Back in my wage-slave days at a loan company, I remember a couple names that have stuck in my brain all these years...Rotunda, and Velveeta. I am not joking either. Those were their first names too. I do not recall their last names, fortunately.

I have a social worker friend who handled the cases for twins from Dallas, Lemonjello (le-MAHN-jello) and Orangejello (or-AHN-jello).

*hugs* thanks for the linky love

Monkey: At the VERY least (and that's a lot of least) they were spelled correctly. Non standard spelling either from some misdirected drive for difference or from outright illiteracy drives me NUTS!

Angel: Too funny. My pleasure on the link--I check in a couple of times a day and inevitably get a chuckle. Thanks for being there!

NFO: She's the leader of a group to help keep a charter school in the area. Looked up the background on the above picture.....

Worked with Chili Berger (real name) and a Benjamin Dover once. Then there was a sales guy years ago from an aerospace parts place. The guy's name was (no kidding) Richard Head. He obviously, went by "Richard". If you asked for "Dick Head" the secretary would usually say "which department, we have several".
