    There's actually a US senator from my home state (home, as in I moved away long before I could have ever voted for... or in this case, against him) named Crapo... pretty accurate representation of his politics, too . He pronounces it "Cray-Poe", of course... but I suspect it's frequently, and intentionally, mispronounced .

    I have a friend who wanted to marry a guy so she could become a More-Strong.

    Nothing as great as John Donne and his wife, Anne More, though:

    A HYMN TO GOD THE FATHER.

    I.
    WILT Thou forgive that sin where I begun,
    Which was my sin, though it were done before?
    Wilt Thou forgive that sin, through which I run,
    And do run still, though still I do deplore?
    When Thou hast done, Thou hast not done,
    For I have more.

    II.
    Wilt Thou forgive that sin which I have won
    Others to sin, and made my sin their door?
    Wilt Thou forgive that sin which I did shun
    A year or two, but wallowed in a score?
    When Thou hast done, Thou hast not done,
    For I have more.

    III.
    I have a sin of fear, that when I have spun
    My last thread, I shall perish on the shore ;
    But swear by Thyself, that at my death Thy Son
    Shall shine as he shines now, and heretofore ;
    And having done that, Thou hast done ;
    I fear no more.

    I don't know I guess I see the comedy in being called crapo.

    I know a Ms Bich (pronounciation's same as 'b*tch'), a Ms Ho and was once operated upon by an orthopaedic surgeon named Mr Thong.

    I love Chinese names.

    There was a news anchor here for some time who pronounced his last name Mallet as "Mal-A".

    Dude. It's Mallet, all right? Give it up.

    I know. It just begs for "Dick" jokes.

    My twin reminds me of the car driver Dick Trickle.
