NFT: Fun With Names

mrvax : 1/10/2018 2:19 pm
The 3 Stooges were very good with their names. Remember that law firm named "Dewey, Cheat'em & Howe"?

Well, being a bit of a jackass myself, I came up with a few.

Childcare worker: Mrs. Patty Kake
Female gym teacher: Ms. Les Being
OB/GYN: Dr. Phil Lopian

Take a wack at it!
Here's one for BBI...

The ending credits of the show started with thanks to the colorfully nicknamed actual staffers: producer Doug "the subway fugitive, not a slave to fashion, bongo boy frogman" Berman;[16] "John 'Bugsy' Lawlor, just back from the ..." every week a different eating event with rhyming foodstuff names; David "Calves of Belleville" Greene;[17] Catherine "Frau Blücher" Fenollosa, whose name caused a horse to neigh and gallop (an allusion to a running gag in the movie Young Frankenstein);[18] and Carly "High Voltage" Nix,[19] among others. Following the real staff was a lengthy list of pun-filled fictional staffers and sponsors such as statistician Marge Innovera ("margin of error"), customer care representative Haywood Jabuzoff ("Hey, would ya buzz off"), meteorologist Claudio Vernight ("cloudy overnight"), optometric firm C. F. Eye Care ("see if I care"), Russian chauffeur Pikup Andropov ("pick up and drop off"), Leo Tolstoy biographer Warren Peace ("War and Peace"), hygiene officer and chief of the Tokyo office Oteka Shawa ("oh take a shower"), Swedish snowboard instructor Soren Derkeister ("sore in the keister"), law firm Dewey, Cheetham & Howe ("Do we cheat 'em? And how!"), Greek tailor Euripides Eumenades ("You rip-a these, you mend-a these"),and many, many others, usually concluding with Erasmus B. Dragon ("Her ass must be draggin'"), whose job title varied, but who was often said to be head of the show's working mothers' support group.[20] They sometimes advised that "our chief counsel from the law firm of Dewey, Cheetham, & Howe is Hugh Louis Dewey, known to [group of people] in Harvard Square as Huey Louie Dewey." Huey, Louie, and Dewey were the juvenile nephews being raised by Donald Duck in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories. Guest accommodations were provided by The Horseshoe Road Inn ("the horse you rode in").

Well worth it though. You read the captain's name and don't wonder if you'd been had?

from '86-'94. The building was 500,000 sq. ft. They had an operator available to page folks throughout the building. Every few days, some jackass would prank an operator with a fake name. They did not have the ability to trace when the request came from.

What I didn't find very funny was idiots having Dr. Josef Mengele or similar paged to an extension.

Once, I called the operator and had "Buster Hyman" paged to call an extension. The operator gave me some shit about it but eventually went through with the building-wide page!
