This one's for psu_jedi

Karen and I have been discussing future names for our future children. We haven't come up with anything solid yet, so don't ask. As I was lying in bed just recently, though, it occurred to me that there's one name we haven't ruled out. Of course, the name must be ruled out if our theoretical future son refuses to become a doctor of obstetrics. After all, it wouldn't be fair to name him "Obadiah Juan" if he wouldn't end up "Obie Juan Cohen, O.B."

If you need my mailing address so that you can send me packages of rotting fruit, just let me know. I had to empty a raccoon out of our trash can this evening, so I know said packages will find an appropriate home.

No, I'm not making it up about the raccoon. I suspect that simply posting about the above name rules it out entirely.

I owe my punning skills to Spider Robinson, who set me up for this one.

And, not to be a sticker, but it's psu_jedi, because I have to make life difficult for people.

*uses the Force* You don't have to be a stickler. There is no error. This is not the HTML you were looking for. Move along.

remeber Penn Jillette
he named his daughter "Moxy Crimefighter." I think Manning might be a good middle name, and I fancy Jay Benjamin Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Severus Dweezil Cohen for one of my nieces. Or Shaquonda Cohen? Apple Cohen? Woodrow Wilson Smith Cohen?

I can keep this up all day, ya know.

We don't want to have to hang the name "Jay" on anyone if we can help it. Keep breathing, dammit.

You have named one of my greatest fears.

You know, I can't die, breathing or not. The universe obviously can't get along without me. And it is possible and permissible to say "It's Jay, after Jay Leno and Benjamin, after Benjamin Franklin." Nudge nudge wink wink....

Odd thoughts strike common places
Due to a typo on a different name, the the thought of have a niece named Eris stuck me pleasantly.

On a different topic, since my memory is shot, what is your hebrew name? I know you're Chaim, but I can't recall if you have a second name or if you do, what it is.

And I'll name them anything I want. If I need to name them "I have a bastard uncle", I'll do that.

AFAIK, It's Ben Yoman. It SHOULD be Benyamine, since I'm Benjamin. That's what Mom tried for, instead of "Son of Yoman."

And if there's one thing we know about the last marriage of either of our parents, it's that they were together when I was born, Jersey Boy. That's "I have a godlike PITA uncle" as a corrected name.

Oooh! Ooh! Mistah Kottah! Oooh! Oooh!
Seeing as I named the new Volvo wagon Inga, maybe you should name a daughter Olga.

I need to stop coming to work drunk, or drinking 3/5 of a bottle of rum when i get in......
