Morning Funny Names fans! Can you believe it’s October already? Of 2013. How did that happen?! When I was child, 2013 was one of those years we were supposed to have flying cars and such, but I don’t see too many of those around, except in certain European countries where the driving culture is more…relaxed. But enough about things that don’t exist, let’s get to the funny names that do exist (and terrific segues that start news round-up articles).
In exciting movie news, our Exciting Movie News Correspondent Amb brings us the scoop that the highly awaited space thriller Gravity is opening this weekend and gaining terrific reviews. Directed by cerebral camera wielding genius Alfonso Cuaron, the pic features the voices of Orto Ignatiussen and Basher Savage alongside the star names of Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, so there’s plenty for funny names fans to see (and hear) in the flick. Go see it!
Our Punch in the Face Correspondent Dave has some news about boxing (surprise, surprise) as well. Well named fighter Tavoris Karod Cloud lost his bout with Adonis Superman Stevenson, which is really no shame when you consider he was fighting a man named Adonis Superman Stevenson. That is extraordinary. In retro boxing news, exactly 19 years ago future world champion Chris Byrd beat Waxxem Fikes. If it’s any consolation to Waxxem, he wins the “who has the funniest name” battle by a considerable distance.
Dave also brings us the latest in petty revenge news, with the story of Quin Woodward-Pu, who avenged a young man kinda-sorta breaking up with her by text message by forwarding all the “sexts” he had sent her, to his employer. You see, he had been sending some “late night text messages”, if you know what I mean, from his work phone. Still, Quin Woodward-Pu is one hell of a name.
Our Just Generally Always Excited Correspondent Amb is also excited about a new TV show (I know, get out of town!). It’s called Garfunkel and Oates, which is funny, and stars Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci. It’ll be a good time, I’m sure. Check with Amb if you want to hear all about it!
Dave also dug up this article on the new health care law, which includes a comment by Harvard political scientist Theda Skocpol. We salute his/her name as fully Ivy League worthy.
That’s all we’ve got for you this week, hope you got your funny names Friday dose from our roundup!
