Whoa there, folks! Slow down! Come on over this way! Yeah, right over here. We’ve got an edition of Funny Names in the News for you so chock full of great names, we just can’t hardly believe it. So we’ll do it softly.
Before we get any further, I must draw your attention to our latest contributor Kerbey’s exceptional first piece on Engelbert Humperdinck right here. Man, she came right out cannons blazing like a Japanese traveler off a tour bus. Good stuff.
Moving on, we start right out with a very punchy name in Garwin Cockhead. Our Hard Work and Dedication Correspondent Dave brought this one to our attention, a tale of a man with an incredible recovery from a nasty heart condition. Just the way we like ’em.
Meanwhile, this blog’s intrepid Celebrity Uterus Evacuation Reporter Amb has been back at it and brings us the delightful news that the lovely Olivia Wilde and the very lovely Jason Sudeikis have co-birthed a child, and named him Otis Alexander Sudeikis. Much congratulatory feeling to the happy parents. And the small child as well.
Ms. Wilde also deserves wild cred for her tweet of the birth announcement, which went a little bit something like this :
Ladies and gentlemen, Otis Alexander Sudeikis has LEFT the building! (I’m the building)
Dave has also been watching some men run rather far in a relatively short amount of time, and learned that the Boston Marathon was won by San Diego native Meb Keflezighi. Let’s all sing Keflezighi won the race to the tune of Elton John’s Can You Feel the Love Tonight to celebrate.
What? Why not? Fine, we’ll move on.
Dave is apparently a fan of boxing. Who knew? Anyway, he’s brought our attention to this story, which is titled “Patty Boom Boom Races to the Top“. What more do you need? Click on over and find out what the heck’s going on!
Our Senior Men Hitting Each Other Writer Dave has this next one covered too. Back to you Dave!
Last Saturday, Bernard Humphrey Hopkins again became the oldest fighter to win a world title fight, and also became the oldest fighter to unify world titles, beating Beibut Shumenov. In the fight, Hopkins won Shumenov’s WBA Light Heavyweight title, to add to the IBF Light Heavyweight title Hopkins won from Tavoris Cloud in March 2013 and defended against Karo Murat in October.
Lots of funny names there, thanks for that one Dave!
Dave has also been keeping an eye on hockey for us (how does he find the time!), and spotted Detroit Red Wings’ Jordin Tootoo pull of a heartwarming gesture of offering a small child his stick after the game. This made the kid…let’s say pretty happy. You should watch it, it’ll warm those ol’ cockles no matter who you are.
I also find it great that Mr. Tootoo plays with the number 22.
But wait! I have just one more big name for you. It’s from England, where the venerable Leicester City Footsoccerball team were confirmed as the second tier champions this week and will be promoted to the Premier League next season. This will definitely delight not only their striker Jeff Schlupp, but also the Thai owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. I’m off to create a freestyle jazz record in his honor.
See you next week, enjoy your weekend of crazy shenanigans and double doses of poutine!
