Kate Micucci. Comedian. She hosted a monthly show called "Playin' with Micucci."

I imagine that she was laughed at so much in her life as a kid and adult that she was destined to either become a comedian — to laugh with the world, or an axe murderer — to silence the laughter! :lol:

She who laughs last ... laughs ... last.
She also plays the very shy gf of Raj Koothrappali, "The Big Bang Theory."


Naughty naughty.

Makes me think of a Dutch surname I encountered while staying in Amsterdam a few years ago: Flaterpoes.

A 'flater' means 'mistake' or, as an adjective, 'broken', in both Dutch and Afrikaans.

A 'poes' means 'cat' in Dutch, but in Afrikaans it's a really rude term for 'vagina'.

Imagine my reaction, as a brand new arrival in Amsterdam, when my then-boyfriend introduced his neighbour as 'Mrs Flaterpoes'. I was mortified!!!

They broke up. I think a lot of viewers felt like The Bride of Monster that her character was just too damn creepy.
My surname definitely ranks up there with Micucci, but as a matter of policy I don't use it in online fora like this.

You know, your bride is right. Her character was spooky. The climbing out of bathroom windows was a bit much for me, however, I was hoping they'd positively develop her character.

I won't ask about your surname Monster, out of respect, but the very fact that you said it ranks up there with Micucci? surely piques my interest. Curiosity is killing many treecats now. :lol:

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

My grandfather was an OB/GYN, and a (now secondhand) account has him trying unsuccessfully to talk a couple out of naming two successive girls "Menstruation" and "Placenta", respectively. They thought those names sounded pretty.

My cousin has been researching the family tree. I have a multiple-great aunt who was named Medulla.

Or a woman named Truelove? Only about two references to her in my genealogy research. Actually, she may a key to a roadblock in my research but so far nobody seems to have any other information on her.

With all due respect RFC, you got nothing on a cousin of mine, who named all his daughter with rather flowery artistic names, such Rumia (translated "God shall elevate"), Yonat Bat-Ami (lit. "dove daughter of my people"), Pliah ("wonder"), Me'ona
("place of refuge") and Hemda Tzofia ("delight" and "oversee").

Well, certainly in America it's a good thing that name changes are legal and fairly easy. Incidentally, two of the most common reasons for changing ones name is listed as . . .

1. To replace a frivolous name given by their parents (e.g., old name Mikey Maus, new name Marcus Maus)

2. To replace a name which might be considered undesirable with a more desirable one (e.g. old surname Lipschitz, new surname London)

Although, Morgan Rice Weber has the stately ring of a stage name, all set for Tinseltown.

There are times I wonder if parents were tripping on LSD at the time. After all, names are changed to protect the innocent. LOL

Imagine how much suffering names have subjected many helpless kids to. Parents should be liable for torture by nomenclature.

I can add to the "how many with the same name" malarkey.

Firstly, as a Scout we had either 6 or 7 named 'Andrew' at the same time - out of about 25-30.

More recently, the number of people named 'Peter' in my local Ambulance service. Still got 3 even after the non-emergency side was privatised. When I started there were at least 6, and when the longest serving colleague started there he said there were, if memory serves, 14!

So I expect these kids to start singing "Don't Cry For Me, Argentina" or "I Don't Know How To Love Him". ;)
