Happppppy Friday everyone! Arto is leaving for Chicago today, and some recent late nights have driven my schedule all caddywhompus but it takes more than that to kill a bull moose!
“Wait, Arto‘s leaving for Chicago? But why?!?!,” you may find yourself asking. Well, for what other reason than to attend a National Safety Council trade show, with the hope of meeting someone from their awesomely-named board of directors, including Linda Burtwistle, Debora Biggs, Janet Froetscher and Moises Huntt. We wish Arto nothing but the best in this endeavor.
But enough about Arto. If you’re the kind of person who’s thinking “Golly gosh, I really enjoyed it last week when MO ROCCA RETWEETED LIZ, but I’m feeling a bit deprived of funny names in food this week!” fret no more, because we have quite the scrumptious little morsel to share with you! It seems that some enterprising soul has been busy preparing CumberCupcakes depicting a cartoon likeness of everyone’s favorite fluffy-named fellow, Benedict Cumberbatch attached to a fine sugary confection! If there’s a holy trinity of events on the Blog of Funny Names, this could be it. The CumberCupcakes combine Liz’s love of food with Amb’s love of swoony male leads, and then throw one of the most popular names in the history of BoFN on top for good measure.
Up next, our lovely Green with Envy Correspondent Amb makes an impassioned plea:
Can we talk about how much I love Lorde’s new album? And how very jealous I am of her vocal cords? And hair?!? amb xo.
The answer to that question is a resounding Sure!
Amb loves Lorde’s new album more than Diddy loves musicians who sing about squids (or at least one squid) eating dough out of a polyethylene bag, and even more than Liz loves bringing home the bacon, and is so very jealous of Lorde’s vocal cords… and hair! Though Amb and I often speak of our melding minds, I can’t expound on that any further for her. Perhaps she can fill in for you in the comments section.
Our next serving comes from Lieutenant Mustache Correspondent me (Arto is Chief Executive Mustache Correspondent), and its inclusion is based on you trusting me that mustache is a funny name for a facial accoutrement. Not convinced? Perhaps moustache might tickle your funny-name bone. Hmm, maybe I’ll just have to distract you, then…
*Dusts off shoulders* That should get those hardened skeptics off my case, so I can move on to this week’s most heartwarming news (which is again about food). After their daughter’s wedding was called off, Carol and Willie Fowler did something totally awesome. They called Elizabeth Omilami of the Hosea Feed The Hungry organization to invite 200 local homeless folks to enjoy the catered wedding food. What an awesome idea!
And for our final course, our esteemed Where The Heck Does He Find This Stuff – He Doesn’t Even Follow Horse Racing correspondent Arto brings us this fantastic news, which I will paste verbatim because this sentence is pure perfection:
“Georgina Horsley-Gubbins emerged triumphant at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials when winning the White Company BSPS Gold Cup Sports Pony Final.”
And there you have it – my second-favorite Horse-themed name on this blog, and how perfect is that name for someone in her line of work?!
That’s it for Funny Names in the News 54. As the great Marie Antoinette
