scan it in....likewise I had to take screen shots of my email inbox to provide the existence of Mike Hunt with whom I occasionally work for proof amongst my friends.

    Oh I believe you, there are very bad ones out there. There was talk of "Dat Ho" being a joke, until someone on the internet posted the yearbook picture, and people called the school to very the student's existence.

    There is a film producer from Korea who hangs around Hollywood and goes by "Milton Kim" or "Milton S. Kim". I wondered why he called himself "Milton" as he was obviously a Korean national. A friend told me his real name was "Suk Dong Kim" I understood completely. [​IMG] His IMDB listing http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1557629/ indicates he was executive producer of a Traci Lords movie.

    I've said this one before in past threads, but here goes. My wife is from Guatemala and she went to a baptism in a very small and secluded village (where a Mayan language is the first language) and the baby boy's name was "Hitler Billy Graham". Of course this is a verbal and mostly illiterate culture, so the spelling is my own.

    Robert Knepper is most likely the worst one ive heard yet. For those who dont know, "Knepper" means "F*ck" on my mother language (Danish).

    There was a Nicholas Cage SNL skit where he was trying to think of a good name for his baby with his expectant wife. His name was pronounced "Os-wee-pay" Spelled Asswipe.

    I knew a kid in high school named Brick. Not so bad, but his last name was Wall. WTF were his parents thinking?


    Ugh, I hate pun names. My high school biology teacher was named Brick Street.

    Yeah, it's funny to you, the parent, for the first few days I'm sure, but your kid is going to have to live a lifetime of hearing the same stupid jokes/reactions.

    I knew a Vietnamese girl named Porn. The odd thing was in Vietnam her name was something normal like Lily but upon moving to the US her family named her Porn. [​IMG]

    I worked with a kid in high school whose first name was Jazz. I thought he was joking for like a month until he showed me his drivers license. His dad was this crazy long-haired hippy that would come into our store and try to bum free stuff from his son.
